Prof. Elizabeth Burleson on the outcome of the Durban climate negotiations:

“The Durban climate negotiations provide a mandate with which all greenhouse-gas emitting countries will commit to a common UN legal regime by 2015. The new Climate Technology Centre and Network is well positioned to enhance environmentally-sound technologies. These developments increase the ability of countries to cooperate to reach Cancun commitments agreed to last year. Energy and ingenuity are core to bringing the Durban agreements to life. While we still struggle to agree on what constitutes a timely and robust response to climate destabilization, innovation is fueling common ground upon which to build multilateral trust.”
