Bangalore: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said nations made limited progress at the Copenhagen climate-change summit and no one was satisfied with the outcome.
“There is no escaping the truth that the nations of the world have to move to a low greenhouse gas emissions and energy efficient development path,” Singh told delegates attending the Indian Science Congress in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday, according to an emailed statement from his office.
The Copenhagen Accord sets the goal of limiting global temperature increases to 2 degrees Celsius. It also pledges $30 billion (Rs1.4 trillion) between 2010 and 2012 and $100 billion a year by 2020 for developing countries to help adapt to and mitigate the effects of climate change.
