The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants is a global treaty to protect human health and the environment from chemicals that remain intact in the environment for a long time, spread geographically, accumulate in the fat tissues of humans and animals and have adverse effects on human health or the environment. The Kyoto Protocol is an international agreement within the framework of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which commits its parties to setting internationally binding emission reduction targets. Recognising that developed countries are the main culprits for the high levels of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere, due to more than 150 years of industrial activity, the protocol imposes a greater burden on developed countries, based on the principle of “common but differentiated responsibilities”. The Kyoto Protocol was adopted on 11 December 1997 in Kyoto, Japan, and came into force on 16 February 2005. The detailed rules for the implementation of the protocol were adopted at COP 7 in Marrakech (Morocco) in 2001 and are called the “Marrakech Agreements”. The first period of engagement began in 2008 and ended in 2012 in Canada with the main objective of the Antarctic Treaty, “to ensure, in the interests of all humanity, that Antarctica is forever used exclusively for peaceful purposes and does not become the theatre or object of international discord.” To this end, it prohibits military activities, except to support science; banning nuclear explosions and nuclear waste management; Promotes scientific research and data exchange and keeps all land claims in the roof. The contract applies to the area south of 60 degrees south, including all ice shelves and islands. Antarctica currently has no permanent population and therefore there is no citizenship and government. Staff present at any given time in Antarctica are almost always citizens or nationals of a certain sovereignty outside Antarctica, for lack of Antarctic sovereignty. The majority of Antarctica is claimed by one or more countries, but most countries do not explicitly acknowledge these claims.
The continental zone, located between 90 degrees to the west and 150 degrees to the west, is the only major land on earth not claimed by any country.  Until 2015, the interior of the Norwegian sector, the extent of which had never been officially defined, was considered unclaimed. This year, Norway formally claimed the area between its queen Maud Land and the South Pole.  The Madrid Protocol came into force on 14 January 1998, after all States that were advisory parties had tabled instruments for ratification, acceptance, approval or accession on 4 October 1991. In the meantime, each contracting party had specific national requirements that had to be met before the instruments were filed. Schedule V of the protocol came into effect on May 24, 2002. Appendix VI of the protocol was finalized in June 2005 and will enter into force as soon as it has been formally adopted by all States that were advisory parties at the time of its implementation. IccPR encompasses all traditional human rights, such as the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution (1789/1791) and the French Declaration of Human and Citizen Rights (1789).
However, in perfect harmony with its brotherly instrument, Part I begins with the right to self-determination, which is considered the cornerstone of all human rights (Article 1).
