Summary

At the United Nations (UN) climate negotiations in Cancún, Mexico, in December 2010, the parties agreed to a global target of no more than 2°C warming above preindustrial levels. In an important new step, both developed and developing countries agreed to take urgent action to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to meet this long-term goal. They also set important milestones on reducing deforestation and providing funds to help developing countries adapt to climate change.
