عنوان مقاله [English]
One of the Environmental Issues that concerns the International Community is the problem of the Climate Change. Increases in greenhouse gases concentration in atmosphere resulting from human intervention in nature has increased Global temperature gradually. to combat against this phenomenon, the International Community has tried to ratify the United Nations Framework Convention on the Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol and held several Conferences and Meetings in order to respond against the Climate Change. In this article I have tried to describe legal practices of the International Community regarding to the Climate Change by using the analytical – descriptive method for the time periods 1972-2011. For this purpose I have used International legal instruments relating to the Environment, as data.
Results show that; although efforts of the International Community toward combat against Climate Change have been notable and widespread, it seems that more practical and effective steps must be taken especially by industrialized countries. It seems that cooperation of the industrialized countries have an important role in resolving of this crisis.
