This year's UN Climate "Conference of the Parties" (COP18) in Doha, Qatar (November 26th to December 7th) will help further identify and advance a set of strategies for global action to reduce carbon pollution that we hope will move the world closer to negotiating a new global agreement in 2015 (that would take effect by 2020).
The Nature Conservancy is engaged in Doha on a number of fronts, and we're providing particular expertise on policy discussions around: 1) conserving tropical forests to reduce global carbon pollution and promote forest-friendly development; 2) using natural infrastructure as an important part of solutions to reduce risk to people and property from climate impacts and natural disasters; and 3) financing future climate action in countries around the world.
Below are some of the materials that the Conservancy will be featuring and discussing in Doha.
