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.

Raul Estrada-oyuera own role in climate negotiations began with the Second World Climate Conference, held in Geneva in 1990, where Estrada-oyuera was Argentina's representative and the de facto speaker for the Group of Latin America and Caribbean countries.

A graduate in law, Estrada-oyuera had joined the foreign service in 1966 and participated in a number of multilateral negotiations, including on environmental issues.

Diplomats at the 1990 confereencewere, surprisingly, not all owed to attend the science segment devoted to the first assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Before the conference, from Estrada-oyuera desk in Buenos Aires I had to send junior colleagues to attend meetings they barely understood in Geneva to get a handle on the IPCC's activities.

Eventually Estrada-oyuera was lucky enough to recruit a good sciebtific team, led by Osvaldo Canziani, to educate myself and Estrada-oyuera cokkeagues.
