It has been more than 10 years since Malaysia ratified the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and developments since then have been encouraging, both locally and globally. Foremost is the ratification of the Kyoto Protocaol by Russia in 2004, which allowed for it to enter into forece on 16 February this year.
