Was the December 2014 Lima climate conference successful?

  • Yes because all participating counties agreed to submit national plans for curbing emissions by end of March 2015.
  • Yes because the agreement blurs the former rich world/poor world split in which the rich (essentially Europe) had to lead the way - India and China will need to share more of the burden now.
  • Summary: No hard decisions made but great roadmap and preparatory work for 2015 Paris summit.
