Kyoto Protocol

Kyoto Protocol:
The Kyoto Protocol is an international agreement linked to the United Nations Framework Convention on climate change. It was adopted in Kyoto, Japan, on 11th December 1997, and came into force on 16th February 2005. The Kyoto Protocol recognized the fact that developed countries are principally responsible for the current high levels of greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere because of their long years of industrial activity. The major feature of the Kyoto Protocol is that it sets binding targets for 37 industrialized countries, and the European community, for reducing green gas emissions.
