An informal meeting to break the ice

Less than one month before the next UNFCCC formal meeting, countries met in an informal conference from 2 to 4 May in Petersberg, near Bonn. Organised by Germany and Mexico, the Petersberg Climate Dialogue involved environment and climate ministers from 45 key nations. They discussed the main issues such as mitigation actions, financing, reforestation and technology transfers to developing countries, with the aim to decide the next concrete steps in the run-up to the COP-16 in CancĂșn (Mexico),
The conference didn't adopt any formal decision but at least revived the international debate on climate change.
