Climate Change Negotiations – UNFCCC, COP, Other Conventions and Protocols

G77, China mount sharp attack on rich nations

Accuse them of trying to amend the UNFCCC by tying finance to conditionalities in the draft agreement of Paris summit.

  1. The G77+China views this as a deviation from what was agreed at the Climate Change conference held in Durban in 2011.
  2. The mandate at that event was for full implementation of the UNFCCC, and come up with an agreement to deal with climate change beyond 2020.
  3. Two sharp issues raised by the group are on the inclusion of loosely defined text and conditionalities to financing.
  4. The G77 group is also unhappy with the foregrounding of decarbonisation in the draft text.
