The Doha Round stalled Facts
The first week of the conference on climate change and extension of the Kyoto Protocol in Doha ended without making any significant decisions or revolutionary developments. Unfortunately, the country members could not reach consensus on the timing, the permissible values of the emissions, the deadline for implementing the new protocol and a number of other small nuances.
EU countries insist Kyoto-2 worked for eight years, and sees no need to increase the already existing 20-percent rate of emissions for the year 2020 to 30 percent. Small island states more impressed period of 5 years. According to them, this is how developed countries could follow the established conditions.
There are doubts about the fact that the second part of the protocol will work immediately on the first day of January, 2013. This is due to the fact that the process of ratification of the amendments by each participating country has a huge amount of time, which as a result may exceed the length of the second period. Members of the Kyoto Protocol can not in any way decide how to legally receive a temporary supplement to the amendment.
There are lots of technical nuances that require resolution. For example, how to transfer debts on emissions. With countries supporting Kyoto-2 questions should arise, but the states that came out of the agreement, will have some way to fully complete their obligations to the Clean Development Mechanism.
An important issue is the question of funding and transparency of the processes associated with it. The advanced economies have not yet decided whether they will continue to set up a fund and make it funds totaling $ 100 billion for the period from 2013 to 2020. Doha negotiations will continue for a week, but no one is sure entirely what countries can solve all your questions.
