comes four months after the sanctions on Iran were lifted and the international community is re-engaging with the nation By Dinesh C Sharma The two-week-long negotiations for an international agreement on climate change have entered the crucial final round in Paris on Friday In all likelihood the talks will spill into Friday night and the outcome would be announced only on Saturday morning local time in the French capitalCan climate summit in Paris clinch a deal AP Those expecting a lasting solution to the air pollution in New Delhi or an international compensation package for ‘loss and damage’ caused by extreme weather events such as in Chennai from the Paris deal would be disappointed Far from coming up with a hard-hitting plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and a package of finance and technology for developing countries "Paris Outcome" (as the agreement has been named formally) is going to be a watered down deal The number of square brackets – which denote words still under negotiation – has come down drastically in the latest draft As of now there is no agreement on two sticky issues – differentiated action on part of developing countries and climate finance – emphasised by India and other developing countries The draft deal acknowledges the need to hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 degree Celsius above pre-industrial levels and also the need for pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 15 degree However it also says that the pledges made by different countries in the form of Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) don’t fall in the 2 degree scenario Therefore much more effort will be needed above the INDCs in the period after 2025 and 2030 in order to hold the temperature rise to below 2 degree The draft therefore suggests revision of INDCs every five years – a point on which there is no consensus as yet Another controversial clause in the draft relates to a proposed mechanism to ensure "clarity transparency and understanding" about national emission reduction goals and methodologies for data collection on greenhouse gas emissions In other words a policing mechanism has been proposed This has been talked about in different ways in previous rounds too and has been opposed by India and other countries While INDCs were proposed as a voluntary action by all countries now the effort seems to be to convert these voluntary pledges into semi-legally binding obligations The two clauses about revising INDCs and mechanism to monitor them are meant for this It also means that developed countries want to use INDCs as a tool to thwart any legally binding emission reduction targets as set in the Kyoto Protocol If Paris Outcome is adopted in its present form then countries would be bound by their INDCs and governed by a set of new rules It would also bring less polluting countries like India on par with leading polluters like America and European Union This would be against the spirit of ‘common but differentiated responsibility’ on which the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change rests On mobilising finances for adaptation transfer of technology to developing countries and capacity building the draft has nothing new to offer Earlier finance mechanisms such as the Green Climate Fund and Global Environment Facility have made little progress with major polluters like the US hardly providing any money despite pledging billions of dollars Projects worth less than $200 million have been sanctioned by GCF to developing countries for their mitigation efforts Clearly there is a huge gap between pledges and action when it comes to finance On technology transfer too the draft agreement is vague The final round of talks is usually very tricky with negotiators from different blocs and key players trying to veer the deal in their favour Paris is not going to be different So don’t be surprised if the outcome reads something different on Saturday morning DEBALTSEVE Ukraine/KIEV (Reuters) – Kiev accused Russia on Friday of sending more tanks and troops into eastern Ukraine and said they were heading towards the rebel-held town of Novoazovsk on the southern coast expanding their presence on what could be the next battlefront Russia did not immediately respond to the accusation which if confirmed would help kill off a European-brokered truce that was met by relentless rebel advances since it came into force on Sunday Moscow has always denied charges in the past that its forces are fighting in Ukraine Novoazovsk lies on the Sea of Azov 40 km (25 miles) east of the port city of Mariupol It was captured by rebels last year and Kiev fears it could be a launch pad for strikes on Mariupol a government-held port of 500000 people that controls routes to the south and possibly to the Crimea peninsula annexed by Russia a year ago "In recent days despite the Minsk (ceasefire) agreement military equipment and ammunition have been sighted crossing from Russia into Ukraine" military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said He said more than 20 Russian tanks 10 missile systems and busloads of troops had crossed the border into Ukraine The United States also says it has sighted Russian reinforcements Kiev said rebels had attacked 49 times in the last 24 hours proof that they were still ignoring the truce despite having achieved their main objective this week by capturing the railway hub of Debaltseve The rebels said government forces also fired Western nations have publicly clung to the hope that they can revive the peace deal brokered by France and Germany in the Belarussian capital Minsk on Feb 12 even though the rebels ignored it to seize Debaltseve inflicting one of the worst defeats on Kiev of the 10-month-old war "We are more convinced than ever that they must be applied – all the agreements nothing but the agreements" French President Francois Hollande said in Paris alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday "THESE ARE OURS NOW" In Debaltseve where Kiev was forced to withdraw thousands of besieged troops this week the black blue and red flag of the rebels’ self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic flew over the town hall Artillery could be heard in the distance Walls were pock-marked by bullets or had huge holes blown in them Burnt-out hulks of tanks and military trucks lay abandoned on the road Heavily armed rebels and tanks patrolled the streets on the outskirts where bridges had been blown up and the railway appeared to have suffered major damage A separatist fighter picked out ammunition left by fleeing government troops from the rubble "These are ours now and we’ll use them against them We have to expand" said the rebel who refused to give his own name straightening up while a dozen others continued their search for arms and ammunition The town held around 27000 people before the fighting Most fled during the battle but thousands remained trapped inside sheltering in cellars during days of relentless bombardment Several hundred lined up for food in the centre of town Many were weeping as they stood in the queue "We’re waiting They should bring dry meals in blue packaging since the pasta is already finishing" said Yulia 28 a teacher holding her 10 year old niece by the hand ?
