The article discusses the author's views on the development of a post-2020 agreement for greenhouse gas emissions targets for developed and developing nations. He explains the move of participating nations to take on self-determined obligations with bottoms-down approach based on individual national priorities and circumstances. The author thinks that developing nations take a significant break from the tradition of the Kyoto Protocol in their commitment to reduce emissions.
