The two week session of UN Climate Change negotiations has begun in Katowice, Poland. Six IECA members are participating.
We will post comments periodically. Our first week team is Jill Hopke, Anna Palliser, and Gregg Walker (me).
This morning - on the long bus ride from Krakow to Katowice, I sat next to one of the senior negotiators from Chile. I learned a lot about what he and colleagues in other developing countries hope for and expect from the COP. He believes that the Parties will approve a Paris “Rule Book,” although he (and many of us here) are concerned about the implications of Brazil’s presidential election.
