The thirty-second sessions of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Convention subsidiary bodies took place from Monday 31 May to Friday, June 11, 2010. The venue for the meetings was the Hotel Maritim in Bonn, Germany. The progress made during the two weeks opens the way to deliver the full package of operational measures for consideration, and hopefully passage, in CancĂșn in December. The draft document puts forward a range of goals for cutting greenhouse gases, including slashing emissions by as much as 85 percent by 2050 compared with 1990 levels, and includes objectives for climate aid and deforestation.

The next round of talks in Bonn in August will address how to share the burden, where to place priorities and the legal status of the post-2012 treaty. The Cancun climate conference will hopefully produce a new international agreement to continue with the goals of the Kyoto Protocol. The final international meeting to adopt a new treat will be in Johannesburg in December 2011. The Kyoto Protocol expires in 2012. (Terra Daily, 6/11/2010)
