Defying all odds, governments participating in the global climate negotiations at Bali, Indonesia reached agreement on a roadmap towards a global climate change agreement to be completed by the end of 2009, ready to fill the gap when the commitments under the Kyoto Protocol expire in 2012. The contributions in this book examine some of the most difficult and controversial questions that global climate change negotiators face between now and the emergence of a ‘Copenhagen Protocol’ in 2009, and even beyond. Written by authoritative experts in the field, the various chapters are organised around the four principle elements in the Bali Action Plan – mitigation, adaptation, technology and financing – presented from different country, stakeholder and political perspectives.
