Warsaw to lay climate deal basics
Warsaw: Poland`s environment minister says his challenge at next month`s climate conference will be to lay foundations for a new global emission cuts deal.
Marcin Korolec told The Associated Press that the United Nations` COP19 conference in Warsaw will require "huge work" in making some 200 participating nations agree on conditions for a deal to be signed in 2015 in Paris.
A major point of contention is how to divide the burden of cuts between industrialised nations and emerging economies. The deal has to be acceptable to major developing nations, like India and China, that are to be obliged to cut their greenhouse gas emissions as well.
A top UN climate official said recently that international leaders are failing in their fight against global warming.
