UN to Hold 2011 Climate Talks in Bagkok

The UN will hold a climate change conference in Bangkok from April 3-8 to continue the discussion started at last month’s meeting in Mexico.

Senior officials will meet to hash out the future of the Kyoto Protocol and develop a fund for impoverished nations imperiled by climate change, according to sources speaking to AFP on condition of anonymity.

The two-week climate talks in Cancun last month failed to reach any conclusions about the Kyoto Protocol, the global greenhouse gas-curbing agreement that expires at the end of 2012.

UN Framework Convention on Climate Change signatories will also discuss financing the conservation of tropical forests, AFP reports.

UNFCCC officials will also gather in Bonn, Germany later this year for a senior official level meeting. An annual meeting at ministerial level will follow in Durban, South Africa, in December.
