Is the basic idea of the considered national Climate change act in accordance with the international law?
- Yes, it is. We conclude that the core parts of the CCA are in full accordance with the following international agreements
- the Charter of the United Nations – http://www.un.org/en/documents/charter/index.shtml
- the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties – http://untreaty.un.org/ilc/texts/instruments/english/conventions/1_1_1969.pdf
- the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, including the Kyoto protocol – http://unfccc.int/resource/docs/convkp/conveng.pdf, http://unfccc.int/resource/docs/convkp/kpeng.html
Also the core parts of the CCA are in full accordance with the Articles 2, 4 and 193 of the Treaty of the functioning of the European Union – http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:C:2008:115:0047:0199:EN:PDF. However, the same conclusion cannot be made about the supplementary provisions which are restricted to certain level by the EU directives and regulations.
