OECD actively participates in the annual UN conferences on climate change to consider what can be done to reduce global warming (mitigation) and how to cope with whatever temperature increases are inevitable (adaptation).
The Secretary-General Angel Gurría and a team of OECD experts were in Copenhagen at the UN Summit on Climate Change (7-18 December 2009) to share analysis and policy advice.
“Though far from perfect, the Copenhagen Accord is a hard-fought political agreement.”, said OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría.
The OECD will actively participate in this conference in several ways: we will organise a side event (and participate in several others), our Secretary-General will make an official statement, we will publicise and disseminate our work via a publications stand.
