Some delegates say it will be hard to secure anything other than a symbolic deal because of divisions between nations over how to cut carbon emissions.
But UN representatives say the Cancun talks are providing building blocks for the future through agreements on issues such as technology transfer to poorer nations and REDD - 'Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation'.
On Thursday, we will be talking to Georgina Kessel Martínez, Mexico's energy secretary, Kandeh Yumkella, the UN Industrial Development Organisation director-general, and Patrick Michaels, an American climatologist.
