The Doha deal also establishes a loss-and-damage mechanism that helps the most vulnerable countries deal with the adverse effects of climate change.

"It's huge breakthrough," said Khor of South Center.

The Doha conference ensured the second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol, the only legally binding agreement for addressing global warming, but also paved the way for a new global climate regime after 2020.

The Doha climate talks are a modest step toward a global climate deal in 2015, said Hedegaard, adding there will be more climate battles in the coming years.
