A consensus document in the 2009 Copenhagen Summit on Climate Change meant to outline how the world’s industrial countries will take measures to abate the effects of global warming, particularly focusing on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Government representatives from 170 countries participated in the Copenhagen Summit also known as the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference to draft the agreement. The 2009 agreement on climate change was not passed unanimously and does not contain any legally binding commitments for reducing carbon emissions.
