Delayed Climate Pledges Put UN Treaty at Risk, Bangladesh Says

Countries that delay submitting carbon-cutting pledges to the United Nations this year may put the success of global climate talks at risk, according to Bangladesh’s negotiator.

Before talks start, nations will have the opportunity to assess each others’ plans, and late delivery may hamper the negotiations this December in Paris, Quamrul Chowdhury said in London. Switzerland is the only one of 196 countries participating to submit its pledge.
