OVERVIEW

There were significantly diverging notions of impact, responsibilities, and historical contexts that underpinned the climate change debate between Europe and Asia in the lead-up to the 15th Conference of the Parties (or COP 15) in Copenhagen. However, some of these differences appear to have been bridged.The successful conclusion of COP16 held in December 2010 in Cancún gives hope for an eventual co-ordinated global response to effectively manage climate change. ?

For the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change negotiations to be successful, countries must take on a more committed approach in adapting to climate change.In particular, Europe needs to focus on mitigating emissions while Asia needs to focus on adapting to the impact of those emissions. In this respect, the media can play an important role in driving awareness of the key issues, which have been stumbling blocks for reaching a final agreement in an internationally binding accord.
