Klimaforhandlinger i Bonn – løbende opdateret linksamling

14. maj 2012

I dag indledes en ny runde af FNs klimaforhandlinger i Bonn 14.-25. maj 2012. Her skal de spæde spirer fra Durban-aftalen i december stå deres første prøve, om verden vitterligt er på vej mod sin første samlede klimaaftale, som ifølge planerne skulle træde i kraft i 2020 men ligge klar fra 2015. Hvorfor der ikke skal ske noget i disse år er uforståeligt og dybt uforsvarligt – og hvert års tøven kommer til at koste.

Det bliver også denne gang, at en ny runde af Kyoto-aftalen skal fastlægges. Med store lande som USA, Canada og Rusland ude af Kyoto-aftalen kommer anden fase kun til at dække omkring 15% af verdens samlede udledninger. Det har således fuldt så stor betydning som signalpolitik – at der er rige industrilande, som rent faktisk vil gå foran, og som herigennem vil give de virksomheder, som arbejder for at udvikle grøn teknologi og grønne produkter, ordentlige rammebetingelser for at fortsætte deres udviklingsarbejde.

Men dette lille indlæg er først og fremmest tænkt som en løbende linkopsamling. Pressedækningen er forsvindende lille – søgninger på politiken.dk og information.dk viser stort set ingen omtale af de forestående klimaforhandlinger i Bonn. Det handler jo også kun om vores fælles fremtid, og det er der ikke noget nyt i.

Via UNFCCs hjemmeside kan man følge med i de vigtigste forhandlinger i Bonn (se on demand webcast), ligesom præsentationer og forhandlingsdokumenter løbende gøres tilgængelige.

På Twitter finder man løbende opdateringer for eksempel via @UN_ClimateTalks og @CFigueres.
