French and UN officials completed an edit early today of the final draft of the climate deal to be presented to ministers for adoption, conference host France said, after nearly two weeks of tough haggling for a climate rescue pact, reports AFP.
After translation into the UN’s six official languages, the document will be presented to ministers at 11.30 am (1030 GMT), nearly 16 hours after the conference had been scheduled to close.
Negotiators from more than 190 countries in Paris are aiming to create something that’s never been done before: An agreement for all countries to reduce man-made emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases and help the poorest adapt to rising seas, fiercer weather and other impacts of global warming.
