Cop09 14 October 2008: More than 40 environment ministers and
high-level representatives held talks in Warsaw, Poland, from 13-14 October
2008, to prepare for the 14th Conference of the Parties (COP14) to the UNFCCC,
scheduled to take place in December 2008 in Poznań, Poland. During the informal
consultations, which were chaired by Maciej Nowicki, Minister of Environment of
Poland and future COP14 President, participants underscored that Poznań will be
a milestone for the new global climate agreement and agreed that the current
financial crisis should not hinder efforts to tackle climate change.

Discussions focused on progress achieved so far according to Bali Action Plan,
and the development of a long-term common vision of cooperation on climate
change. It was also agreed that during COP14’s high level segment, round tables
of ministers and heads of delegation would take place to develop a long-term
vision for climate protection. Based on these consultations, Nowicki’s
negotiating strategy for COP14 will be prepared. [COP14
