Summary [pdf, 103 KB, English]

In light of beginning negotiations on further action / post 2012, Ecologic organised the workshop "Future Climate Change Policy: Looking beyond 2012". The workshop was the fifth in a series of events commissioned by the European Commission. On the first day, the workshop discussed "Future Climate Change Policy in the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia". On the second day, the workshop dealt with "International and EU Climate Change Policies after COP 12 / MOP 2: Challenges and Opportunities for the New Member States and Candidate Countries".

Workshop goals
Taking into account the specific circumstances in the new Member States and Candidate Countries, this workshop intended to discuss the specific needs of these countries as well as realistic negotiation scenarios for the post-2012 commitments. Views were exchanged on how the EU, and in particular the countries addressed, should build on the Kyoto Protocol and work together after 2012 to fight climate change. The workshop allowed representatives from a range of institutions and stakeholder groups an opportunity to contribute to the debate on the future of EU and global climate policy.

The workshop assembled about 58 representatives from politics, business, science and non-governmental organisations in the new Member States and Candidate Countries. Government representatives from the EU-15 as well as the European Commission also attended.
