Climate Negotiations at the Edge: Richard Calland on COP17

December 21st, 2011 by

The University of Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership have just published the latest issue of their e-publication The Edge, featuring Richard Calland, Associate Professor of Public Law at the University of Cape Town. On their website you can find a video in which he introduces his interesting article giving a perspective on the recent COP 17 (meeting of the parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) at Durban, South Africa.

Calland talks about “Climate Negotiations at the Edge: Good COP, Bad COP”, and the importance of the “thick outer belt of innovation, networking, and dialogue” around the fringe of the COP: “If Plan A is a neat little international treaty that solves everything, then very simply, we have to turn to Plan B”.
