Pat Finnegan, Director of Grian, explores the possibility of a legally binding deal. He sasys agreement on REDD+ and adaptation are looking good for Cancun, but he wouldn’t rule aout agreement on mitigation. He believes that China and the US could be showing some convergence, which he says is a good thing as these two nations are “the spine of the agreement”. He ends on discussing the future of the Kyoto Protocol, suggesting the alternative is making the second commitment period a three-year process.
