Kyoto Protocol - full text

— filed under:

In December 1997, more than 160 nations met in Kyoto, Japan, to negotiate binding limitations on greenhouse gases for the developed nations, pursuant to the objectives of the Framework Convention on Climate Change of 1992. The outcome of the meeting was the Kyoto Protocol, in which the developed nations agreed to limit their greenhouse gas emissions, relative to the levels emitted in 1990. The Kyoto Protocol lays the ground for the international community to take the first steps in curbing harmful greenhouse emissions and combating climate change.
