ABSTRACT
In order to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was committed in 1994 and Kyoto Protocol was committed in 1997. In this context, highly developed countries, OECD countries and 37 countries that are in transition to market economy gave "legally binding" commitments to reduce and/or limit greenhouse gas emissions for 2008-2012 period (first commitment period). In the scope of Convention and Kyoto Protocol, Conference of the Parties (COP) is held every year to follow improvements and enhance applications. 2011 Climate Change Conference (COP 17) took place from 28 November to 9 December 2011 in Durban, South Africa. Turkey is represented by a delegation headed by Minister of Development Cevdet Yilmaz. TCMA was represented by Canan Derinöz Gencel, Head of Environmental Issues, First commitment period of Kyoto Protocol ends on 31 December 2012. For this reason, especially since 2009, there were attempts to establish a new system including countries like China, India, USA and Brazil, but there were no conclusions. Thus, COP 17 meetings started in a hopeless atmosphere. However, after days of negotiations, and meetings at ministerial level, following results were obtained on 11 December 2011:
