A real failure would have been a failure of the negotiations from Paris to Copenhagen or a result that would only favour the developed countries with the recasting of the convention. Bilateral, regional and global groups and agreements involving India and/or affecting India`s interests At the 2014 COP meeting in Lima, where the CBDR-RC also did the trick, the parties committed to reaching an ambitious agreement in Paris that reflects the principle of CBDR-RC, given the diversity of national situations. This was the “landing zone” reached with regard to the CBDR principle, after the joint statement between China and the United States on emissions found its way into the Paris Agreement. A dichotomous interpretation of the CBDR-RC led to an international agreement on the convention and its Kyoto Protocol. Industrialized countries (Annex I) committed themselves to achieving absolute emission reduction or limitation targets, while all other countries (excluding Annex I) did not have such obligations. However, this rigid distinction does not reflect the dynamic diversification among developing countries since 1992, which has resulted in divergent contributions to global emissions and patterns of economic growth (Deleuil, 2012); Dubash, 2009). . . . .
