Tianjin ChinaOctober 9 2010: On the final day of the Tianjin meeting, UNFCCC Executive Secretary, Christiana Figueres, and Mexican Foreign Minister, Patricia Espinosa, gave a joint press conference, where they stated that governments have made progress in defining what can be achieved at the UN Climate Change Conference in Cancún.

Ms Figueres pointed out the critical importance of “turning dry texts into a set of keys that unlock a new level of climate action – among rich and poor, business and consumers, governments and citizens.” Minister Espinosa said that “the outcomes of this year’s conferences can truly be the start of a new era of cooperative global climate action.” She added that Cancun can and should be a very significant step forward.

October 5 2010: Speaking to the media on the opening day of the Tianjin meeting, UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres said that “Governments have restored their own trust in the process, but they must ensure that the rest of the world believes in a future of ever increasing government commitment to combat climate change.”

Acknowledging that political disagreements exist, she said  governments seem ready to discuss difficult issues and can break those deadlocks and bridge their differences: “Governments need to agree on what is doable in Cancun and how it will be achievable in a politically balanced manner.” Source: UNFCCC

    Climate talks in Tianjin produce ‘concrete’ results: UNFCCC

    The fourth round of UN climate talks this year, which was concluded in Tianjin on Saturday, has produced some “concrete” results, said UN climate chief Christiana Figueres. Negotiators have produced a draft decision text that will be submitted to the Cancun Conference, scheduled for Nov 29 to Dec 10 this year in Mexico, which is a very concrete result, said Figueres, executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), at a press conference. They have addressed “what is doable in Cancun and what will be left after Cancun,” she said.

    Negotiators also talked about key operational elements of finance, technology and capacity building as well as the future of the Kyoto Protocol, she added. The meeting, held in north China’s Tianjin Municipality from Oct 4 to 9, is the final one before the Cancun Conference and the first time that such a formal meeting of its kind has been convened in China.

    In the past week, negotiators have not yet come to an agreement on how to allocate the 30-billion-U.S. dollar “fast start fund”, which will be used to support developing countries, but a final result will be seen in Cancun, Figueres said. Negotiators have come much closer to working out a new fund of long-term finance to cope with climate changes and they will discuss the details in Cancun, she said.

    Less progress had been made in discussions of the continuation of Kyoto Protocol in Tianjin, she said, but expressed confidence that the issue would make progress at Cancun. “Generally speaking, the outcome of the Tianjin meeting has met with our original expectation,” said Su Wei, China’s chief climate change negotiator, in an interview with Xinhua on Saturday.

    The talks in the past five days have made progress to close the difference and improve common understanding among parties, he said. “Everybody has been working hard to work out the balanced outcome at the meeting.” Through the talks, several problems had been identified and understandings improved, which will lay the foundations for the next step of negotiations, he said.

    Climate talks marred by bickering, progress on finance

    China hit back on Saturday at U.S. claims it was shirking in the fight against climate change, likening the criticisms to a mythic pig preening itself. Frustration between the world’s two top carbon polluters overshadowed week-long U.N. talks seeking progress on the shape of a new climate pact, with negotiators making some progress on financing but failing to dispel fears the process could end in deadlock. Su Wei, a senior Chinese climate change negotiator, swiped at comments from top U.S. climate envoy Todd Stern as the climate change talks drew to a close in the north Chinese city of Tianjin

    China and US blame each other in climate stand-off

    The United States and China clashed on the final day of climate change talks on Saturday, accusing each other of blocking progress ahead of a major summit next month on global warming. The world’s two biggest greenhouse gas polluters sparred throughout the six-day United Nations talks in China, triggering anger from environmentalists who said countries were acting in self-interest and not to save the planet.

    US climate envoy Jonathan Pershing warned progress at the UN’s annual climate summit in Cancun, Mexico, was in jeopardy because of China’s refusal to commit to curbing greenhouse gases. “We have made some very modest progress. But unfortunately it’s been quite limited,” Pershing said of the talks in the northern Chinese city of Tianjin.

    Deforestation deal offers rare hope in climate change fight

    An ambitious plan to fight climate change by paying states to preserve their forests could be a rare bright spot at next month’s UN climate talks — but many questions remain unresolved. The REDD+ mechanism — Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation — offers financial compensation to countries such as Indonesia, Brazil and Congo River basin states if they protect vital tropical forests.

    Deforestation accounts for nearly 20 percent of greenhouse gas emissions — more than the global transportation sector and second only to the energy sector — and destroys the earth’s precious pollution-absorbing carbon sinks. In the Chinese city of Tianjin, where negotiators are trying this week to break a stalemate in United Nations talks for a global warming deal before next month’s summit in Mexico, REDD+ has emerged as a potential rallying point.
