Bangkok climate talks make concrete progress on key issues ahead of Doha

A week of informal climate talks in Bangkok ended with concrete progress on key issues across all three negotiating groups, setting a firmer base for decisions that will be made at the UN Climate Change Conference this year, in Doha. “The investment in Bangkok has paid off. Government negotiators have pushed forward key issues further than many had expected and raised the prospects for a next successful step in Doha,” said Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). http://unfccc.int/files/press/press_releases_advisories/application/pdf/20120905_pr_awg-bkk_close.pdf
