The imminent ratification of the Kyoto Protocol on green house gas (GHG) emission reductions will trigger the implementation of this cross-boundary initiative for climate change control. The Kyoto Protocol is arguably the largest environmental cross-boundary and pan-national environmental policy ever initiated. This paper describes key aspects of the protocol, its implementation mechanisms and regulations, and describes management implications and related business opportunities for municipalities, industries and consulting/engineering groups in the water environment arena.
