Climate action commissioner Connie Hedegaard has said that a legally binding deal on climate change would not be achievable before the ‘Cop 17' - the Conference of Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, which is to take place in December 2011 in South Africa. Mrs. Hedegaard also said that an agreement would have to wait for the South African meeting because this would finally be hosted by one of the so-called Basic (Brazil, South Africa, India and China) countries, the most powerful of the globe's developing nations.
According to Mrs. Hedegaard he EU would have to take a "step-wise approach", including different paths for influencing the international debate. The European Council’s meeting on 25-26 March 2010 will address primarily the climate change dossier.
