Since all Parties are now going make “nationally determined contributions” towards mitigating climate change they will do so under Article 4.1 of the Convention, and the issue to be decided, by the ADP, will be what will be provided, and even more important, how these will be treated under Article 10 of the Convention - their assessment and review.

With relations between countries now being shaped by geo-economics rather than geo-politics, an emerging issue is to what extent the United States, China and India, all populous countries and top tier economies, see their national interest in giving a new meaning to words like “responsibility”, “development” and “growth” by shifting the focus from the twenty year old formula of burden-sharing for environmental degradation to modifying longer term trends in resource use, and developing a global vision for ‘sharing responsibility and prosperity’.

What to expect from Warsaw COP - World is suffering because of extreme weather events, COP 19 at Warsaw must address this issue: Chandra Bhushan, Deputy Director General, Centre for Science and Environment.

Watch this animated short film, Ozzy Ozone (an ozone molecule) and Alberta the Albatross take a voyage of discovery to find out exactly who and what is attacking the ozone layer, and how children can play an important role in making a difference. The Government of Barbados Ozone Programme developed the Ozzy Ozone character for use in their national awareness campaigns. This mascot has been used with awareness materials (ranging from posters to giveaway items such as pens, pencils, rulers, erasers), and as part of the Ozone Pledge programme where local companies trading in Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) signed on to assist in the phase out of ODS. It was adapted as part of the global UNEP campaign for Ozone Day 2000, and animated in this video that TVE International produced for UNEP.
