Fifteen years after international climate negotiations began at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, and 10 years after the Kyoto Protocol was completed, the Bali Road Map and Action Plan outlined the steps needed to reach a new, post-Kyoto climate treaty in Copenhagen by the end of 2009. Beyond 2009, international negotiations on climate will likely continue in order to set new emission reduction targets, adapt to scientific advances, and adjust to a changing climate.
