CARICOM climate change ministers and negotiators working out COP21 strategy

CARICOM climate change negotiators and ministers began a two-day meeting in St. Lucia today, to revise and improve the region`s negotiating artillery in preparation for the 21st session of the Conference of Parties (COP 21) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC).

This second meeting of CARICOM ministers responsible for climate change follows a previous gathering held in Castries on September 18. The objective of the meeting is to prepare the ministers to engage in the pre-COP meeting organized by the COP Presidency, in November.
