UN Climate Talks Collapse Leaving Island Nations Facing Sea Level Rise Indignant

Jun 12th, 2013 | By | Category: General

A vital track of the United Nation (UN) climate talks in Bonn, Germany, has collapsed after nations failed to resolve a dispute over the meeting’s agenda.

Eight days into the two week meeting, a proposed addition by Russia to the agenda of the session dealing with the UN’s decision making process was not accepted. Then, a compromise deal presented to governments in the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) meeting today was rejected by Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.

This means that sensitive discussions on climate compensation, adaptation and finance will not be discussed within the process until the main summit in Warsaw in November.
