EVENT DESCRIPTION:

Since the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) entered into force, the parties have been meeting annually in Conferences of the Parties (COP) to assess progress in dealing with climate change, and beginning in the mid-1990s, to negotiate international accords to establish legally binding obligations for developed countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. In December 2009, the 15th Conference of Parties will assemble to revisit the Kyoto Protocol and seek to develop a worldwide consensus on regulating greenhouse gas emissions in developed and developing countries.

ACCO and BNA invite you to a presentation on what to expect from COP-15, with an interactive question-and-answer session, analysis of impacts on industry, and next steps for those who will be participating in activities in Copenhagen. During this 90-minute presentation, the panelists will:

– Review the negotiating process and identify major players;

– Highlight opportunities for success and challenging issues requiring resolution;

– Discuss the anticipated U.S. strategy entering into the negotiations;

– Assess how the activities of subnational governments and other regimes such as the Montreal Protocol may inform these negotiations; and

– Forecast results from the negotiations.
