Since the Kyoto Protocol was negotiated, The U.S. has implemented no major policies that would siginificantly reduce its depence on carbon, and has instead pursued measures to maintain supplies of inexpensive fosil fuels.In contrast, leading developing countries have taken their commitments, seriuosly. Not only have they included global warming's potential impacts in their national planning policies and procedures, but the have also set in motion a wide range of policies. At Their most aggressive, these extend to removing subsidies that favor fossil fuel use, quite the opposite of current U.S. effort. This report profile 14 developing countries from Africa,Asia/Pacific Island, and Latin and Central America. At least one large, medium-sized, and small country in each region is profiled to demostrate the range of characteristics of energy use and energy policy in the region. As the Following chapters demonstrate, developing countries have taken important steps to reduce their global warming pollution, and have done so with far fewer technological and capital advantages than the developed nations.
