Durban, South Africa- 2011
Lots of finalization
-Durban marked a historic milestone in the change of China’s position.
- Their views of only concentrating on the west changed in Durban,
when china announced to the media 5 conditions under which they will
accept a legally binding treaty.
- In Chinese culture, that was their way to break the news while
ensuring something in return: IE a negotiating tactic. Regardless, the
signal that they where willing to adopt legally binding principles was
huge news, and was great news.
-China’s turn towards a global treaty= “this could be the big break
through”
-India most hard-line among BASICS: just as China made positive
concessions India took the opposite route.
-India would give products to rest of the world, while keeping
international property rights.
-Western countries have taken so many concessions to shoulder the
burden to developing countries, but up until Copenhagen there was
absolutely nothing done in return.
- Russians where stepping on eggs (western countries where very gentle) , as fear of
developing countries choosing to leave at anytime was a possibility.
Durban Outcomes
Canada is leaving the Kyoto protocol: right at the time that China is starting to join
in. replacing the black sheep. Replaces focus on developing world back to the
Western world.
Canadian move was interpreted widely as an attack on the UN negotiations
themselves: just as the UN makes huge headway with China ‘the big breakthrough’
Canada pulling out of Kyoto at this time was more than a domestic decision, and
more of a sabotage on the UN negotiations as a whole.
Regardless of Canada’s potential domestic intentions, the world sees this as an
attack on multilateralism and international negotiations.
