ABSTRACT
The article introduces the position of Kazakhstan in the Kyoto and post-Kyoto Protocol framework. What inspired the country to sign the Kyoto Protocol are the incentives to lessen greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the country, therefore contributing to the overall world decrease of GHG emissions. The procedure of ratifying the Kyoto Protocol in Kazakhstan took a very long time.
