Climate Change And North-South Divide: Between and within

December 14th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Author: PRUM Virak

Abstract

The traditional North-South divide has persisted throughout the negotiations on climate change. Divergent state interests made striking a right balance between development and environmental protection an elusive endeavors as negotiators were striving to adopt a global climate regime. Four principles for the international environmental law are of particular concern: the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities, the principle of equity, the precautionary principle, and the principle of sustainable development. With economic development being the overriding priority in developing countries, the negotiations leading to the Kyoto Protocol tend to prove that principles could be interpreted in different ways to fit particular interests. This study explains the confrontation between the north and the south and argues that climate change has by far strengthened the North and South divide both between and within. Accordingly, it concludes that there is a need to devise new principles.

    Tokyo also has ridiculously clean swubays. I think DC’s are pretty clean tho. And London’s are clean too but the whole upholstered seats thing makes me feel dirty thinking about who has sat on them before.I want to see Tut but I think he’ll be gone when I get back. I’m very sad. If you go, take pictures (if they’ll let you) and blog with heavy detail on it.PI will be fun. The first few days I’m going straight to Palawan never been there before. Haven’t been back to the PI for over 10 years now. I will post pictures. I think. I mean, I never even posted pics of the UK. I’ll have to do that Costco hot dogs are the bomb!
