CSE's South Asian Media Briefing Workshop on Climate Change, 2011


New Delhi, India

November 16-17, 2011

The stage is getting set for the 17th Conference of Parties (CoP) in Durban. This is also the year which might sound the death knell for the Kyoto Protocol. In which direction would climate change negotiations and action head in the coming years? What more evidence has the science and study of climate change thrown up? And would the debates and discussions on mitigation and adaptation be a little more transparent, coherent and comprehensible this year?

We, at Centre for Science and Environment’s (CSE) Media Resource Unit, think these and many other similar questions would have found an answer at our Annual South Asian Media Briefing Workshop on Climate Change.

Journalists from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, attended the workshop to get an insight of the ongoing advances in the climate negotiations as well as progress on mitigation, adaptation, finance and technology fronts.

The two day workshop was attended by over 120 journalists, writing on local, national and gobal levels about the ongoing mesh of talks, to corner the government representatives, consultants and industry about the future plans to combat climate change. The workshop brought together scientists, negotiations, experts, industry, consultants, government representatives to brief the journalists and answer their queries and bring them up to date with the events.  The workshop was concluded by the Minister MOEF Ms. Jayanthi Natarajan
