Day 3 at Copenhagen: rich vs poor rift widens

A day after a leaked draft deal sparked fury among delegates from African and other developing countries, the tone was less strained at the Copenhagen climate summit on Wednesday, but misunderstandings lingered on.


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.

Deep rifts emerged between developing and developed nations on the second day of a critical Copenhagen climate summit over a leaked Danish draft agreement. African and other emerging nations, which form the G77 bloc, say the text ignores their concerns and warn that it threatens to scupper what has been dubbed the "Last Chance Summit".

Eve Irvine’s guest tonight is Lumumba Stanislaus-Kaw Di-Aping, chair of the G77 group of developing countries.
