ADVISORY: Press Teleconference on Warsaw Climate Talks (COP19)

The next round of international climate talks, in Warsaw, is rapidly approaching. This year’s Conference of the Parties (COP19) is not expected to yield dramatic breakthroughs, but it is an important stepping stone in the lead up to the Paris negotiations in 2015.

The recent IPCC report reminds the world that the current course is not sustainable. The world urgently needs to transition to a low-carbon trajectory in order to meet the climate challenge.

On Thursday, October 31, experts from the World Resources Institute will participate in a press teleconference to discuss the key issues that need to be addressed in Warsaw. This includes what kind of “national offers” countries need to make, what is the role of the U.S. and China in the international negotiations, how to resolve "equity" issues, how to increase climate finance, and more.
