Comments Off | 11-27-2011

The 17th Conference of the Parties (COP17) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the 7th Session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties (CMP7) to the Kyoto Protocol, will be held in Durban, South Africa, from November 28 to December 9, 2011.

As emphasized by the Undersecretary-General for Environment, Energy, Science and Technology of the Ministry of External Relations, Ambassador Luiz Alberto Figueiredo Machado, Brazil looks forward to achieving an ambitious, balanced and comprehensive outcome in the Durban Conference. For Brazil, such an outcome must include the adoption of a second commitment period under the Kyoto Protocol, beyond 2012, so that the global response to climate change will continue to be guided by fair and consistent international standards, according to the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities.
