Media Advisory - United Nations Climate Change Conference - Montreal 2005
- REMINDER TO THE MEDIA -
OTTAWA, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ - The United Nations Climate Change Conference will be held in Montreal from November 28 to December 9, 2005, at the Palais des congres de Montreal. The conference will include the 11th Conference of the Parties (COP 11) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the first meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (MOP 1). The Protocol came into effect on February 16, 2005. Therefore, this first meeting of the Parties to the Protocol represents a milestone in global efforts to address climate change and the effects of global warming. It clearly demonstrates a sense of common purpose by engaging the world to pursue and enhance efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Some 7,000 participants from around the world - government, business/industry, non-governmental and intergovernmental organizations - are expected for the conference. A series of linked events will also attract thousands of people and present "a World of Solutions" dealing with new technologies and business opportunities, climate change impacts on indigenous peoples, and ways to involve youth and civil society. For more information regarding the conference and media accreditation, please visit the web site of the UN Climate Change Secretariat at http://unfccc.int . Accreditation is strictly reserved for members of the press - print media, photo, radio, TV, film and news agencies - who fully meet UN media accreditation requirements. The deadline for pre-conference media accreditation is November 2, 2005. Media should be accredited with the UN Secretariat in order to avoid any delay with the on-site registration in Montreal. The Palais des congres convention site will include a press centre with working space for journalists and an International Broadcast Centre to provide host broadcasting services to radio and television networks. It should be noted that a host broadcaster has also been appointed. Each media outlet is responsible for its own hotel accommodation.
