CSE Annual South Asian Media Briefing Workshop on Climate Change, 2013

New Delhi, India

September 18-19, 2013

In May this year, the Mauna Loa recording station in Hawaii, run by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, came up with a startling discovery: carbon dioxide had breached the 400 ppm mark for the first time ever.

As we proceed in the 'danger zone', the world needs to get its act together and sign a legally binding climate treaty which will push for preventive action. The 'blind' negotiations continue this year in Poland, as urgency of collective action and responsibility rests on the world’s shoulders.

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) organised its annual two-day briefing for South Asian journalists in September, before the deliberations for the 2015 treaty begin at this year’s Conference of Parties (CoP) in Poland. The briefing brought to the table the latest in negotiating stances, politics, science and impacts of climate change from all across South Asia.

Journalists from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Myanmar and Sri Lanka, participated in the briefing.
