Copenhagen Climate Change Conference

(03 Nov 2009)

2009 is a crucial year in the international effort to address climate change. A series of high level meetings are taking place throughout the year, designed to agree an ambitious and effective international response to climate change, at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 15) in Copenhagen, from the 7th to the 18th of December 2009.

The main aim of the climate conference is to negotiate a successor to the Kyoto Protocol, the first international agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. At recent informal climate change talks in Bonn in August 2009, UNFCCC Executive Secretary Yvo de Boer stressed that;"a climate deal in Copenhagen this year is an unequivocal requirement to stop climate change from slipping out of control”.
Ireland will be represented at the Copenhagen talks by experts from relevant Irish bodies and government departments such as the Department of Environment Heritage and Local Government.
