Durban Outcome: Kyoto Protocol to Continue !?

The 17th Conference of Parties (CoP) held in Durban of South Africa in December 2011 ends up with many countries (both developed, developing and less developed countries) agreeing to extend Kyoto Protocol into a second commitment period.

Under the “Durban Platform for Enhanced Action”, an ad-hoc working group has been formed and tasked to come up with a legal instrument or agreed outcome with legal force by 2015. However, the extension and transition process is up to now filled with uncertainties and nobody can predict what will happen next.

So what happens now? Details to be revealed…
