Inside COP6: International Climate Change Negotiations

Peake, Stephen (2001). Inside COP6: International Climate Change Negotiations. Refocus, 2(1) pp. 36–37.



The Sixth Conference of the Parties (COP6) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was billed by the UN as a make or break time for the planet and despite the extraordinary efforts of its President, Jan Pronk, the Dutch Minister of Environment, to broker agreements on how to implement the Kyoto Protocol, the talks were suspended on Saturday 25 November. Finally, it was decided to reconvene for a COP6 Part II in May/June 2001, most likely in Bonn (the home of the United Nations Climate Change Secretariat). Stephen Peake was at the meeting and in this report highlights some of the key events and their implications for renewable energy.
