Day 8 at Copenhagen: Africans walk out, talks stall - briefly

Text by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2009-12-14

Representatives of African nations briefly stormed out of talks at the Bella Centre on Monday, while protestors on the streets of Copenhagen called for climate justice.

From Day 1 through to Day 12, FRANCE 24's correspondents at the Bella Centre uncover the real issues stirring debate at the Copenhagen summit on climate change.

Negotiations at the climate summit descended into chaos for a few hours as African negotiators expressed their anger on Monday with a staged walkout to protest the lack of interest in the Kyoto Protocol, which binds rich countries – but not developing nations - to emission curbs. The talks resumed late on Monday, with negotiators striving to arrive at a deal whereby rich countries would finance green policies that would protect forests in developing countries.
