Front-line negotiators from more than 190 nations gathering for climate talks in Bonn, Germany face a daunting task: bring the 2015 Paris Agreement to life.
 
The world's only climate treaty pledges to cap global warming at "well under" 2 deg C and prevent man-made CO2 from leeching into the atmosphere by century's end.
 
However, it left a mountain of critical rules and procedures to be worked out.
 
US President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of Paris pact - along with US efforts to boost fossil fuel technologies - have not helped, even as China, France, Germany and Canada have stepped in to fill the breach in climate leadership.
 
Voluntary national pledges made under the treaty to cut carbon pollution, if fulfilled, would yield no better than a 3 deg C world. Once-every-five-year reviews of these commitments do not kick in until 2023.
 
Negotiators know this is too late.
