  1. an analysis of the main principles of fairness relevant to the issue of differentiating emission mitigation targets among countries
  2. a brief evaluation of several burden sharing proposals launched since the mid-1990s
  3. a new, multi-sector convergence framework in support of future negotiations to reach agreement on national greenhouse gas emission mitigation targets
  4. an indication of its cost implications, and
  5. some concluding remarks and suggestions for further research.
