Cancun Opening

November 29, 2010

Well, after an entire year after Copenhagen failed the world, the Cancun climate talks have begun.

Logistically, much improvement can be seen, with registration and transportation to the conference venues quite straightforward, albeit with a number of cumbersome arrangements. This year, there are two conference venues, with everyone having to go through security at at the first venue before taking a specially chartered bus to the second, in which all the official negotiations are held. Furthermore, access to the venues are restricted, with many possibly going in for mere days due to safety, security and capacity reasons.

At the Moon Palace conference venue where negotiations are held, first impressions are mixed. Facilities seems adequate, but an air of uncertainly as delegates orientate themselves with the locations of plenaries and meeting rooms. Uncertainty extends to what can be expected over the next two weeks, how the 192 UN members, international organizations and  civil society organizations will play the game of climate negotiations and set a positive direction for the world to follow.

Updates later in the day…
