Negotiations Suspended

The Africa group walked out of the negotiations this-morning in solidarity as it became increasingly clear that developed countries’ commitment to the Kyoto Protocol was limited.   Connie Hedergard, Danish Environment Minister, gave a frank account of expectations for a legally-binding, making such an agreement unlikely.  “The outcome of the Copenhagen Process will be a traditional COP decision, as has been the case for the last 14 years,” she said.  Since this-morning, the EU has recommitted to Kyoto and we are inside the plenary with expectations that negotiations will resume shortly.
