The COP/CPM President invited Parties, while they work inside each of the work streams, to also consider the progress being made toward ambition and balance across the streams, and to come to the next Ministerial stocktaking plenary this evening ready to give a sense of the ambition and balance across the streams. In Doha, governments are expected to usher in a renewed commitment under the Kyoto Protocol, move the broad infrastructure of support they have been building for action in the developing world into firm implementation, and decide how to resolve policy issues that remain outstanding under the UN Climate Change Convention.

00:00:51 SOUNDBITE (English) Matthias GROOTE (S&D, DE) Chairman EP Delegation “It could be a small step forward in the right direction, and we have several negotiations on financing, on the Dublin platform, on KP (Kyoto Protocol 2). And it ‘s really a small step forward, in the right direction. And we hope that we have an agreement for 2015, a legal binning agreement, for the period after 2015. This is very important, and there is hope I must say”. 00:00:34
00:01:25 SOUNDBITE (English) Matthias GROOTE (S&D, DE) Chairman EP DelegationThere are different opinions and different interests, that is totally clear. We know it from the European Union, it is sometimes really hard to find a compromise with 27 member states. And than, here at the United Nations level, we have 194 different states. So it’ s harder to negotiate here , it’s totally clear. But they are negotiating, and this is good. It’s a good sign. It’s really I hope a small step forward and I hope that finally we have a good text and a good outcome. 00:00:40
