Description & Background

Zapiro’s cartoon drawn and published before a last minute and late agreement. Just as it looked as no deal would be made after 12 days of negotiataions, delegates surprisngly agreed on a pact that would for the first time force all the biggest polluters to take action on greenhouse gas emissions, but critics said it was not aggressive enough to slow global warming.

The package of accords extends the Kyoto Protocol, agrees on the format of a fund to help poor countries tackle climate change and maps out a path to a legally binding agreement on emissions reductions.
