EU proposal in Durban faces opposition

The European climate delegation in Durban is struggling to commit other actors to a binding agreement, reports AFP. Both China and the United States have opposed themselves to such an accord and have put the EU under pressure. Developing countries are equally unhappy with the EU’s position, stating that developed countries should commit more funds and effort to limiting climate change.

The European proposal would entail a commitment by all major greenhouse gas emitters to a binding agreement by 2015 with a subsequent implementation by 2020.

The EU, in return, showed willingness to reduce CO2 further under the current Kyoto protocol. One of the developing countries’ key tenets is that the Kyoto protocol be kept alive.
