United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany

The conference runs from Monday, 2nd August to Friday, 6th August 2010.
Christina Figueres (UNFCCC Executive Secretary) stated that governments can build on progress in five key areas:
  1. they need to resolve what to do with their public pledges to cut emissions
  2. governments seem on track to agree to a comprehensive set of ways and means to allow developing countries to take concrete action
  3. industrialized nations can turn their funding pledges into reality
  4. countries want to see that what they agree with each other is measured, reported and verified in a transparent way
  5. governments agree that pledges need to be captured in a binding manner but they need to decide how to do it
