Workshop on post 2012 climate regime
„Support for shaping the Post Kyoto Climate Regime”
5-6. March 2009, Szentendre, Hungary
After COP 14 held in Poznan last year December international negotiations are expected to shape a global deal at COP 15 and COP/MOP 5 in Copenhagen at the end of 2009. On the road to the final agreement it is extremely crucial to have a transparent, balanced and acceptable approach for the rules of future commitments. There are several approaches on the table at present. Countries in Central and Eastern Europe and Turkey are in a very specific situation, since they are less developed than the developed countries, but more developed than the developing countries. Problems arising from this fact have not been much discussed on regional level.
The aim of the workshop is to fill in this gap and contribute to shaping and developing their position toward to post Kyoto climate regime. That goal is to be achieved on the one hand by providing with information about the state of art of international negotiations and the different approaches for the future commitments. On the other hand the aim of the event is to organize a discussion forum, where the implications on the CEE region and Turkey can be addressed. The workshop participants are the governmental representatives, the experts from the international organizations, and the representatives of the NGO community.
