European Commission Releases Proposals for “Comprehensive Climate Change Agreement in Copenhagen”
The European Commission has released a communication entitled “Towards a comprehensive climate change agreement in Copenhagen,” which sets out proposals to achieve the EU’s objective to ensure that global average temperature does not increase more than 2°C above pre-industrial levels.
It addresses three key challenges:
- targets by developed countries and appropriate actions by developing countries;
- the need to address the financing of actions by developing countries (both to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change);
- and the need to build an effective global carbon market.
