| Country positions
Fiji (on behalf of G77 and China)
Work under ADP is under the Convention and its principles. It must not lead to the reinterpretation of the Convention. We need a balanced, ambitious, fair and equitable outcome under the Convention, one that strengthens the multilateral rule based regime
We must close mitigation gap. Under work-stream I, we welcome the workshops and roundtables and under work-stream II, raising ambition is necessary and we must also focus on actions that offer real opportunity in the short-term, phase out of HFCs for instance.
Australia (On behalf of the Umbrella group)
We need global regime that fosters national action. We have had useful conceptual discussions in the past, and now we need to deliver and need more focused discussions. We need an agreement that is applicable to all the parties.
Switzerland (on behalf of the Environment Integrity Group)
By 2015, we must adopt a legally binding agreement. We call for legally binding commitments under the same rules—CBDR and RC and equity. That is the key. We also need to close the ambition gap and increase action. For this we must look both within and outside the Convention.
Swaziland (on behalf of the African group)
Our concern is there is a gap in finance and adaptation. We reiterate that all principles of the Convention must apply in the new deal and that this is no renegotiation of the Convention or its Annexes. We need confidence building measures and providing incremental finance will be one such measure
Nauru (on behalf of AOSIS)
The time to act is rapidly slipping away. There is no other formal process to address climate other than this multilateral process. Failure means death for us.
Nepal (on behalf of LDCs)
Under work-stream I, we need to define the structure and scope of the new deal. We must minimize impact and loss and damage. Adaptation is a very important issue for us. In the long run, mitigation will be the best form of adaptation; otherwise adaptation requirements will far exceed all support anyone can give.
We are on the brink of new negotiations. Look at issues and linkages. CBDR and RC is a principle for action, not inaction. Combined action is the only hope.
Nicaragua (on behalf of LMDC)
Many people in developing countries survive on less than what each cow receives in subsidies each day. This is the extent of inequity in the world.
Egypt (on behalf of Arab group)
Developing countries have a right to sustainable development and eradicate poverty. Let us not reinterpret the Convention. The outcome should not be mitigation centric; it must contain all aspects emphasized since 2005. We also call on all sides to desist unilateral trade measures.
India (on behalf of the BASIC group)
ADP must take the Bali roadmap ahead. ADP is not to renegotiate, rewrite or reinterpret the Convention. Both work-streams are under the Convention, in particular equity and CBDR and RC. Developed countries must take the lead in finance, technology, capacity-building and support developing countries.
Work of the ADP should be under the Convention. Any deviation from the Convention will be counter-productive
