Petersberg Climate Dialogue II

"Rising to the Climate Challenge"

The Petersberg Climate Dialogue II again focussed on linking implementation and negotiation. Once again, Germany was sharing the chair of the Petersberg Climate Dialogue with the president of the next climate change conference – in 2011, South Africa. In 2010 Germany and South Africa launched the International Partnership for Emission Reductions and MRV, thus drawing developed and developing countries closer together on one of the core issues of the negotiations.
