Climate change - 10.04.2009
Local authorities come together to prepare a post-Kyoto agreement
Copenhagen will host the Local Government Climate Change Leadership Summit on the 2-4 of June, 2009. Local authorities from around the world will debate about their role in the new Climate Change agreement, which will be in effect in 2012, succeeding the Kyoto protocol.
Local authorities will aim at strengthening their commitments to counter the consequences of climate changes. They will also present the measures they have taken and their achievements on climate and energy issues.
Local governments will call on national governments to include in the post-2012 climate change agreement, to be adopted in Copenhagen, in December 2009, a reference of local governments' role to help tackle climate change.
