Vijai Sharma

India’s climate change negotiator, Vijai Sharma, discusses the imperative to ensure the two-track process on long-term cooperative action runs “hand in hand” with the second commitment period. As the end of the first commitment period approaches, he says it’s important there isn’t a gap. He emphasises that the feeling among the negotiators is that the Protocol and its supporting framework are sound and says that they need to maintain balance both between technology, finance and mitigation, and within the Protocol process.
