O “Texto Dinamarquês”
Um draft do acordo final de Copenhaga, que está a ser chamado de “Texto Dinamarquês”, e que foi preparado por um grupo de países que incluem o Reino Unido, os EUA e a Dinamarca foi parar ao jornal The Guardian e já provocou reacções negativas dos países em desenvolvimento já que, e segundo este “acordo”, as nações mais ricas terão mais poder (o texto pode ser lido aqui) em futuras negociações:
The UN Copenhagen climate talks are in disarray today after developing countries reacted furiously to leaked documents that show world leaders will next week be asked to sign an agreement that hands more power to rich countries and sidelines the UN’s role in all future climate change negotiations.
[…] The agreement, leaked to the Guardian, is a departure from the Kyoto protocol’s principle that rich nations, which have emitted the bulk of the CO2, should take on firm and binding commitments to reduce greenhouse gases, while poorer nations were not compelled to act. The draft hands effective control of climate change finance to the World Bank; would abandon the Kyoto protocol – the only legally binding treaty that the world has on emissions reductions; and would make any money to help poor countries adapt to climate change dependent on them taking a range of actions.
The document was described last night by one senior diplomat as “a very dangerous document for developing countries. It is a fundamental reworking of the UN balance of obligations. It is to be superimposed without discussion on the talks”. […]
