What countries are pushing to make the Copenhagen Accord binding?



  1. 0 Votes

    Environmental groups are welcoming a call by Brazil, South Africa, India and China for a legally binding agreement on climate change by the end of 2010. This comes after the near-failure of a UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, this past December. The conference failed to produce any legal treaties, but “a small group of nations led by the United States eventually drafted a last-minute accord that has been endorsed by 120 governments.” This is still viewed as significantly insufficient, with China failing to agree to any legally binding treaties. China has since joined other nations in calling for a global, binding agreement to force countries to commit to solving climate change problems (voanews)
