Climate Change Negotiations: An Asian Stir Fry of Options

Negotiators in Bali are unlikely to get Asian developing countries to agree to binding greenhouse emissions targets for now in the post-Kyoto climate change agreement, a report released on 6 December, 2007 by think tanks Civic Exchange and the Singapore Institute for International Affairs argues. The report, “Climate Change Negotiations: An Asian Stir Fry of Options”, calls upon negotiators to focus on aligning the interests of developing countries to achieve energy security and sustainable development through energy efficiency and a low-carbon future instead.
