Annex I Expert Group Seminar with non-Annex I countries, May 2008, Paris

 

"Working Together to Respond to Climate Change"
Annex I Expert Group Seminar with non-Annex I countries

5-6 May 2008
OECD Conference Centre, Paris, France

 

The 2008 Annex I Expert Group Seminar with non-Annex I countries included 140 participants from 47 countries and organisations. The seminar benefited from a high level of participation from non-Annex I governments and experts -- including  Chile, China, Costa Rica, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Morocco, Paraguay, Peru, South Africa, Sudan and Tuvalu. It focussed on four main topics: (i) exploring different mitigation options; (ii) reducing emission from deforestation (REDD)– structuring mechanisms for environmental performance; (iii) how to boost clean technology innovation diffusion and transfer in the near to medium term; and (iv) adaptation in the post-2012 framework.
