North South Dialogue on Climate Change

Project Title: North South Dialogue on Climate Change
Type of Project Climate Change Workshops
Duration:   January 1997 - December 1997
Status:   Complete
Partner Organizations:   BCAS, Government of the Netherlands, Government of Germany, Government of USA, Government of Canada, OECD/CTI, European Union, Pacific Institute-USA, WHRC-USA, IIEC-USA, ENDA-Senegal, COPPE-Brazil, SEI-Sweden, German watch-Germany, TERI-India, DA-India, Southern Centre-Zimbabwe, National Autonomous University of Mexico, IVM-Netherlands.  
Key words: Greenhouse gas emissions, Measures to reduce GHG emissions, Partnership  
Main Objective:   BCAS organized three regional workshops in Africa, Latin America and Asia and the results were shared in another workshop during the third conference of parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).  
Brief Description: BCAS organized regional workshops in Asia, Africa, and Latin America by bringing together researchers, experts, representatives from government and NGOs to discuss ongoing practices by various countries in these regions on reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The workshops were as follows: in Dakar, Senegal in July 1997, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in September 1997, in Dhaka, Bangladesh in November 1997 and the final workshop in Kyoto, Japan in December 1997.   This was an initiative to promote dialogues between public and private organizations of the North and South on climate change issues. It stimulates new partnerships and promotes technological co-operation as the international community moves toward and beyond the third conference of parties (COP3, Kyoto, Japan).   It was derived from these workshops that ongoing practices to reduce GHG emissions were inadequate and the countries need to adopt concerted strategies.  
Output: Dialogues of the international workshops were produced in the form of reports.  A summary report titled ‘Good Practices, Technology Innovation and New Partnership for Sustainable Development: Challenges and Opportunities in implementing the Climate Convention’ was presented by BCAS during the third Conference of Parties (COP 3) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) held in Kyoto, Japan in December  1997.
