Slim 20-page negotiating text released ahead of Paris summit


The UN document, drafted by co-chairs Ahmed Djoghlaf and Dan Reifsnyder, sets out which elements will be legally binding and also makes clear decisions to be made before Paris summit.

You can read the full document here.

Legally binding would be a long-term global goal for peaking or phasing out greenhouse gas emissions and also that countries should submit carbon-cutting plans every five years, progressively increasing their efforts. A key concern for poor countries, climate impacts, are acknowledged in the draft legal agreement.
