Main principles for a successful Copenhagen Climate Change Conference

3 December, 2009
Policies and Issues:

Orgalime supports the overall climate change objective of limiting temperature rise to below 2 degrees. We believe that climate change is a global issue which cannot be solved without international resolve and commitment. A new international agreement, fully involving all countries/regions, to continue beyond Kyoto’s 2012 should be given the highest priority.

Targets and milestones are needed for the principal mechanisms to be able to bring about CO2 reduction: Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), nuclear energy, forest management, etc., to demonstrate continuity of policy: this is essential in order to encourage new investments.

Developing countries have specificities which should be recognised by the international community; however developing countries should also put in place low-carbon growth plans, assisted and supported by the developed countries.
