The parties at the Bangkok Climate Change dialogue held between March 31 and April 4, 2008, arrived at a consensus on two major points for a work programme on long term climate policy -- the 'development of a work programme' for the Ad-hoc working group on long term cooperative action, and the adoption of additional new commitments to be undertaken after 2012 by the developed countries.

The conclusions indicate a shift towards a long-term perspective, and the development of a post-Kyoto Protocol framework. The parties agreed on the identification of five themes -- shared vision, mitigation, adaptation, finance, technology transfer. The difference over sequencing the themes reflected clear division between developed and developing countries. Uncertainty prevailed over the fate of evolving a meaningful framework for discussion. This paper discuss about the developments that took place at Bangkok and concerns of developing countries to be discussed at UNFCCC Bonn meeting.
