International Climate Change: A Negotiations Side-by-Side
DIANE Publishing, May 1, 2011 - 20 pages
Parties to the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) gather for their 16th annual meeting in 2010. Several formal and informal negotiating sessions in 2010, intended to resuscitate the global negotiations to address climate change beyond the year 2012, have followed the 2009 meeting in Copenhagen, with which many countries and observers were disappointed. Under the UNFCCC, 194 gov'ts, including the U.S., have taken on obligations to address climate change through enhanced scientific and technological cooperation, assessment of sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals, and policies and measures to mitigate GHG and to promote adaptation to climate changes. This is a print on demand report.
