UN Framework Convention on Climate Change COP14

December 1st, 2008

Practical Action will be attending the fourteenth conference of parties (COP 14) in Poznań year from 1- 12 December this year. After the slow but significant progress at COP 13 in Bali we are hoping that climate change adaptation will be firmly at the heart of discussions and that some momentum will be built towards mapping out a post-Kyoto deal that takes account of the need of developing countries for support and finance to cope with climate change, and to enable them to develop along a low-carbon path. The Poznan Climate Change Conference needs to move from discussion to negotiation mode in order to complete a new international agreement in Copenhagen in 2009.

Our team in Poznań will consist of representatives from Peru, Nepal, and Bangladesh as well as the UK. They will be monitoring the discussions and pressing the urgency of formulating a coherent plan for tackling climate change in the post-Kyoto era. You will be able to follow progress here, with regular updates and blogs.

    recently, there has been some massive flooding in the Philippines and Vietnam which i think is also due to Climate Change. the tropical storms in asia are somewhat getting stronger stronger each year.
