Bonn Summit Delegate Says, UN Members Likely to Keep Copenhagen Accord

United Nations members are likely to include a “significant portion” of the Copenhagen Accord into a negotiating text that may eventually be used as a legally binding agreement on greenhouse gas restrictions in the next climate summit in Cancun, Mexico, according to Quamrul Chowdhury, lead negotiator for the group of 49 least developed nations at the Bonn climate summit.

The accord was brokered by a small group of nations led by the U.S. and China, Bloomberg reports. Bolivia and Venezuela have expressed opposition to the Copenhagen Accord, which they say will not be able to bring about adequate reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
