The head of the Brazilian delegation to COP 17, Ambassador André Correa do Lago, expressed hope today for a global agreement on a second period under the Kyoto Protocol.

“The economic crisis should not be an excuse for less ambition and less action in the fight against climate change — it is an opportunity. I believe we all know we’ve been going in a direction that is not sustainable and the crisis is an opportunity to really address sustainable development in a more straight forward way,” he said during a press briefing following the first day of talks in Durban.
