The European Union said it welcomed the outcome of the Doha climate change conference, which laid down the basis for more ambitious international action against climate change in the short term, paves the way for a new global climate agreement to be finalized in 2015, and enables a second period of the Kyoto Protocol to start on Jan. 1, 2013.

"In Doha, we have crossed the bridge from the old climate regime to the new system. We are now on our way to the 2015 global deal," said Connie Hedegaard, European Commissioner for Climate Action. "It was not an easy and comfortable ride. It was not a very fast ride either. But we have managed to cross the bridge. Very intense negotiations lie ahead of us. What we need now is more ambition and more speed.""

"This package of decisions provides a solid basis for increasing the ambition level of global emissions action by 2015. The EU will work with our partners to make the most of this opportunity," said Sofoclis Aletraris, Cypriot Minister for Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment, whose country currently holds the presidency of the Council of the European Union. "We came to Doha keen to hear concrete proposals from developing countries for addressing loss and damage associated with the impacts of climate change, and we welcome the agreement here to establish institutional arrangements for this issue next year."
