Instead of fulfilling their obligations, however, they promoted the so-called “Copenhagen Agreement” to kill the Kyoto Protocol and dilute its historical responsibility.

Why should the “Copenhagen Agreement” mean the end of the Kyoto Protocol?  What should be the commitments of developing countries to the reduction of greenhouses gases in the short and medium term? How should we perfect and improve the Kyoto Protocol so that it might accompilsh its purpose?

This objective of this working group is to analyze how the Copenhagen Accord affects the Kyoto Protocol and to put forth a proposal for the reduction of greenhouses gases by developed countries in accordance with the Kyoto Protocol.

Objectives of the group in terms of debate and product

  • Analyze the arguments in the Copenhagen Accord that threaten the continuity of the Kyoto Protocol and the mandatory commitments of GHG emissions reduction agreed by the developed countries.
  • Elaborate a proposal of the necessary commitments to be adopted and fulfilled by the developed countries in the Kyoto Protocol Framework, in order to establish balance in the climate system of the planet.

Main issues to be discussed by the group

  • Which are the main contradictory elements between the Kyoto Protocol and the Copenhaguen Accord regarding the GHG reduction commitments?
  • Why is it necessary to maintain the Kyoto Protocol in the ongoing circumstances?
  • Which should be the GHG emissions reduction goals in developed countries for the next period in the Kyoto Protocol?
