Are there different emissions standards for developing nations?

    Yes, although there is still efforts to mitigate emissions in developing nations, the UN states that developed countries are taking on the burden of reducing greenhouse gases. The more economically viable nations are in a greater position to reduce emissions, and currently, emissions are relatively low in many developing countries anyways (but yet, are expected to increase).

    Many on the more environmental side of things feel that the standards should be the same throughout the world, and that economic development should not proceed at the risk of the environment. One of the reasons that the standards are lower for developing countries is to allow them to improve their living standards, but there are still many organizations that are seeking sustainable economic development while preserving the environment.
