(Apologies for cross-postings)

TERI is organizing a special event at COP-6 on 17 November 2000 (1 pm to 3 pm). The theme of this workshop is

CDM: Leading the Climate Solution?

COP-6 marks a critical milestone in the process of negotiations for an international climate regime. The CDM is a key element in the operationalisation of the Kyoto Protocol, but several issues remain unresolved. Significant among these are the incorporation of sustainable development benefits, the choice of baselines, the possible advantages of a unilateral CDM structure and secondary markets, and the broader question of developing country commitments.

TERI will present its viewpoints on these issues and examine the role of the CDM in achieving consensus and cooperation. The focus will be on issues faced by developing countries, and the search for an equitable solution to the challenge of climate change. This will be analyzed in detail by a panel of eminent climate change experts. The panel discussion and the following open session are expected to provide a stimulating exchange of views that synthesizes diverse standpoints and opinions.

The workshop will be held on Friday, 17 November 2000 during 1:00 - 3:00 PM in the Netherlands Congress Centre, The Hague.
