This report reviews new commitments for climate technology measures from the Heiligendamm Summit Declaration that could structure a post-2012 framework for climate mitigation that could complement cap and trade strategies. Europe, the United States, as well as China and India, will start a multi-year process this year to create a new post-2012 climate framework that will include a portfolio of measures, including cap and trade as well as new climate technology agreements and policies.
