UNFCCC COP16 Climate Negotiations in Cancun, Mexico

I'm here with several Brown students, faculty, and staff, working with the Latin American Platform on Climate Change to cover the UNFCCC climate negotiations in Cancun, Mexico. I will be here for the first week of negotiations, from November 28th to December 5th, 2010. A second group of Brown students will be coming for the final week from December 5th to December 12th.

I will be posting videos of interviews with NGO observers, youth activists, national delegates, and more, as well as updates on the day to day activities of the conference. I hope you enjoy!
