Connie's on side

At an informal meeting this afternoon Connie Hedegaard, the President of the COP and Denmark's Climate Change Minister, emphasised the need to find innovative new sources of climate finance and specifically mentioned the billions of dollars that could be mobilised by bringing international shipping and aviation emissions into the agreement. Earlier in the day she proposed that bunkers, along with six other issues that require further high level negotiation, should be dealt with by special working groups chaired by pairs of ministers, one from the developed and one from the developing world.
