World climate change talks to open in Montreal

Governments to start on long road to post-2012 policy framework, reform and strengthen the CDM

Post-2012 policies and strengthening the Kyoto protocol's clean development mechanism will top the agenda when world governments gather for climate change talks in Canada, from Monday. Up to 10,000 participants are expected at the Montreal meeting, which reaches its climax in a ministerial segment on 8-9 December.

The historic 11th meeting of parties to the 1992 UN convention on climate change will also serve as the first meeting of parties to the convention's Kyoto protocol. The protocol entered force this February, along with limits it imposes on industrialised countries' greenhouse gas emissions in the period 2008-12 (EED 16/02/05).
