  • Kyoto Protocol
    It is the first ever international agreement aimed at reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on an international scale. It was signed in Kyoto in 1997, wherein the signatory countries agreed that industrialised nations would reduce their GHG emissions by 5% between 2008 and 2012 in relation to 1990 levels. Following its ratification by Russia, the Protocol entered into force in February 2005.
    Spanish: Protocolo de Kioto
