Like Copenhagen, high expectations at Cancun despite the low-key hype. AOSIS continues to press ahead.

My expertise is on trade and climate change issues. Lots of years of concentration on trade law and policy, investment law through a sustainable development lens. Hot topics for Cancun include the use of trade border measures to further climate goals (border carbon adjustment).

We operate Africa's first validated REDD project in Kenya under CCB, have a REDD methodology in 2nd validation under VCS and have sold more REDD credits in the commercial marketplace than any other company. I have visited forest communities throughout Africa to explore the potential of REDD and can speak to the opportunities and challenges of REDD+ project implementation in Africa from first hand experience.

I am so much looking forward. It is my first UNFCCC Conference and desprite the negative prediction, I am very curious.

The World Future Council will have an information stand and will be there on two side events:

In the first week - in person of Stefan Biskamp, WFC Director Future Finance, and Randy Hayes, WFC Director US - we present our proposal to solve the funding problem in financing the renewable energy transition in less industrialized countries with the help of new Special Drawing Rights (SDRs). The WFC demonstrates that in this way it is feasible to raise USD100bn per year immediately without increasing inflation or debt.
Date: Wed, 01 Dec 2010
Time: 16:45-18:15
Room: Águila

The second week there will be Stefan Schurig, Director of WFC Climate and Energy Commission, Prof. Herbert Girardet, WFC Co-Founder, Axel Michaelowa (Perspectives Climate Change) and and Maike Sippel (University of Stuttgart) on the concept of Regenerative Cities – more than sustainable urban development and on questions such as How can we assure that cities take responsibility for their ecological footprints? How can cities become truly regenerative places?
Date: Wed, 08 Dec 2010
Time: 20:15-21:45
Room: Sandia

Press Conference: 07-Dec-2010 at 12:30-13:00 in room "Luna" on the topic of Regenerative Cities

Looking forward meeting you all,

NABU - The Nature and Conservation Union is a national organisation with around 500.000 members and supporters in Germany which has worked in the field of energy and climate policies for a around a decade now. We focus both on ecosystem based approaches to mitigation and adaptation as well as on development of renewable energies in a ecological sound way. I personally follow the UNFCCC negotiations since the 2007 Bali climate change conference. Carsten

We will be in Cancun with a group of gender and climate experts from around the world, preparing for several side events, roundtables on gender and climate change and so on. Hope to see you there.
