India’ statement on equity
We have stressed the importance of the developed country Parties meeting their commitments under the Convention in the pre-2020 period to bridge the ambition gap. If they do not meet their commitments in the pre–2020 period, then equity in the post–2020 period will be seriously affected.
Russia et al – victim or victimizer?
Of the three bodies gathering at Bonn, two—SBSTA and ADP— have successfully adopted their agenda for the next two weeks. The SBI, however, is yet to. The reason? Russia and its brothers — Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan.
Whats on the table?
Between June 3 and 14, the latest round of climate negotiations will take place at Bonn, Germany. Three bodies that carry out the work of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change are meeting to negotiate on various issues. Following its first meeting in Bonn less than a month ago, ADP-2 will resume its work along with the regular annual session of SBI and SBSTA (SB38).
