Amb. Colin Beck of the Solomon Islands calls for binding targets in video interview

on June 20, 2013

Ambassador Colin Beck of the Solomon Islands told RTCC that the possibility of the new global treaty to be agreed in 2015 being made up of emission reduction pledges set by nations themselves, risked the effectiveness of the process.

“When we take voluntary targets, what that really means is that we are doing nothing,” he said at the recent round of UN negotiations in Bonn.

“The path we are on now is leading us towards an uncertain future. This is where things are and where the negotiations are moving.”
