4Declarationis a series of norms and principles drafted by states and which they pledge to abide by. However, there is no forceful component to a declaration; those States that do not observe those norms and principles are subject to “moral sanctions” before the international community (i.e., Millennium Declaration). Source: http://www.unfpa.org/
5 Convention involves a series of agreements amongst States, which include norms and principles that States are obliged to comply with (i.e., the American Convention on Human Rights). Given the obligations they impose on states, the conventions enter into force only after the State’s government has ratified them. Signing these instruments is not enough for them to become legally binding. Source: http://www.unfpa.org/

36 According to the UNFCCC climate change refers to a change of climate that is attributed directly or indirectly to human activity that alters the composition of the global atmosphere and that is in addition to natural climate variability observed over comparable time periods. Recently the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) defines climate change as any change in climate over time, whether due to natural variability or as a result of human activity (Fourth Assessment Report - AR4, 2007).

39 IPCC (2007) defines Mitigation as the technological change and substitution that reduce resource inputs and emissions per unit of output. Mitigation is reducing emissions of greenhouse gases or sequestering emissions – is critical to slowing climate change Although several social, economic and technological policies would produce an emission reduction, with respect to climate change, mitigation means implementing policies to reduce G H G emissions and enhance sinks. The current international legal mechanism for countries to reduce their emissions is the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
40Adaptation, or coping with climate change impacts, means ¨adjustments in ecological. social or economic systems in response to actual or expected climate stimuli and their effects or impacts. This term refers to changes in processes, practice and structure to moderate potential damages or to benefit from opportunities associated with climate change ¨ (source IPCC 2001) Adaptation is critical for vulnerable population specially those dependent on small-scale resources. To this group but especially for women, climate change could severely change their ability to manage natural resources, as women have different roles and responsibilities which give rise to differences to cope with change.
