Geography Project Group 3“Copenhagen Accord fails to minimize global warming.”
International Q&A !!!
~ All about The Copenhagen Accord
Kyoto Protocol : Less Developed Countries did not need to reduce CO2 emission.
More Developed Countries thought that it was unfair to them as LDCs did contributed to the increased greenhouse gases.
the Copenhagen Summit (7.12.2009-18.12.2009) was held to discuss a fairer accord concerning the coping with the global climate change
A. the increase in global temperature should be below 2 degree Celcius and greenhouse gas concentration in the atmosphere should be stabilized
B. Less Developed Countries should speed up their economic development by any means as soon as possible
X- File !
1) different countries with different capabilities shouldcooperate together to cope with the climate change
2) financial aid should be provided to Less Developed Countries LDCs could enjoy technology mechanism to reduce CO2 emission
3) Countries should cooperate to reduce global emission
> 110 countries
Topic: Discuss the viewpoints of MDCs and LDCs towards the Copenhagen Accord
agreed with the importance and need of
USD $30billion will be provided between 2010–2012
- prioritized for the most vulnerable developed countries
-help Less Developed Countries which are poorer to cope with climate change to minimize the global warming
-More Developed countries would mobilize jointly USD 100billion by2020
- most of the money would go to the Copenhagen Green Climate Fund
-for reducing emissions which are due to deforestation and forest degradation
-for supporting the transfer and development of technology in Less Developed Countries
Less Developed countries might be more capable of reducing emissions
1)The Long-term adaptation funds
2)The measure of asking countries to summit emission targets
the amount may be very small that it could not help much in minimizing global warming
countries may actually failed to reduce Co2 emission failed to minimize global warming
Self-interest of different countries:
~industries are their main economic pillars
-cutting Co2 emission suffer from economic losses
e.g. outputs of factories will drop GDP drops
worsen national economy
~cutting CO2 emission
-government: order power station to generate fewer electricity
-citizens: need to reduce the use of electrical appliances
Citizens do not do much that helps minimizing global warming
