Clever tactics

by,Copenhagen needs a strong lead negotiator
/ A whole solution


The intergoovernmental Negotiating Committee met for the first time in Febuary 1991 just outsade Washington DC.

From the start, as today, the United States and India made progress difficult : at one point, the US representative, Bob Reinstein, refused to participate in a crucical meeting.

After insisting in many ways without success, I obtained a suite for an impromptu luncheon and invited all the relevant delegates, including Reinstein.

Using a trick learned from Koh, I appealed to their good manners and the rules of polite siplomacy to point out that they could not decline the chairman's invitation.

We had lunch, we forged an agreement and, fortunately, Estrada-oyuera had a credit card to over the bill.

A whole solution

by, Copenhagen needs a strong lead negotiator


The best option, Raul Estrada-oyuera think, would be to create a Committee of the Whole that would combines negotiations from the UNFCCC and Kyoto Protocol, which are currently run by separate committees with separate chairs.

It is still possible to do this, and it will remain possible until the conference starts.

The last preparatory meeting, in Barcelona on 2-6 November, will be an opportunity to consider this point.

If such a committee is formed, its elected chair would naturally lead the negotiations at the Copenhagen summit.

If this doesn't happen, the chance of making a good deal will be lessened.

Copenhagen needs a strong lead negotiator

Reaching an international climate agreement requires someone with exceptional skill, knowledge and diplomacy, says Kyoto chair Raul Estrada-oyuera.


As the professional diplomat who presided over tha Kyoto Protocol negotiations, it is clear to me how vital it is to have a good leader to steer negotiations at the Copenhagen conference on climate this December.

Time is short, and matters are very complex.

Although it may prove impossible to agree on quantified commitments at the meeting itself, a strong effort should be made for a deal that at lest sttls the main political objectives, with the aim of finalizing the agreements at subsidiary meetings in June 2010.


The United Nations Fremework Convention Climate Change (UNFCCC) currebtly involves 192 governments, making negotiation a major exercise in diplomacy.

To come to an agreement, the process needs a well established leader who is fair, forceful, committed and well informed on the subject under debate and on the aspirations and bottom lines of all parties.
