Luke McGreevy , Global Voices

From Qatar: COP18 UN Climate Change Conference 2012 in December 2012

COP18 (06/12/12) – Luke McGreevy from Global Voices talks about his work examining the G77 group of countries and their negotiating positions.

He says that it is interesting to see how such a diverse group operates and says it is interesting to watch the group in the plenary sessions and see what positions they take and also how they operate with other developing countries.

He says the biggest things he has had to get his head around is the sheer number work streams that are going on and also the intricacies of countries’ negotiating positions and tactics within the talks.
