Copenhagen’s agenda reduced to a nutshell: :

  1. Targets, Timetables and Actions:
    2020 greenhouse gas reductions for developed countries at 25-40% cuts based on 1990 levels and 80% by 2050. Developing countries agree to reduce deforestation, limit emissions and select sustainable futures.
  2. Funding Climate Action:
    A ‘climate finance mechanism’ with $10-$15 billion ‘fast start’ in 2010 to 2012 as well as longer term adaptation and mitigation – including forestry and technology support.
  3. Common Standards:
    Common methods to track emissions, to account for, and report on emission reduction.
  4. Peer Review:
    Countries to measure, report and verify.
  5. Global Climate Agreement:
    Set up a legally binding 2012 agreement, built on these foundations.

That’s it.
