Durban mandate and how Africa caved in

The Durban climate change negotiation was billed as an African COP. But for Africa and much of the developing world, the outcome of the Durban talks was a major let down, writes *Kwesi W. Obeng.

 LAST December's climate change negotiations in Durban, South Africa marked a critical phase in rescuing the earth and humanity.However, the Durban decisions do not guarantee a safe future for most of the world's population especially in Africa.

 The regime change, that the 'Durban Action on Enhanced Action' (Durban Mandate) represents, fundamentally shifts the burden of climate change to developing countries from developed nations which are responsible for polluting the atmosphere, to trigger the phenomenon, in the first place.
