‘Applicability to all’ has been agreed as a key feature of the Paris agreement, meaning every country needs to step up and play its part on climate action. The issue of responsibility still needs to be addressed, however, and governments need to allow time for healthy debate on this topic in Bonn. It is clear that the world has changed since 1990, but inequality among countries—especially relating to capabilities—persists.

For the 2015 agreement to be successful, and for countries to fairly bear this common responsibility of action, ECO wants to see consideration of differentiated responsibilities, particularly on financing implementation, and on the speed of the transition toward 100% renewable energy.
