Was Kyoto climate deal a success? Figures reveal mixed results
First commitment period: —12 Under the Kyoto Protocol, 38 industrialized countries and the European Community the European Union, made up of 15 states at the time of the Kyoto negotiations commit themselves to binding targets for GHG emissions.
Under the Protocol, only the Annex I Parties have committed themselves to national or joint reduction targets formally called "quantified emission limitation and reduction objectives" QELRO — Article 4. Emission limits do not include emissions by international aviation and shipping. Annex I Parties can use a range of sophisticated "flexibility" mechanisms see below to meet their targets. Annex I Parties can achieve their targets by allocating reduced annual allowances to major operators within their borders, or by allowing these operators to exceed their allocations by offsetting any excess through a mechanism that is agreed by all the parties to the UNFCCC, such as by downloading emission allowances from other operators which have excess emissions credits.
At the time of the original Kyoto targets, studies suggested that the flexibility mechanisms could reduce the overall aggregate cost of meeting the targets. The difference between IET and the project-based mechanisms is that IET is based on the setting of a quantitative restriction of emissions, while the CDM and JI are based on the idea of "production" of emission reductions. The reductions are called " credits " because they are emission reductions credited against a hypothetical baseline of emissions.
Each Annex I country is required to submit an annual report of inventories of all anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions from sources and removals from sinks under UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol. These countries nominate a person called a "designated national authority" to create and manage its greenhouse gas inventory. Virtually all of the non-Annex I countries have also established a designated national authority to manage their Kyoto obligations, specifically the "CDM process".
International Emissions Trading A number of emissions trading schemes ETS have been, or are planned to be, implemented. This scheme is run by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. This is run by the European Commission. Switzerland: the Swiss ETS, which runs from to , to coincide with the Kyoto Protocol's first commitment period.
This is run by the Government of Alberta. This scheme caps emissions from power generation in ten north-eastern U.

The Kyoto Protocol is an international agreement, which for the first time establishes legally binding limits for 37 industrialized countries on emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases GHG. Over the five-year period from to , these amount to an average limit of 5 percent against levels.
The main objective of the Convention was to stabilize atmospheric GHG concentrations at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference within the climatic system. Thus it provides legally binding emission targets for ratifying countries — targets that are based on a five-year budget period. It contains commitments in three areas: Citations 0. References 7. This research hasn't been cited in any other publications. Clare Breidenich. Jul Different targets for stabilization require different levels of cuts in emissions over time.

A few Parties, e. The main goal of the Kyoto Protocol is to control emissions of the main anthropogenic human-emitted greenhouse gases GHGs in ways that reflect underlying national differences in GHG emissions, wealth, and capacity to make the reductions. One such project is The Adaptation Fund "  ", that has been established by the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change to finance concrete adaptation projects and programmes in developing countries that are Parties to the Kyoto Protocol.
Saving or sinking the Kyoto Protocol? The conditions of the Kyoto Protocol consist of mandatory targets on greenhouse gas emissions for the world's leading economies.
