Kyoto Protocol
Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework
Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)
"The Kyoto Protocol is a legally binding
agreement under which industrialized countries
will reduce their collective emissions of
greenhouse gases by 5.2 compared to the year
1990 (but note that, compared to the emissions
levels that would be expected by 2010 without the
Protocol, this target represents a 29 cut). The
goal is to lower overall emissions from six
greenhouse gases - carbon dioxide, methane,
nitrous oxide, sulphur hexafluoride, HFCs, and
PFCs - calculated as an average over the
five-year period of 2008-12. National targets
range from 8 reductions for the European Union
and some others to 7 for the US, 6 for Japan,
0 for Russia, and permitted increases of 8 for
Australia and 10 for Iceland."

Headquarters, Washington DC
The IMF failed in its original mission of
promoting stability it has also been no more
successful in the new missions that it has
undertaken, such as building the transition of
countries from communism to a market economy. As
an economic institution dedicated to improving
the economies of developing countries, the IMF
has often incurred more problems than otherwise.

  • Mallam, a fisherman in eastern Niger, started
    saving the small fish, when his local commune in
    Bosso formed a fishermen's cooperative with the
    assistance of the United Nations Capital
    Development Fund (UNCDF) and the UN Development
    Programme (UNDP). The cooperative provides local
    fishermen with training and supplies like boats,
    nets and bait.
  • One growing season later, that has changed.
    "After the first harvest, all our neighbours and
    others in the town started buying our produce
    because it is healthier than the vegetables
    produced with chemicals," says Janpen. Some are
    even considering shifting their own farms away
    from chemicalsWith funding and assistance from
    the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP),
    the Institute is promoting similar sustainable
    environmental projects elsewhere in Thailand.

Artistic Social CommentaryTate Britain Turner
Prize- Langlands and Bell
- acronyms for NGOs are presented as eloquent
digital sequences that multiply, transform and
dissolve into each other.
- the strange language of acronyms becomes a new
form of concrete poetry, as well as an important
political commentary - organizations lose meaning
with a lack of vision, structure, action
  • Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
    committed citizens can change the world.
