I think we interacted with a company called Ramtor re. the publication you refer to. We
put an advert and a page of text in both the 2001 and 2002 publications - and paid for it.
We have not yet decided about 2003.
I am copying this to my colleague - Dr Elaine Jones, Tyndall's Business Liaison Manager -
since it was she who negotiated this on our behalf and handled all the correspondence
[Elaine - could you give Neil a brief run-down of the rates/content etc. as we used it?
Elaine - do we have a spare copy we could send to Neil?]
Certainly quite a few heavyweight businesses and research establishments advertised. And
it gets to all delegates. How effective it is of course is a matter of judgement - I can't
give you any hard evidence about this.

START was contacted today by a firm called Entico about a publication called "Responding
to Climate Change" that they are preparing for distribution at COP9 (see below). He said
that this is an "official" publication that is produced for the UNFCCC Secretariat that
get's high visibility at the CoPs. He wants to know if START would be interested in
being included in the publication (with a focus on AIACC). By this he means purchase
advertising space as well as to provide a paper or case study that would be included in
The Tyndall Centre is listed as a partner. Do you know anything about Entico and their
publication? Is this worth learning more about and considering as a possible way to
inform more people (COP delegates in particular) about AIACC?
I looked at their web page briefly. Under case studies, research and training, the
entries include Columbia University's Earth Institute and a Cambridge-MIT
collaboration. So it looks like they have some solid programs that have decided to use
them for outreach. But I really don't know anything about them.
If you have any opinions I would be glad to have them.

Following our conversation earlier today, and as promised, I include the attachment
regarding the publication 'Responding to Climate Change' for COP9 in December 2003.
As we discussed, the publication will go into the hands of all the delegates and
attendees at the meeting as a window on the major and most innovative players in the
climate change arena. This is really about the communication of effective climate change
networks and solutions, and to provide conference-wide profiling and support of those
organisations taking part at the conference.
The publication is an official observer at the meeting, and thus takes a high profile to
promote the work of the organisations we work with. This will also be the case for the
side events that we will run for select members of our partners. For the START
secretariat, and in addition to the advertisement, we would also like to invite you to
be involved with a contribution to the editorial of the publication, in the form of a
case study or white paper (approximately 800) in order to build in more detail the
solutions you present.
All the materials in the publication will also be presented on the associated dedicated
website (www.rtcc.org), with links to all the partners involved, and driving traffic
through to their websites through active links. RTCC 2002 is still on-line for you to
help substantiate our credentials and other partnerships.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I thank you in advance and
look forward to speaking with you on Monday.
