The United Nations climate change conference (29 November-10 December) must take a significant step towards establishing a comprehensive and legally binding framework for climate action at global level. In Cancún the EU will be pressing for agreement on a balanced set of decisions which would pave the way for reaching a legally binding global framework as soon as possible and also lead to immediate climate action on the ground.
According to Connie Hedegaard, the European Commissioner for Climate Action, "Cancún must deliver progress on substance, and it can, if all Parties show political will".
