Day 3: Breaking news from COP17

By John Parnell
RTCC in Durban

Welcome to hot and humid Durban for day three of COP17. The tempo is beginning to lift around the conference as delegates acclimatise to their new surroundings and its time for the conversations to turn from the weather to the climate.

Yesterday we heard the next instalment of the UNFCCC climate change talks will be in Qatar, an announcement that caused quite a stir on the showfloor. It’s probably fair to say that that piece of news eclipsed any headlines from the talks themselves.

Now it’s time to turn our attention back to Durban.

@rtcc_tierney will be exploring the world of REDD and its future in the global fight against climate change.

@rtcc_edk will be manning the studio once again, stay tuned to Climate Change TV for all the latest interviews, COP16 president Patricia Espinosa dropped by yesterday.

We’ll also bring you our second webcast of the week – the focus today is Canada and the USA – what are they bringing to COP17? We’re live at 1230 SA time, 1030 GMT.

Meanwhile I’ll be investigating where the $100bn for the green Climate Fund might come from, stay up to date @rtcc_john.
