UN Conference on Climate Change


The fifteenth United Nations Conference on Climate Change has been concluded.

The accord coming out of the conference, however, falls well short of a legally-binding treaty, and includes no emissions reduction targets and no time-line for concluding a legally-binding deal. Another round of climate talks is scheduled for November 2010 in Mexico, where negotiators will continue to work towards a treaty to replace the Kyoto Protocol.

SAIIA has done significant work on a broad range of issues related to climate change, including the politics of climate change, trade and climate change, and the governance of Africa’s resources. Some of this work is available for download below.
