Abstract

After months of incremental progress on negotiating text for the United Nations summit on climate change in Copenhagen in December, recent talks in Bangkok unearthed a deal breaker — the fate of the Kyoto Protocol. Most developed countries are advocating a single integrated instrument at Copenhagen to replace the Kyoto Protocol. This article explores the anatomy of the G-77/China's resistance to such a new instrument, and argues that this instrument is likely, given emerging political realities, to take a fundamentally different character, and burden-sharing arrangement, from that of the Kyoto Protocol.
