Title: ASIL Insights:The Copenhagen Climate Change Accord
Available From: http://www.asil.org/files/insight100212pdf.pdf
Last Updated: 2010-02-12
Description: The Conference of the Parties (COP) to the Kyoto Protocol , held in Copenhagen in December 2009, had been intended to resolve the issue of what to do after the Protocol�s first commitment period ends in 2012. Daniel Bodansky, the Emily and Ernest Woodruff Professor of International Law at the University of Georgia School of Law, writes, �In the end, the Copenhagen conference resulted only in a political agreement, the Copenhagen Accord, which was negotiated by the leaders of the world's major economies, but was not formally adopted by the conference, leaving its future prospects uncertain.� The author analyzes the provisions of the Accord, and discusses possible future developments in the climate change regime.
