Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol's Clean Development Mechanism: Brazil, Bangladesh, Indonesia, South Africa
Juta and Company Ltd, 2004 - Changement global (Environnement) - 107 pages
Global warming and climate change pose a dire threat to life. The Kyoto Protocol is the UN treaty committing signatories to dealing with climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This is a non-technical account of what inspired people to transform the dry language of this international climate change treaty into measurable improvements in people's lives in four countries (Brazil, Bangladesh, Indonesia and South Africa). These stories come to life through a kaleidoscope of photographs and children's artworks.
