Climate negotiations

Climate change is a global crisis that must be solved with international collaboration. Friends of the Earth is at the forefront of the push to persuade countries around the world to unite in support of a strong, fair, and aggressive response to this crisis.

Policy experts and campaigners from Friends of the Earth U.S. engage in international climate negotiations as part of the 76-country Friends of the Earth International federation. Friends of the Earth International is an accredited observer organization within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, under which climate negotiations take place.

To achieve an equitable and just international climate agreement, the United States and the other industrialized countries that are responsible for most of the climate pollution in the atmosphere will need to agree to:

  • Dramatically reduce carbon emissions domestically without offset loopholes;
  • Assist those most affected by global climate change in dealing with its impacts;
  • Provide financial assistance to other countries to support their shift to clean energy; and
  • Contribute to efforts to protect the world’s forests to save the climate.
