Item #d94apr143

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (FCCC) entered into force on March 21, 1994, with ratifications on file from 58 signatories. Within six months of this date, industrialized countries must submit national plans for meeting the current treaty commitment--reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2000.

The FCCC secretariat has launched an Information Exchange System on Country Activities on Climate Change (CLIMEX), which will act as a clearinghouse for general information, national data, and funding sources among developed and developing countries. Contact Janos Pasztor, Manager, at the new address for the FCCC secretariat: Geneva Executive Ctr., 11/13 Chemin des Anemones, Chatelaine, Geneva, Switz. (tel: +41-22 979 9111; fax: +41-22 979 9034).
