The aim of the UNFCCC is to prevent dangerous human interference with the climate system. The Polish presidency of the UNFCCC will be marked by a focus on technology, man and nature. The presidency will call for the development of green industries and solutions, the ‘solidarity-and-just’ transition of industrial nations and the achievement of carbon neutrality through forests, land and water management.
