From Cancun to Durban, State of play of the climate negotiations


7 February 2011



Are we going towards a portfolio of domestic commitments made of voluntary pledges and legallybinding
targets? What could be the legal form of the commitments (“legal differentiation” versus “legal symmetry”)? How will the commitments impact on the global temperature rise? What are the improvements in the MRV structure and what remains to be decided? How to provide a credible verification system within a framework that is likely to incorporate a diversity of commitments? How to address cases of non compliance: an assistance or a penalty-based approach? What is the future
of the Kyoto Protocol?

Please find here the Programme and the Report of the seminar.
