Even though the climate change have a major impact on environment, human life and infrastructure over the world, for a long period little attention was given by world countries to mitigate this climate change and its impacts for a century. But in recent time due to highly increase of world temperature and frequent drought in several parts of the world including developing countries different world countries developed policy and signed different agreement on greenhouse reduction and to minimize the impact of climate change. The main goal of the Kyoto Protocol is to control emissions of the main anthropogenic (human-emitted) greenhouse gases (GHGs) in ways that reflect underlying national differences in GHG emissions, wealth, and capacity to make the reductions. There are different international negotiations and bargaining strategies on Kyoto, Paris agreement in order to reduce impact of climate change. Even though, different convention and agreement have has been signed on negotiations and bargaining strategies on Kyoto protocol agreement. None of these negotiation and agreement did not concrete solution on climate change impacts at global level. Due to this fact, in view of the above statements the review is interested to focus the international negotiations and bargaining strategies on Kyoto, Paris agreement and futures steps. Therefore, the specific objectives of this review paper are: To review the importance of the international negotiations on climate change To highlight policy implication to focus on negotiation and bargaining strategies on Kyoto, Paris agreement and futures step. Now a day’s one of the most challenges of the world is climate change. This challenge highly affect both developing and developed region of the world. Even though largest emitter of the greenhouse gases were developed countries for a long period they did not give attention for climate change. Recently since the issues of climate change is issues of the world, all international organizational and governments responding on climate in many different ways. One of the international responses on climate change is through Paris agreement. There are negotiations among different countries on adaptation and mitigation strategies of climate change.
