Representatives of 188 nations will meet in Poznan, Poland this December as part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). This meeting will mark the midpoint of their negotiations on a new treaty to replace the Kyoto Protocol, which began last year in Indonesia with the announcement of the Bali Action Plan. The goal of the Poznan meeting is to outline an ambitious schedule of talks that will culminate in Copenhagen in 2009 with agreement to a global emissions pact to take effect in 2012. The Poznan climate conference is the 14th Conference of the Parties (COP-14) to the Framework Convention, and the 4th Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol.
