Global warming and climate change pose a dire threat to life, demanding urgent global action. The Kyoto Protocol is the United Nations treaty committing signatories to dealing with climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The Clean Development Mechanism, Article 12 of the Protocol, is a complex trade mechanism which is unique in its promotion of sustainable development. It gives rich and poor countries the opportunity to combine forces through projects in the developing world.Climate Change is a non-technical account of what inspires people to transform the dry language of this international climate change treaty into measurable improvements in people s lives. SouthSouthNorth is piloting Clean Development Mechanism projects that reduce emission of greenhouse gases through sustainable development in four countries (Brazil, Bangladesh, Indonesia and South Africa). These projects shows how the elegant creativity of science merges with the complexities of politics and human behavior. These stories come to life through a kaleidoscope of color photographs and children s artworks."
