After the ambiguous outcome of the 2009 climate summit in Copenhagen, the countries of the world, under the auspices of the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action, are now negotiating to reach a new international climate agreement by the 2015 summit in Paris. The EU, China, and the US are the most influential actors in this process. Utilizing a leadership perspective, this contribution focuses on the interplay of leadership forms, leadership visions, and leadership recognition with regards to the three greenhouse gas giants vying to mobilize support and shape the evolving global climate regime. The chapter analyses recent outcomes and developments in the UNFCCC negotiating process and considers the prospects for a new climate agreement that would be applicable to all parties and enter into force by 2020.
