The three main negotiation tracks under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) have held informal sessions in Bangkok, Thailand between 30 August and 5 September 2012. The sessions were not mandated to produce negotiating text, but were seen as a necessary forum for discussion before the 18th Conference of the Parties (COP18), which will take place in Doha, Qatar at the end of November.
The agenda for COP18 is heavy and expectations are high. In accordance with decisions reached at COP17 in Durban, South Africa, Doha is expected to come to major decisions regarding the future of global climate policy and action – and these decisions are bound to have an impact on the way wetlands, in particular peatlands, are managed across the globe.
