UK supplement: Carbon Matters - Winter 2014
This edition of Carbon Matters was going to press just after the close of the 20th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC in Lima. The task of the conference was to prepare for the Paris COPMOP at the end of next year. In particular, the states represented at the Conference needed to reach agreement on a common framework, with specified categories of required “upfront information” for the intended targets, known as “Intended Nationally Determined Contributions” (“INDCs”), to be submitted by Parties in the first quarter of next year in advance of the Paris COPMOP.
