EU's chief negotiator sees Durban deal as possible

A 2020 roadmap to a second Kyoto-style climate pact will need to be based on a timeline led by science, and on action to cut CO2 emissions long before then, the EU’s chief climate negotiator, Artur Runge-Metzger, has told EurActiv in an exclusive interview. But he insisted that there was no ‘Plan B’.

“We are hopeful that there will be an outcome and in terms of what we have been hearing and seeing in the last few weeks, we believe that a deal is possible,” Runge-Metzger said evenly, over a crackling phone line from Durban.

The idea of locking the world into a process that will eventually deliver binding greenhouse gas emissions cuts has snowballed, as hopes of agreeing a comprehensive accord at the Durban Climate Change Summit, which began on 28 November, have melted.
