After Bali: Setting out on the road to Copenhagen

By Yvo de Boer, UNFCCC Executive Secretary

UN Climate Change Conference in Bali last year was historic. There was a great desire of Parties to make progress, huge public awareness and a sense of joint purpose and common ownership of the outcome. With regard to the future, the conference delivered what it was supposed to do: the launch of negotiations to craft a new international climate change agreement by the end of 2009, whilst setting a clear roadmap for these talks. The meeting delivered immediate results which were particularly important for developing countries, not least in the areas of adaptation funding, technology transfer and reducing emissions from deforestation. And the conference established a timetable for negotiations on the new emission targets for industrialized countries under the Kyoto Protocol, along with defining the scope and content of the upcoming review of the Protocol.
