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

Paris climate talks go down to the wire

According to Environment Minister, the success of the Paris conference now depends on the spirit of accommodation and flexibility of the West.

  1. India is taking the line that developed countries are rigid, leaving little flexibility for alternative solutions.
  2. The world’s top greenhouse gas emitter, China, remains firm on differentiation.
  3. In COP21, India faces criticism for trying to weaken the legal rigour of a 5-year review mechanism and engaging in brinkmanship.
  4. In reservations on periodic review of the INDCs, civil society organisations agree that the proposal remains vague on whether it includes finance and technology transfer.
