Agreement reached against expectations at the Durban climate summit.

December 11, 2011 Climate 

Negotiators agree, after extended negotiations that came within minutes of falling apart, to start work on a new climate deal that would have “legal force” and require both developed and developing countries to cut emissions, terms to be agreed by 2015 and to come into effect from 2020. Christiana Figueres: “I salute the countries who made this agreement. They have all laid aside some cherished objectives of their own to meet a common purpose – a long-term solution to climate change.” But the world is still locked into 4 degrees C as things stand.
