climate change negotiating tracks

Definition

Negotiating tracks discussed on the conference of the parties that lead to binding agreements in how to deal with current climate change. The UNFCCC itself has two major negotiation tracks, the AWG-KP, established at COP11 in Montreal to discuss future commitments for developed countries (under the Kyoto Protocol in particular) and the AWG-LCA established at COP 13 in Bali to look at a range of commitments from all parties to the Convention.
