The Union of Concerned Scientists and the 2010 Climate Negotiations

From November 29 to December 10, 2010, more than 15,000 people gathered in Cancun, Mexico, to move toward a comprehensive global climate agreement as part of the United Nation's Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Officials from more than 190 countries were be joined by journalists, advisers, businesspeople, nonprofits, and students as they negotiated in hopes of reaching a global deal to drive down global warming pollution and help avoid the worst effects of climate change. 

The result of the 2009 meeting was a voluntary framework, known as the Copenhagen Accord, through which countries can pledge their plans for reducing global warming pollution. Countries will continue negotiating throughout the future with the goal of reaching a fair, ambitious, legally binding, and comprehensive international agreement.
