“ANNEX TO THE CONCLUSIONS

THE EU COMMITMENTS ON POLICY COHERENCE FOR DEVELOPMENT...

...iii. Climate Change: The EU recognizes that one of the greatest environmental and development challenges in the twenty-first century is that of mitigation and adapting to climate change, and that lasting progress in achieving the MDG’s will be enhanced by the success of the international community in implementing the Kyoto Protocol and reinvigorating the international negotiations to ensure a post 2012 arrangement in the context of the UN climate change process. In this context the EU reconfirms its commitment to the Kyoto Protocol and its determination to develop a medium and long-term EU-strategy to combat climate change, consistent with meeting the 2 degree objective as outlined in the European Council’s conclusions of the 23rd of March 2005.”
