the Durban Package are honoured and that the UNFCCC process is streamlined towards a new multilateral regime to be agreed by 2015; underscores that it is important to clarify how the Convention principles will be applied in a post-2020 framework so that all parties take on commitments; and is of the opinion that the new market-based mechanism, defined at COP 17, is of particular importance in this regard and hopes that the AWG-LCA succeeds in elaborating modalities and procedures for this mechanism; Or. en Amendment 29 Vittorio Prodi Motion for a resolution Paragraph 4 a (new) Motion for a resolution Amendment 4a. Given the lack of follow-up to the Bali declaration on common but differentiated responsibilities, believes that a new approach is needed, to widen the negotiations to include the concept of climate justice, and in particular "one person - one free emissions allowance"; considers further that the foundation of this principle is the right of every present and future human being to fair access to sustainable use of natural resources; in order to limit global warming to 2C, highlights the need to decrease current GHG emissions by 4/5, i.e. amounting to a decrease per capita emissions to 1 tonne per person, per year from the present 5 tonnes, meaning that every person should be assigned that base level free of charge, with all other emissions subject to a global trading scheme.
