Whether it is reporting on the negotiations, hosting and presenting at side events or serving as a member of the Canadian Delegation, IISD will have a strong presence throughout this two-week, international conference.

The IISD team will join over 10,000 delegates from 189 countries in Montreal for negotiations and meetings on how to further efforts to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for the impacts of climate change.

One of IISD's key activities is the authoritative and neutral coverage of the negotiations through the Earth Negotiations Bulletin. The ENB will provide the international community with comprehensive daily coverage of the COP-11/MOP-1 negotiations and selected side events in English, French and Spanish, including text, audio and photos. These are made freely available on our website mere hours after the close of negotiations
