Abstract

international treaties and agreements designed to tackle the threat of global warming. Although it includes neither quantitative emissions reduction targets nor firm timeta- bles, the convention articulates many key principles that should guide future action to reduce global emissions of greenhouse gases. In particular, the FCCC acknowledges the historical role played by industrialized countries in the buildup of greenhouse gases and the need for them to take the lead in reducing emissions. Fur- thermore, it commits industrialized coun- tries to provide developing countries with financial and technical assistance so that they can limit the growth of their emissions.' Projections show the energy sectors of developing countries expand- ing rapidly over the next few decades to match the pace of industrialization. This growth will bring with it large increases in emissions of greenhouse gases if nothing is done to dramatically increase the efficiency with which I M P LE M E NTATlO N Combating Global Warming? n December of this year, delegates to the third energy is used and to stimulate the use of of the Parties to the United Nations Frame- '\ renewable energy sources.
