Norway boosts "climate diplomat" roster post-Bali

Oslo looks to secure "prominent role" in talks to agree world climate policy for after 2012

Norway is sending a cadre of specially-trained "climate diplomats" to key embassies as a follow-up to the UN's Bali climate conference, according to national broadcaster NRK. The aim is to play "a prominent role in efforts to secure a new climate agreement... [while] looking after our interests as a matter of urgency", foreign minister Jonas Gahr Støre told the network on Tuesday. At least 30 climate envoys will work in the US, China and India, while another will be stationed in Copenhagen in the run-up to the 2009 UN climate summit there. See NRK.
