Has the Kyoto Protocol been a Success?

To a certain extent, it could be said that the Kyoto protocol has been a success. This is very true when most of the individual member states are concerned. Many ratified nations have diligently stuck to their agreement in cutting the emissions. However, the increase in the level of emissions in other nations has clearly failed the collective target set by the Kyoto protocol.

Over the years, the Conference of Parties and the member nations have made much research and preparations to accommodate the terms of the protocol and reduce the emissions in the atmosphere. Even though the target has not been met successfully, the protocol has been successful in bringing the whole world together for one cause. Moreover, all the right steps have been taken to carry forward the measures for the ultimate fight against global warming.
