ABSTRACT
The Kyoto Protocol is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while allowing Parties to implement trading mechanisms to achieve suchreductions. A compliance regime is necessary for the success of the Protocol. Given the Protocol's complexity and expected participation by non-state actors, any dispute settlement mechanism designed for such a compliance system must be flexible and provide predictability toits participants. This Article draws on existing dispute settlement models to recommend a suitable settlement mechanism. It suggests a three-tiered dispute settlement system combining aspects of an enforceable dispute resolution process, strong sanctions for noncompliance, and opportunities for arbitrating disputes that arise between private entities.
