Sierra Club Canada
From November 28-December 9, 2005, Canada will host the 11th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the 1st Meeting of the Parties of the Kyoto Protocol. Veteran activists from previous negotiations (“climate junkies”) call these meetings “COP11/MOP1.”
If you are walking into a United Nations negotiation for the first time, you are likely wondering what to expect. If you are staying home, but want to make a difference through local activism, you may want a more detailed briefing on the issues and the terminology of all the different concepts.
