Implementation methodologiesIf we are to succeed, we must be willing to take on the necessary commitments.
Developed countries must provide adequate, predictable and sustainable funding.
And this funding must be based on results.
Developing countries must put in place efficient national policies and systems to verify reductions and build capacity.
In order to achieve this, we must put a price on carbon.
