COP18 positioner og forviklinger

26. november 2012

Så er COP18 skudt i gang. I de næste 2 uger vil verdens lande dels forsøge at komme nærmere en global klimaaftale, dels prøve at få Kyoto-aftalen fortsat for den lille gruppe lande, som er til sinds at binde sig i årene frem mod 2020.

Herunder vil jeg løbende opdatere med links til artiker mv. om udviklingen i Doha. Tilsvarende er der links til artikler forud for COP18 samlet i blog-indlægget Optakt til COP18.

Se COP18 på Strøtanker for en oversigt over indlæg forbundet med COP18 og links til løbende information om COP18.
