Beginning in the mid-1990's, the COP was used to negotiate the Kyoto Protocol.
The Kyoto Protocol raises many concerns, and if something is going to impact our economy so greatly, it should not raise any concerns and should be foolproof.

Perhaps the most significant setback of the Protocol is that developing countries (i.e. India, China and Brazil) do not have any binding targets. Under the Protocol, emissions of developing countries are allowed to grow in accordance with their development needs with the only commitment to controlling their GHG emissions being a voluntary pledge. Countries with second round Kyoto targets made up only 13.4% of annual global anthropogenic GHG emissions in 2010 with this figure likely to have decreased even further by 2014 due to the rapid growth/industrialisation of the developing world. On the global scale, existing policies appear to be too weak to prevent global warming from exceeding 2 or 1.5 degrees Celsius, relative to the pre-industrial level.

Another important element of the Kyoto Protocol is its flexibility mechanisms. These enable participating nations to achieve their emission targets by means other than simply reducing their own national emissions of greenhouse gases – hence, the term “flexibility mechanisms.” The Protocol provides for three such mechanisms:

The five principal concepts of the Kyoto Protocol are:[citation needed]
The withdrawal of Canada from the Kyoto Protocol was a good decision, the decrease in emissions was an unattainable goal, considering the cost, time, unfairness, dependency and technological advancement.

The Kyoto Protocol is an international system of governance, implemented under the for the purpose of regulating levels of greenhouse gases in the earth’s atmosphere. The Protocol was first adopted in principle at a 1997 United Nations-sponsored meeting held in Kyoto, Japan (hence, the name “Kyoto Protocol”), and officially came into force in 2005, after being formally ratified by the required number of nations. As a system of governance, the Protocol is underwritten by national governments and is operated under the aegis of the . Participating nations have agreed to meet certain greenhouse gas emissions targets, as well as submit to external review and enforcement of these commitments by United Nations-based bodies.

2.2 Since 1992, the Government of Canada has made domestic and international commitments to address climate change, including committing to reduce its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) (). Although the Minister of the Environment announced in December 2011 that Canada would withdraw from the Kyoto Protocol, the Government of Canada remains committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions as a Party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and under the 2009 Copenhagen Accord.


2.5 Our past audit reports examining the management of climate change in 1998, 2000, 2001, , , and found, among other things, that the federal government had not created effective governance structures for managing climate change activities designed to meet greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets. Our reports identified weaknesses in horizontal governance, accountability, and coordination. In our on climate change plans under the Kyoto Protocol Implementation Act, we recommended that Environment Canada ensure that it support future climate change plans using an appropriate management accountability and reporting framework. We recommended that the framework include
