Factors underpinning future action [electronic resource]
Electronic version available
The objective of this report is to provide an analytical basis to underpin discussions on future commitments to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at the end of the first Kyoto Protocol commitment period (i.e. post-2012). The report is an update of the first version published 23 October 2006. The future development of the international climate regime is discussed in various fora: The Parties to the UNFCCC discuss these issues in a “dialogue” ending 2007. The Parties to the Kyoto Protocol have initiated the discussion on new commitments for Annex I countries in an “Ad-hoc Working Group (AWG)”. Outside of the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol several official fora deal with the issue at the high political level (e.g. Gleneagles dialogue as a follow-up of the G8 process, the Asia Pacific Partnership on Development and Climate) or at a conceptual level (e.g. CCAP dialogue on future action, Basic Project).
