European Regional Workshop on Article 6 of the Convention
Santa Clara Conference Centre
The European Regional Workshop on Article 6 of the Convention, organized in response to a request by the Conference of Parties at its thirteenth session (Bali, December 2007) (decision 9/CP.13), will contribute to the intermediate review of progress in 2010, to evaluate its effectiveness and identify emerging gaps and opportunities.
The discussions at the workshop were expected to contribute to assessing the level of implementation of the New Delhi work programme in the region, identifying needs and persistent gaps, with a view to making recommendations on how to enhance the level of implementation and to contribute to the interim review process.
Purpose and objectives
Over 40 participants representing 23 countries and several intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations shared experiences and good practices in developing and implementing national education and outreach strategies and activities, and discussed the importance of such activities in supporting a new climate change agreement. After 2 and a half days of plenary sessions, working groups and social events, participants came up with recommending a list of issues that could be considered in supporting further the implementation of Article 6 and the New Delhi work programme in the European region.
Furthermore, the workshop contributed to a publication on best practices for the implementation of the New Delhi work programme in the European region. The publication was promoted in the EU pavillon in Copenhagen, at COP 15.
