Answer: Article 21 A MONTREAL PROTOCOL:
The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer(a protocol to the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer) is an international treatydesigned to protect theozone layerby phasing out the production of numerous substances believed to be responsible for ozone depletion.
It is believed that if the international agreement is adhered to, the ozone layer is expected to recover by 2050.
The Kyoto Protocol is a protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC or FCCC) that set binding obligations on the industrialised countries to reduce their emissions ofgreenhouse gases.
The Protocol was initially adopted on 11 December 1997 in Kyoto, Japan, and entered into force on 16 February 2005. As of September 2011, 191 states have signed and ratified the protocol.
The only remaining signatory not to have ratified the protocol is the United States.
OtherUnited Nations member states which did not ratify the protocol are Afghanistan, Andorra and South Sudan. In December 2011, Canadawithdrew from the Protocol.
Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants is an international environmentaltreaty, signed in 2001 and effective from May 2004, that aims to eliminate or restrict the production and use of persistent organic pollutants (POPs).
POPs, which are defined as "chemical substances that persist in the environment,bio-accumulate through the food web, and pose a risk of causing adverse effects to human health and the environment".
The Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal, usually known simply as the Basel Convention, is an international treatythat was designed to reduce the movements ofhazardous waste between nations, and specifically to prevent transfer of hazardous waste fromdeveloped to less developed countries (LDCs).
It does not, however, address the movement of radioactive waste. The Convention is also intended to minimize the amount and toxicity of wastes generated, to ensure their environmentally sound management as closely as possible to the source of generation, and to assist LDCs in environmentally sound management of the hazardous and other wastes they generate.
The Bamako Convention (in full: Bamako Convention on the ban on the Import into Africa and the Control of Transboundary Movement and Management of Hazardous Wastes within Africa) is a treaty of African nations prohibiting the import of any hazardous (including radioactive)waste. The Convention was negotiated by twelve nations of the Organization of African Unity atBamako, Mali in January, 1991, and came into force in 1998.
Impetus for the Bamako Convention arose from the failure of the Basel Convention to prohibit trade of hazardous waste to less developed countries(LDCs), and from the realization that many developed nations were exporting toxic wastes to Africa.
The Rotterdam Convention on the Prior Informed Consent Procedure for Certain Hazardous Chemicals and Pesticides in International Trade, more commonly known simply as the Rotterdam Convention, is a multilateral treaty to promote shared responsibilities in relation to importation of hazardous chemicals.
The convention promotes open exchange of information and calls on exporters of hazardous chemicals to use proper labeling, include directions on safe handling, and inform purchasers of any known restrictions or bans. Signatory nations can decide whether to allow or ban the importation of chemicals listed in the treaty, and exporting countries are obliged make sure that producers within their jurisdiction comply.
