The Climate Regime in Evolution: The Disagreements that Survive the Cancun Agreements

The Climate Regime in Evolution: The Disagreements that Survive the Cancun Agreements

Carbon and Climate Law Review, 30 August 2011

The last few years have witnessed a flurry of diplomatic activity on climate change. In addition to the scheduled inter-governmental negotiations under the auspices of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC),1 further meetings, many at a Ministerial level, have been convened by the G-8, the Major Economies Forum, the UN Secretary General, as well as Denmark and Mexico who served as hosts to the fifteenth and sixteenth Conferences of Parties (COP) to the UNFCCC. These led to outcomes at COP-15 held at Copenhagen, 7–18 December 2009, and COP-16 held at Cancun, 29 November to 10 December 2010.
