GDRs gets a strong vote of support from South Africa

The recent negotiations (AWG-KP, Bonn, March 27) saw South Africa speak for GDRs in the opening plenary.   The context was principle-based burden sharing amoung the developed (Annex 1) countries, and South Africa showed a set of options that included a modified version of the GDRs Responsibility and Capacity Index.   Suffice it to say that we were quite pleased, but that some folks found the recommended Annex 1 targets to be rather… challenging.
