Katowice, Poland (dpa),   Dec 14, 2018- The UN climate conference was set to enter its final day on Friday with many issues still unresolved despite two weeks of intensive debate.   

Negotiators from 196 countries sat into the night on Thursday in Katowice, Poland in a bid to make progress on drafting a rule-book for implementing and financing the 2015 Paris climate agreement.  Back then it was agreed that global warming should be kept to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-Industrial levels and preferably to less than 1.5 degrees, but countries were to put forward their own plans to cut emissions.    Scientists say the measures agreed so far fall desperately short of what is needed.   At the COP24 talks in Katowice, delegates have clashed over financing, with poorer countries most affected by climate change demanding long-term financial support and recognition of the damage that it causes.
