EMERGING POWERS, THE IBSA STATES AS PARTNERS AND LEADERS IN A FUTURE GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE REGIME (Chevallier, Romy) SAIIA KAS

India, Brazil and South Africa, the so-called IBSA states, are becoming increasingly significant global actors and strategic partners in global environmental governance. As a result of important changes in the global geo-political landscape and their growing political and economic importance, there is a need to recognize the important contribution of these countries towards a more equitable global climate change regime. IBSA member states share similar challenges of dealing simultaneously with energy security, climate change and socio-economic development. These common policy issues have become key pillars around which these governments seek potential allies and appropriate forums of dialogue with key Southern partners. IBSA’s cooperation on the mitigation agenda is particularly timely and significant given that the second phase of the Kyoto Protocol is currently being negotiated, with the next round of talks on the Bali Roadmap to take place in Durban in December 2011. The next phase will entail penalties for the non-compliance of mitigation actions by big emitters. In this regard, large developing economies are faced with significant mitigation and development challenges. It is thus important and particularly timely to strengthen and extend the dialogue and partnership among fossil-fuel producing and consuming countries.
