Nepal signed the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change on 12 June 1992; it was ratified on 2 May 1994 and entered into force on 31 July 1994. In order to meet its obligations and commitments to the Framework Convention on Climate Change, Nepal implemented a project entitled Nepal: Enabling Activities for the Preparation of the Initial National Communication Related to UNFCCC with the generous assistance of the United Nations Environment Programme-Global Environment Facility (UNEP-GEF). The project had nine activities with specified outputs. One of the major outputs was to prepare and submit the initial national communication to the Framework Convention secretariat and the Conference of the Parties.
