The timetable to reach a global deal to tackle climate change lay in tatters yesterday after the United Nations waived the first deadline of the process laid out at last month’s fractious Copenhagen summit.

Nations agreed then to declare their emissions reduction targets by the end of this month. Developed countries would state their intended cuts by 2020; developing countries would outline how they would curb emissions growth.

But Yvo de Boer, the UN’s top climate change official, admitted yesterday that the deadline had in effect been shelved.

“By [the end of] January, countries will have the opportunity to . . . indicate if they want to be associated with the accord,” he said. “[Governments could] indicate by the deadline, or they can also indicate later.”
