South Africa signed the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 1998 and the Kyoto Protocol in 2002. The Department of Environmental Affairs is the designated lead department responsible for the coordination and implementation of this country’s UNFCCC commitments and related matters. A National Committee on Climate Change (NCCC) was established to act as an advisory body to the Minister. This committee is obliged to report on climate change activities every four years through the National Communications to the UNFCCC.
