  Resolution in Support of the Kyoto Protocol
 

Regional Council endorsed the ratification of the Kyoto Protocol. The Kyoto Protocol was negotiated in 1997 and set specific reduction in greenhouse gas emissions for 38 developed countries.

The Kyoto Protocol will enter into force once 55 nations, representing 55 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, have ratified the Protocol.
