Climate Delegates Differ on Kyoto Extension, Compliance Monitoring

HeadlineDec 01, 2010

The U.N. Climate Change Conference continues in Cancún, Mexico. Differences have already emerged in the opening sessions over extending commitments under the Kyoto Protocol and how to monitor countries’ compliance with pledges to reduce emissions. Bolivian climate negotiator Pablo Solón renewed calls for the establishment of an international climate tribunal.

Pablo Solón: “For us, it’s fundamental that discussions in Cancún tackle the creation of an International Climate Tribunal, because governments that irresponsibly play in a negotiation have to be prone to sanctions because the consequences of a fruitless negotiation will be lives, human lives.”
