🌎2/16 - The Kyoto Protocol
The Kyoto Protocol specifies a legally binding emission reduction target for six types of reduction target gases.
The Kyoto Protocol was an international treaty which extended the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) that commits state parties to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, based on the scientific consensus that global warming is occurring and that human-made CO2 emissions are driving it. Countries that have ratified this protocol will reduce emissions of six types of greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide, and apply non-tariff barriers to countries that do not reduce their emissions. The Kyoto Protocol was adopted in Kyoto, Japan, on 11 December 1997 and entered into force on 16 February 2005. There were 192 parties to the Protocol in 2020.
The Kyoto Protocol implemented the objective of the UNFCCC to reduce the onset of global warming by reducing greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere to "a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system" .
