In January 1998, Toronto-based Environics International conducted a special survey focussed on the Third Conference of Parties (COP-3) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UN FCCC) which concluded in Kyoto, Japan, in December 1997. The survey involved 152 experts from across 30, mostly Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), nations in Western Europe, North America and other regions of the world. Experts from the voluntary sector expressed negative views in rating the outcome of the Kyoto conference -- contrast to the views of those constituting corporate government and North American experts.
