Day 11 at Copenhagen: A heads-up as heads of state arrive

Text by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2009-12-17

As world leaders swarmed into the Bella Center Thursday, replacing the delegates and activists, the atmosphere changed from resignation to expectation at the summit.

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

The action at the Bella Center does not revolve around environmental activists and delegated anymore. With the arrival of the world’s leaders, there’s a palpable sense of hope in the air as sights are finally set firmly on hammering out a deal.

In their addresses, many world leaders warned against inaction. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the US was prepared to help establish funding of $100 billion a year for developing countries if there was a deal at Copenhagen. But how will the international community work out who pays what? That’s just one of the issues that are yet to be worked out.
