"In this Year of Climate Ambition, we are honoured to be supporting the Government of Peru
in their leadership toward COP20-CMP10. The litmus test of success in Lima will be a clear draft of
the universal agreement, a shared determination by all to deliver significant national contributions
to build a low carbon resilient future, initial capitalisation of the Green Climate Fund, and the
mobilisation of a broad coalition of actors turning potential into reality on the ground without

"Lima is a crucial moment to reach a climate agreement in 2015. Together with all actors,
the Presidency of COP20-CMP10 will lead the process and take actions on the principles of
transparency and inclusiveness to build trust and confidence.
We have the strong responsibility to facilitate a complex global negotiation process in a
changing world, so we are focused on achieving realistic goals, building on the mandates and
recognizing the process and actors.
Based on sobering science we have the urgency to raise ambition and seize the opportunity to work
together in Lima to change the world."
H.E. Mr. Manuel Pulgar-Vidal, Minister of the Environment of Peru and President-Designate of COP 20
and CMP 10
