Workshop on a Framework for Various Approaches

On May 19, a workshop organised by the UNFCCC under the AWG-LCA track was held at Bonn. The workshop was mandated by the UNFCCC at Durban last year in order to better understand the multiple approaches countries took towards achieving their mitigation targets. The purpose of this was to explore the concept of a framework through which these approaches could be recognized by the UNFCCC and counted towards national pledges.

Bangkok starts on a despondent note

“Gap” in mitigation targets and period leaves UN hapless

Delhi: The Climate talks in Bangkok have started on a rather despondent note with the UN Climate Chief Christiana Figueres reflecting serious despair in her statements about the future of GHG emission mitigation across the globe. Not only did she accept a possible gap between Kyoto Protocol and any future mitigation mechanism (either an extension of Kyoto or a new mechanism), she sounded weary about the voluntary mitigation targets that countries had put forth at the Cancun climate talks last year December.
