6th November - on the eve of COP22 - a quick summary
We thought it might be of interest to our network of partners if we were to try to follow progress at this year's COP, in Marrakech, by recording short voice-blogs generally every evening. The conference runs from tomorrow, the 7th, to the 18th of November. We may not have much to report on some evenings, but we will try to keep you up to date.
To begin with, I thought I'd try to set the scene, and along the way to explain a few of the terms and acronyms used as I'm aware that some of us are not approaching this event from a climate perspective and perhaps for the first time.
Please use the comments space below to share your thoughts and ideas of this and subsequent summaries.
Thank you, Graham.
