In 2007, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued the results of its Forth Assessment Report on the effects of global warming. The report provides the largest and most detailed summary of the climate change situation ever undertaken, involving thousands of authors from dozens of countries. The results of the report are clear: Warming of the climate system is unequivocal. Anthropogenic emissions are influencing our climate and are very likely to have a serious impact on it in the future.
Liechtenstein's Fifth National Communication takes into account this updated and even stronger scientific evidence on climate change and reflects the fact that our national and international climate change related activities will be in support of the conclusion of a legally binding climate change agreement after 2012.
The Fifth National Communication therefore provides comprehensive information on the action taken by Liechtenstein on the commitments under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change as well as under the Kyoto Protocol. During the past four years fundamental improvements have been achieved with respect to the quality of greenhouse gas emissions data as well as on information related to implemented policy measures and emission projections.
