UN climate change talks in Bangkok

The UN-sponsored negotiating session on climate change is scheduled to begin March 31 at the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (Escap) in Bangkok, with more than 1,000 senior environment officials from 190 countries worldwide expected to participate, according to a senior Thai Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment official.

"Thailand will host the upcoming talks after it has relentlessly taken actions on global warming in the past and they've been recognised globally," Thai News Agency quoted Dr Kasemsun Chinnavaso, secretary-general of Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning, as saying Saturday.


The five-day will carry forward a set of decisions called the "Bali Roadmap", adopted at the UN Climate Change Conference held in the Indonesian island last December.

Talks on further commitments for Kyoto Protocol Parties will include considering possible tools available to industrialised countries to reach future emission reductions.

The two processes are set to culminate in a strengthened and effective international climate change deal, to be clinched at the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in 2009.
