There is a divide between the developed world, which looks at the creation of long-term sustainable and balanced evolution, and the emerging countries, which are under high pressure to deliver economic growth to allow them to tackle their social challenges.1) How can the divide between developed and emerging countries be bridged, and how can the latter be better integrated into protecting global climate?2) How efficient are the current climate protection policies of developed countries?
