Influence, Outcomes, and Effects
A report was made public on February 11, 2002. Participants issued 36 recommendations, among which were: a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, an increase in the budget for research on renewable energies, a long-term phase out of nuclear power, the taxation of kerosene, a reduction of speed limits, and the creation of a global compensation fund for victims of natural disasters. The CFDD (which initiated the Conference) ceased to exist upon the 2002 national elections and the ensuing government change. The outcomes of the conference were seemingly ignored.
