Bangkok meeting focuses on directing funds to developing nations for climate change adaptation

  •   September 24, 2012

Bangkok hosted an important meeting from August 31-Sept 5 when governments prepared for decisions that they will take at the next UN climate change conference in Doha. Three negotiating groups met informally in Bangkok; one focused on how to amend the Kyoto Protocol, the second prepared the work, which was started in 2007, to limit the average global temperature rise to below 2 degrees Celsius, and the third mulled how to take the next steps necessary to negotiate the new global climate change agreement, which must be adopted by 2015 and enter into force from 2020. A common theme running through the Bangkok meeting was how to make sure that the promised amounts and adequate funds flow from developed to developing countries to support their plans to deal with climate change.
