Preparatory Workshops for Developing and Newly Industrialising Countries for Negotiations on a 2009 Climate Agreement


Objective and activities

The project briefed negotiators from developing countries and emerging economies on the climate negotiation process as well as relevant key issues and developments. This promoted their appropriate and effective participation in negotiations under the Bali Road Map. The project partners organised preparatory workshops for Asian, African and Latin American negotiators, and in particular those from the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS). Lead negotiators from these groups had the opportunity to define and coordinate their negotiating strategies on climate change and technology transfer, financing, adaptation, mitigation, flexible mechanisms and other urgent issues.
