International negotiations

This page is intended primarily for policy makers, journalists and others who attend or report on international meetings about climate change. Hopefully though, it is also useful to anyone who wants better understanding of what goes on at these meetings, and what is at stake from their results.

For each meeting you will find Greenpeace position statements and other relevant documents, and oftenfirst hand accounts from our delegations.  Please note that most of these are archived web page, and so may be out of date.
