Post-Kyoto Agreement

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 1 May 2008

19. To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what progress has been made on an agreement on climate change since the Bali summit. (202808)

Following the Bali UNFCCC summit all parties to the Convention met in Bangkok last month to agree a workplan for this year on the four areas to be agreed—mitigation, adaptation, technology and finance/investment. In addition ministerial colleagues and I have taken part in several other discussions on achieving a new agreement, including the Major Economies Process, the G8 Gleneagles dialogue and at the OECD. Since Bali I have also had bilateral meetings with many of the key countries to discuss progress.
