Kyoto Protocol

  1. 1. The Kyoto Protocol   • The Kyoto Protocol treaty was negotiated in  December 1997 at the city of Kyoto, Japan and  came into force February 16th, 2005. • "The Kyoto Protocol is a legally binding  agreement under which industrialized countries  will reduce their collective emissions of  greenhouse gases by 5.2% compared to the  year 1990 (but note that, compared to the  emissions levels that would be expected by  2010 without the Protocol, this target represents  a 29% cut).
  2. 2. The road ahead • The Kyoto Protocol is generally seen as an important first step towards a truly global emission reduction regime that will stabilize GHG emissions, and provides the essential architecture for any future international agreement on climate change. • By the end of the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol in 2012, a new international framework needs to have been negotiated and ratified that can deliver the stringent emission reductions the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has clearly indicated are needed.
