Japan Wins 1st Place Fossil

First place Fossil is awarded to Japan. The Shared Vision finds itself in a deadlock situation since Parties don’t seem to find a procedure to bridge the discussions on the long-term global goal and the debate on other items, namely equity. While CAN without effect tried to make an intervention at the Shared Vision informals on a possible way of moving the discussion out of its deadlock, Japan frankly raised the question: “Are the other items necessary for this discussion?” Japan – along with other countries not being open to even hear the concerns on equity and other items – are of no help in re-connecting the long-term global goal and equity, which are, in their nature, interlinked debates. The view of limiting the Shared Vision to the global goal and the peak year doesn’t lead us anywhere and should be overcome by this point of time in the discussion and before Durban.
