Climate negotiations reveal new alliances in the Global South

Traditionally, countries have been divided into two categories: developing countries were grouped together under “Annex 1” and developed countries, judged responsible for climate change to a greater extent, were grouped under “Annex 2”. But it became clear at the COP 20 in Lima last December that the line between the two groups has become hazy. The principle of “common but differentiated responsibilities”, established in the final text of the COP 20, allows for differences in expectations between developed and developing countries in terms of climate commitments, without resorting to the two strictly defined groups of the Kyoto Protocol.
