Peru climate talks a stepping stone to universal treaty
As Peru begins talks on a global climate change treaty at the United Nations’ Climate Conference in Cancun, Mexico, it is meeting with a country that has shown no interest in accepting its Kyoto Protocol emissions targets.
A letter on the government’s website, signed by 15 ministers, states that Peru is “not interested in negotiating any more UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.”
“We are of the opinion that the framework of the UNFCCC is not going to be possible or even possible with Peru,” wrote the cabinet of foreign affairs, health, science and education.

Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, a former presidential candidate, says he will not sign the pact because Peru will do more for the environment.
But at a news conference on Tuesday evening, a climate change negotiator, Ricardo Mocenigo, who works with Peru at the Rio Earth Institute in Lima, said the country’s position was weak because it did not even have a UN treaty.
“We know that if we do something to improve our climate, that is what matters to the developing countries,” Mocenigo said.
Mocenigo said he hoped the talks would take place under a mechanism called “universal and binding obligations.”
The “bodies” mentioned by Peru’s ministers are the Council of Europe, European Union, World Trade Organization, International Monetary Fund, World Bank, the United Nations Children Fund, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), UNDP, the World Bank and other federal governments.
