Lima deal represents a fundamental change in global climate regime 15.12.2014 Guardian: Environment

The agreement removes the longstanding division of the world into developed and developing countries and paves way for a model of unity

NGOs and developing nations alike had hoped the agreement would compel rich countries to include information in their pledges on climate adaptation and other financial help. They had also sought a robust assessment of the pledges’ ...

World climate deal reached, India satisfied (Photo: PTI) Negotiators on Sunday adopted a compromise draft for national pledges to cut global carbon emissions at the marathon UN climate talks here that addressed all of India’s concerns and paved the way for a new ambitious and binding deal to be signed in Paris next year to combat climate change. “The document is approved,” announced the president of the United Nations climate talks meeting, Manuel Pulgar-Vidal, who is also Peru’s environment minister, after hectic negotiations by officials from 194 countries for about two weeks in the Peruvian capital here. “I think this is good, and I think this moves us forward,” Mr Pulgar-Vidal said.
