The conference’s goal was a new international agreement on climate change, applicable to all, to keep global warming below 2°C.

He is also a member of the Sierra Club Coalition Climate Team. As a member of the SSC since 2008, Jahdiel has held various roles as a national leader including serving as a youth delegate to the United Nations Convention on Climate Change in Qatar, Poland and France.

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was adopted during the Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit in 1992. This Framework Convention is a universal convention of principle, acknowledging the existence of anthropogenic (human-induced) climate change and giving industrialized countries the major part of responsibility for combating it.
