The Kyoto Protocol obliges industrialised countries to cut their overall greenhouse gas emissions by at least 5 per cent below 1990 levels in the period 2008-2012. Several provisions are laid out to achieve these reductions.

Article 3.3 of the protocol allows countries to get credits for reducing carbon dioxide concentrations through land-use change and forestry activities that are a result of direct human actions. Only afforestation, reforestation and deforestation activities undertaken since 1990 are eligible under this article. Consequent changes produced in the quantity of carbon present in a system should be measured in each commitment period and should be verifiable.
