Formula for hope at Copenhagen ?

Here's what BASIC countries have proposed to the Americans:

- National communication once in two years based on revised format

- Supported action will have international MRV

- Unsupported action domestic MRV based on international guidelines

- Domestic MRV will be provided to UNFCC for information. Americans want the word consultation to be used instead.

Apparently there is agreement on first three but not on fourth and BASIC countries are clear no intrusive review possible.

That would then set the stage for negotiations on a binding deal at Bonn or Mexico, venues for the next stage of climate talks. 10 years ago
