  • Annex I party term
Definition Signatories to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) are split into three groups:

Annex I parties (industrialized countries and the European Community) -- agree to reduce their emissions (particularly carbon dioxide) to target levels below their 1990 emissions levels.
Remark
If they cannot do so, they must buy emission credits or invest in conservation.

Annex II parties (developed countries and the European Community which pay for costs of developing countries) -- have to provide financial resources for the developing countries, are a sub-group of the annex I countries consisting of the OECD members, without those that were with transition economy in 1992.

Developing countries.

Australia, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, European Community, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russian Federation, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, United States of America. (40 countries and the European Community)

Plural: Annex I parties (Annex I countries)

Variants: Annex I country; Party included in Annex I

N.B.:

In the Convention these are listed as parties, not countries, and it will be seen that the "European Community" is one of the parties. Nonetheless, one often sees the phrase "Annex I countries" (or Annex I country).

The Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change has Annex B parties (a.k.a., Annex B countries).
