WWF statement on week one of COP21 negotiations
“It’s going to be quite a sprint for ministers to secure a strong deal by Friday. The French COP Presidency now has the responsibility to take us to the finish line. The draft negotiating text, while more clear in terms of options, still reflects most of the divergences amongst countries. This will require immense skill on the part of the French Presidency and absolute cooperation between governments to mediate these differences.
“We’re hoping that in the rush to the end, Ministers do not trade ambition for expediency, and remain true to the science.”
