Accra Climate Change Conference - August 2008

Accra Climate Change Conference - August 2008


Suggested dress code

In consultation with the Host Country and responding to numerous queries from participants, the Climate Change secretariat would like to propose that the dress code for participants at the upcoming conference be adapted to take into account the tropical weather in Ghana.

Mr. Yvo de Boer, Executive Secretary, has exempted secretariat staff from wearing jackets and ties after the opening ceremony. The secretariat invites participants to follow suit. The secretariat hopes that amending the dress code will allow participants to conduct discussions in a more comfortable environment, as well as limit the use of air conditioning and thereby reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
