Chapter Summary

Two mandates and three international climate negotiation tracks have been undertaken simultaneously since the Durban Conference. This negotiation structure reflects the complex dynamic of negotiations in the climate change arena. Developed countries intend to conclude the two-track negotiation under the Bali Mandate and have been proactively promoting negotiations utilizing the single platform model of the Durban Platform. Important issues such as agenda (deciding the chairperson of various working groups, negotiation a time frame for the Durban Platform), principles of the new agreement, legal forms, frameworks and a roadmap of the Durban Platform will be of primary concern to interested parties during the Doha Conference. Under the Durban Platform, China will face greater international pressure to reduce its GHG emissions. Due to China's rapid economic development, the international community has increasingly higher expectations of China, asking it to assume more responsibility in addressing climate change.
