Following the final negotiating session in Bonn, October 19-23, and in the run-up to COP21 in Paris, which is expected to culminate in a new global climate agreement in December, Andrei Marcu offers his assessment of this immensely complicated and important project and its chances to succeed. In his view, the latest version of the text allows all countries to feel ownership and can succeed if sufficient political will can be summoned.

Andrei Marcu is Senior Advisor and Head of the CEPS Carbon Market Forum and Deputy Director of the Energy Climate House. A shorter version of this Commentary also appeared as the editorial in the November issue of CEPS News.
