Copenhagen Legal Options & Equity
The Aprodev Climate Change Working Group launched the report "Copenhagen Legal Options & Equity" on November 5 at the UN Climate talks in Barcelona , the final round of negotiations before COP 15 in December. Read the press release.
The report analyses different proposals for what type of climate change agreement should be agreed in Copenhagen, based on how well the different options respect the right to development of poor countries, how they provide for ambitious emission reductions from developed countries and recognize developed countries' historical responsibility for climate change.
Some questions the report raises include: How can governments best be held accountable if they do not live up to their promises? What are the the political risks of replacing Kyoto Protocol with a new treaty, as proposed by the EU - and what are the consequences for developing countries?
The report draws the conclusion that the Kyoto Protocol needs to be extended and improved - not replaced. Building a new treaty from scratch would not only put equity elements of the Kyoto Protocol at risk - it could also delay action, lower the global level of ambition and lead to continued negotiations for years to come. The climate and the world's poor and vulnerable cannot afford to wait any longer.
