 Undersecretary of Treasury (HM)
 Institutional roots of the Undersecretariat of Treasury date back to Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror’s Period of Ottoman Empire. After Treasury in Ottoman Empire underwent some phases, it took its final structure with the establishment of Treasury Pay Office under the Ministry of Finance (MaliyeNezareti) in the year 1863. Treasury Pay Office fulfilled the classic treasury functions defined as equalization of the state revenues and expenditures by time and place, namely treasury operations, before the establishment of the Central Bank as follows:  Cash was transferred from the administrative units of the province having cash surplus to the ones having cash deficit. The result obtained by this way was combined with the province’s own accounts and the cash situation of the province was identified. When a province had cash surplus, this surplus was sent to the Treasury; when a province had cash deficit, then cash was requested from the Treasury. more

Climate Change
Climate Change is mentioned as one of the biggest global problems. Starting from late 1980s, to diminish adverse human effects and pressure on the climate system, there have been studies led by United Nations and finally in 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), in 1997 Kyoto Protocol (KP) have been established. UNFCCC and KP, made legal regulations about limiting and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and on the other side, started to lead international emission trading, technology and capital movements.

United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)
 UNFCCC have been opened for signature at UN Environment and Development Conference on 3-14 June 1992. The object and purpose of the UNFCCC are to stabilize ‘greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous (human-induced) interference with the climate system and it is envisaged that such a level should be achieved within a time frame sufficient to allow ecosystems to naturally adapt to climate change, to ensure sustainable production and economic development.
Basic principles of the convention are;

  • Protecting climate system on the basis of equity and in accordance with Parties’ common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities
  • Giving full consideration to the specific needs and special circumstances of developing countries, especially those that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change.
  • Taking precautionary measures which are cost effective and globally beneficial in order to minimize and mitigate adverse effects of climate change.
  • Supporting and taking sustainable development into account in Parties’ Development Programs.
  • Corporations of Parties.

Kyoto Protocol (KP)
In the city of Kyoto, Japan, at the 3rd Conference of the Parties (COP 3), world-wide binding targets for reducing greenhouse gases, “comprising the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Kyoto Protocol” was signed on 11 December 1997. In order for Kyoto Protocol to enter into force, Annex I parties having at least 55% of total CO2 emissions had been required, finally on 18 November 2004, this requirement met by the approval of Russian Federation on 16 February 2005 and KP could enter into force.

Turkey’s Position on Climate Change Negotiations
Turkey, when convention was opened for signature in 1992, were included both in the original text of the UNFCCC Annex 1 (historical responsibilities), as well as Annex 2 (financial responsibility) list. Turkey, within 1995-2000 COP period, due to being a developing country, had attempted to get out of the UNFCCC Annexes. In 2000, a change of attitude, Turkey submitted a proposal taking part in Annex-1 countries with special circumstances but not taking part in Annex-2 Countries. From October 29th to November 6th of 2001, city of Marrakech in Morocco, at the 7th Conference of the Parties (COP 7), Turkey’s request to be a Party that is out of Annex II but a part of Annex-I with special circumstances was accepted. Turkey legally became a Party to the convention as 189th Party of the convention on the 24 May 2004. Turkey is still a Party of convention in the Annex-1 list, of which special circumstances were recognized by the Convention Parties. more
