Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The world community is acting to safeguard the interests of future generations through agreements such as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The goal of this Convention is the "stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system".

The JRC is examining ways in which information and service s can be provided that help the European Union and others (such as our trading partners and development beneficiaries) to implement the Kyoto Protocol and to verify compliance with the terms of the Protocol. This requires dialogue with our policy making partner Directorates General, especially DG ENV. .
