Abstract
International climate change negotiations reached a critical crossroads in 2012. Facing the conclusion of the Kyoto Protocol and with no successor regime yet negotiated, nations have been compelled to re-engage in substantive and far-ranging discussions. The nation of Korea has distinguished itself in this process, in particular by hosting the final ministerial meeting prior to this year’ Conference of the Parties in Doha, Qatar. The Korean government’ willingness to lead has also been evidenced by Korea’ founding of the Global Green Growth Institute, a leading international organization in the area of environmentally responsible economic development, and Korea’ successful bid to host the Green Climate Fund secretariat. Korean diplomacy has aided in the consensus to extend the Kyoto Protocol and to continue efforts to implement a new climate change architecture by 2020.
