The two-day meeting in Nebersdorf, eastern Austria, ended on Friday and laid the groundwork for the United Nations Climate Change Conference 2011, being held in Durban from November 28-December 9.

Alongside counterparts from Germany, Austria and Liechtenstein, Leuthard discussed current developments in climate protection, renewable energy, energy efficiency and also nuclear policies.

She also said any involvement of industrialised countries in extending the Kyoto Protocol needed to be linked to an obligation for all nations – especially developing nations – to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions.
