The Kyoto protocol was designed to unite the nations of the world to execute the objective of the United Nations Framework Convention of Climate Change. The objective of the convention is to stabilize the atmospheric concentrations of the greenhouse gases, in order to prevent the adverse impact of human activities on climate change.
It set legally binding targets for the industrialized nations to ensure that the members follow through. It has been designed to reduce the emission levels of carbon dioxide, hydrofluorocarbons, methane, nitrous oxide, sulphur hexafluoride and perfluorocarbons.
The major polluters (developed nations) were required to manage their transportation sector with the aim of reducing automobile gas emissions. They were also required to employ renewable energy sources for better use.
