According to the related government-approved document, Slovakia prefers implementing a single global and comprehensive legally binding tool that should ensure all large greenhouse-gas emitters participate in searching for effective solutions for dealing with climate change. Slovakia also pledges in the document its readiness to contribute towards securing resources for the UN's Green Climate Fund (GCF) mechanism which is aimed at transferring financial resources from the developed to the developing world in order to help third-world countries to implement methods for countering climate change.
