In 2007, Heads of State of eight major industrialised nations affirmed that the United Nations will remain ‘the appropriate forum for negotiating future global action on climate change.’ Within the U.N., however, a number of concurrent ‘tracks’ emerged for negotiations and discussions, accompanied by a certain degree of overlap and giving rise to questions on the mandate, scope, and limitations of each track as a pathway to a future climate regime. This article provides a retrospective on ten years of climate negotiations under the U.N., and traces important milestones and trends.
