Language is a powerful thing. In multilateral agreements, the choice of words is always strategic and purposeful. Particularly in the context of the climate change negotiations, the great amount of acronyms, buzzwords and legal terms can be complex, overwhelming and misleading too.

This pocket book aims to be a supporting tool for a better understanding and application of the language in the UNFCCC negotiations.
