Your daily guide to the COP16 #2
What’s happened in the negotiations?
Japan strikes low
At the opening plenary of the Kyoto protocol negotiations, Japan said it will never accept a second commitment of the Kyoto Protocol and that it will not inscribe its pledges in the Kyoto protocol under any circumstances. At the same time, USA is very unlikely to agree to any legally binding commitments under the Long-term Cooperative Action and if Japan has its way, there will not be a second commitment period of the Kyoto protocol either.
The majority of parties have that said they want a legally binding outcome and Japan should honour its legally binding obligations under the Kyoto protocol and agree a second commitment period.
