United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres meets Southeast Asia climate activists from the A-FAB coalition of Greenpeace, Oxfam and WWF in front of the United Nations Conference Center in Bangkok where UN climate negotiations are being held this week.  The activists, wearing winter jackets, rain gear and beach wear to portray climate chaos that is wreaking havoc across the region, are asking for a fair, ambitious and binding global climate deal from world governments on behalf of the region’s most vulnerable and least prepared populations.  During the Bangkok intersessional from April 3 to 8, governments will meet to take forward agreed objectives from the UN climate talks in Cancun last December.
