COP18 Doha

2012 UN Conference of the Parties on Climate Change

The 2012 UN Climate "Conference of the Parties" (COP18) in Doha, Qatar helped 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 engaged in Doha on a number of fronts and provided 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 featured and discussed in Doha.
