The ‘meaningful participation’ of developing countries has been the object of several international climate negotiations since such is perceived to have some disputes regarding the climate regime. This chapter looks into the competing legitimacies associated with the said case. Using the common but differentiated responsibility (CBDR) principle, this chapter attempts to provide the philosophical and legal bases for construing the said obligations and the other possible international legal obligations in implementing the climate regime. While the CBDR principle aids in balancing the rival interpretations and claims in this issue, the chapter attempts to provide a further discussion regarding how developing countries and industrial countries are imposing a certain balance of commitments while also exploring guidelines that are influenced greatly by the CBDR principle in furthering the improvements and developments in the climate regime.

Keywords:   meaningful participation, developing countries, common but differentiated responsibility principle, balance of commitments, climate regime, international legal obligations
