Briefing Paper

2013 Climate Summit: An Island of Incremental Steps in an Ocean of Low Ambition

The need to construct climate policy beyond UNFCCC to keep ambitious 2015 agreement within reach

Cover Analysis COP 19

The 19th Conference of the Parties (COP 19) to the United Nations Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) held in Warsaw from November 11 to 23 resulted in decisions that provide the minimum needed at this point on the way to the new global climate agreement, but leave many central questions unanswered. A lack of ambition and urgency displayed by most major Parties set the tone for the conference and prevented any large breakthrough on short-term climate change mitigation ambition, on finance or on the shape of the new agreement. Germanwatch provides its comments on the conference outcomes and depicts major elements to regain upper hand for climate policy in 2014.
