2015 COP Report: Bulding up for Paris

2015 is a crucial year for climate negotiations. The current agreement –the Kyoto Protocol – is in its final commitment period (2013-2020) and this year marks the deadline for world leaders to reach a new agreement. As the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) states this agreement could be in the form a of “a protocol, another legal instrument or an agreed outcome with legal force under the Convention applicable to all Parties”, which will enter into force post-2020 in order to keep global warming below 2°C.

This report was written as part of the mandate of the Federation of Young European Greens’ (FYEG) Delegation to COP 21; the report’s aims are threefold:

  • to provide an introduction to the main aspects of the climate negotiations within the framework of the UNFCCC
  • to introduce different stakeholders and their state of play within the negotiations
  • to summarise the stand of negotiations before COP21

We hope you will enjoy it.
