|Climate change experts from leading
non-governmental organisations have published their blueprint for a legally
binding Copenhagen agreement on 8 June 2009. This will serve as the benchmark
for governments negotiating a new climate deal this year and shows how
major differences between rich and poor nations can be overcome.
The 140-page "Copenhagen Climate Treaty - Version 1.0", which is now distributed to negotiators from 192 states, took some of the world's most experienced climate NGOs almost a year to write and contains a full legal text covering all the main elements needed to provide the world with a fair and ambitious agreement that keeps climate change impacts below the unacceptable risk levels identified by most scientists.
