COP 15 December 8 Press Briefing

At a press briefing on the second day of the Conference, UNFCCC Executive Secretary Yvo de Boer spoke of a very positive and encouraging start to the conference yesterday, with several clarion calls for urgent action.

Copenhagen will only make a true difference, he said, if it triggers significant and concrete action as soon as the conference ends.

He stressed that negotiators must make optimum use of this first week to prepare the groundwork on the issues of adaptation, mitigation, finance, technology, capacity-building and forests. This involves hammering out solid proposals that can constitute the foundations of an agreed outcome in Copenhagen

On financing, Mr. de Boer said he is confident that Copenhagen will deliver additional money to support action in developing countries, with growing consensus for prompt funding of at least USD 10 billion a year from now until 2012.
