“Unless we have mandatory targets to cut emissions that are enforceable under international law, we are headed for failure” at next year’s climate summit in Paris, Quamrul Chowdhury, who also acts as lead negotiator for 49 least- developed countries at the UN talks, said in an interview in London yesterday.

Envoys meet in Bonn from March 10 to continue talks on the Paris summit treaty, which is scheduled to come into effect in 2020. Under the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, 37 developed nations undertook to cut emissions in the five years through 2012 by an average of 5 per cent from 1990 levels.
