UN members agree deal at Lima climate talks

BBC
Developing countries have accused wealthier nations of failing to take responsibility for climate change

The agreed document calls for:

  • An “ambitious agreement” in 2015 that reflects “differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities” of each nation
  • Developed countries to provide financial support to “vulnerable” developing nations
  • National pledges to be submitted by the first quarter of 2015 by those states “ready to do so”
  • Countries to set targets that go beyond their “current undertaking”
  • The UN climate change body to report back on the national pledges in November 2015
