UN Climate Change Conference Issues Copenhagen Accord
Adjust font size:
The UN Climate Change Conference reached a legally non-binding Copenhagen Accord on Saturday.
The accord upheld the principle of "common but differentiated responsibilities" set by the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol, made arrangements for developed countries' compulsory emissions cut and developing countries' voluntary mitigation actions, and included wide consensus on the key issues of long-term global emissions reduction objects, funding and technology support, and transparency.
