Key dates after Copenhagen

The Globe and Mail has reported that, “In the draft text (of the Copenhagen Accord), the countries agree to turn their limited political agreement into a legally binding treaty no later than November 2010 when the UN climate convention meets in Mexico City, and sooner if possible.”

While there has been speculation about some form of follow-up negotiations taking place this March, the first scheduled UN climate meeting after Copenhagen is in Bonn, Germany on May 31 to June 11.

This may be a crucial meeting for further discussion on the Copenhagen Accord.

It may also be that the G20 summit in Toronto on June 26-27 could be a key negotiating moment.

The next full Conference of Parties like the one in Copenhagen will take place November 8-19 in Mexico City. (It has also been reported that COP 16 will take place November 29 to December 10.)

The Council of Canadians is committed to climate justice and will be evaluating early in the new year the ways we can best make our next interventions at home and abroad.
