The Republic of China (Taiwan) is currently not an official signatory party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) or the Kyoto Protocol. Nevertheless, Taiwanese delegations have – with the status of a non-governmental organization (NGO) – attended the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer (1985), Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer (1987), UNFCCC (1992), Kyoto Protocol (1997), and the follow-up meetings and Conferences of the Parties (COPs). In the wake of the 2009 UN Summit at Copenhagen Taiwan declared its intent to seek formal admission to the UNFCCC as an observer. Following the declaration of the Copenhagen Accord, the government expressly declared its full support and even submitted its Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Measures (NAMAs) to the UNFCCC. Taiwan has committed to participating in the global fight against climate change. The article introduces climate law, legal structures and powers in Taiwan as well as emission reduction aims, development of renewable energy and focused intruments to mitigate CO2 emissions.Aihealueet
