On Friday morning, negotiators had first sight of the text that may be the outcome of Copenhagen. The Chair of the negotiations under the Convention (the AWG-LCA, Ad hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action) issued a Draft Text with the exciting title “Outcome of the Work” of the AWG-LCA.

The Chair of of AWG-KP (Ad hoc Working Group on further commitments for Annex I Parties under the Kyoto Protocol) is expected to also issue a text. This will be important for developing countries, who insist that Kyoto should not be killed and that a second commitment period must start in 2013 with much deeper cuts by developed countries.
