Climate negotiation crossroads: future success rests on current lessons

This year’s global climate negotiations in Doha are particularly challenging. Parties to the UNFCCC must step out on a new path leading beyond 2020. But to do that they must first resolve unfinished business from the Bali Road Map, including the work of the second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol and the Bali Action Plan for long term cooperative action. Decisions for the post-2020 regime must be guided by climate change science and impacts, the Convention’s principles and provisions and, most importantly, by the lessons learnt under the current regime. There is no need to reinvent the wheel.
