Countries spent this week proposing specific legal text that they would like considered as a part of the final agreement in Paris. Coming out of the negotiations in Lima, countries pulled together an “elements text”. This elements text wasn’t in the form of a legal text, so this week countries proposed specific legal language that they would like included for each aspect of the potential Paris agreement. The length of the text increased to 86 pages, but that is to be expected at this point as countries each proposed their ideas. [Remember in Copenhagen we had a more than 200 page negotiating text just hours before leaders were to arrive and finalize an agreement.] The full draft legal text is now available for countries to see the various contours of a potential agreement. Emerging in this text and the discussions during the week are several key themes that will have a large impact on the strength of this new agreement.
