Turkeys Parliament ratified the Kyoto Protocol on 5 February 2009, joining the negotiations on the design of a new agreement the course of 2009 for the post-2012 period, when the emissions reduction commitments under the Protocol expire. Turkey is not included in the agreements Annex B, meaning it does not have mandatory greenhouse gas emissions reductions targets for the 2008-12 period. Following ratification the government is developing a climate change action plan and possible future emissions reduction targets.
