Doha: The price of Kyoto continuity

Doha has given the Kyoto Protocol ongoing life, but at a high price, with limited impact on emissions seen out to 2020. For now, unilateral action is the best hope.

The recently finished Doha climate conference agreed on a second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol from 2013 to 2020 with quantified emission reduction commitments for Australia, Belarus, the EU and its member states, Kazakhstan, Monaco, Norway, Switzerland and Ukraine.

This second commitment period is a very important step for continuity, particularly for the accounting system that has established over the years – and the clean development mechanism.
