It would be great if OPSEU had a visible presence at these events. If you're aware of any events in your community, please use the comments section to tell everyone about it.

The goals of the conference, as outlined at the United Nations website are,
  • Agree on a plan of action and programmes of work for the final year of negotiations after a year of comprehensive and extensive discussions on crucial issues relating to future commitments, actions and cooperation
  • Make significant progress on a number of on-going issues required to enhance further the implementation of the Convention and the Kyoto Protocol
  • Advance understanding and commonality of views on "shared vision" for a new climate change regime
  • Strengthen momentum and commitment to the process and the agreed timeline
Important continuing issues will be capacity-building for developing countries, reducing emissions from deforestation (REDD), technology transfer and adaptation.
