UNFCCC Co-Chairs Issue New Document to Help Governments in Negotiations Toward Paris

The co-chairs of the UN negotiating body that will reach a universal climate change agreement in Paris have issued a tool to help governments in their negotiations ahead of the COP21.

UNFCCC Co-chairs Ahmed Doghlaf and Daniel Reifsnyder have released a consolidated version of the formal “Geneva” negotiating text to help governments in the negotiations toward the COP21 in Paris.
