The development of a shared vision to avoid dangerous climate change was a central plank of the concluding statement of the Bali Action Plan which was adopted at a December 2007 conference in Bali, Indonesia by parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol.
The plan states that parties will develop "a shared vision for long-term cooperative action, including a long-term global goal for emission reductions, to achieve the ultimate objective of the Convention, in accordance with the provisions and principles of the Convention, in particular the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities, and taking into account social and economic conditions and other relevant factors."
In particular, the four pillars of a successor agreement to the Kyoto Protocol were agreed as being:
- "Enhanced national/international action on mitigation of climate change";
- "Enhanced action on adaptation"
- "Enhanced action on technology development and transfer to support action on mitigation and adaptation"; and
- "Enhanced action on the provision of financial resources and investment to support action on mitigation and adaptation and technology cooperation".
