Abstract

The Kyoto Protocol of 1997—as currently in force—has described the parameters in which a reduction of greenhouse gases (GHG) has or should take place.1 The Protocol is underpinned by, and strengthens commitments made under, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).2 In the 7th Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC (the Marrakesh Accords), flexible mechanisms to reduce greenhouse emissions were discussed and agreed upon.3 Unfortunately, the Copenhagen conference’s attempt to realize consensus on still outstanding problems such as the governance issues on Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects has failed.
