Dear subscribers to climate-l,

motivated by our research for a book on the Kyoto Protocol, Sebastian
Oberthuer and I have made an attempt to envision some concrete proposals on
how the EU - the only potential leader in the field - might proceed in
order to breath new life into the FCCC and the post-Kyoto process.

The support of the Heinrich-Boell-Foundation in Germany enabled us to
publish a policy paper and to organise a few workshops with interested
players.

The first of these will take place in Washington DC on 14 October
(contact Sascha Mueller-Kraenner, sascha.washington@boell.de), the second will
take place in Bonn at COP 5, November 3 at 1 pm (please consult the FCCC
website, http://www.unfccc.de, for the venue in the Hotel Maritim) and a
third workshop will be held in Brussels at a date and venue still to be
decided (contact Frieder Wolf-Buchert, Wolf@Boell.De).

The policy paper entitled "Breaking the Impasse: Forging an EU Leadership
Initiative on Climate Change" may be ordered from the Boell Foundation
(contact Joerg Haas, Haas@BOELL.DE). From Thursday it will be possible to
download the paper from the website of the Wuppertal Institute
(http://www.wupperinst.org). Copies will furthermore be available at COP 5 from the
authors (there will be an exhibit in the LISZT CORRIDOR of the Hotel
Maritim).
