2012 Special Broadcasts / COP 18 on Climate Change

The 18th Conference of the Parties (COP 18) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will take place from November 26 to December 7 in Doha, Qatar’s capital city. There, world’s leaders will discuss the measures to address this crisis, one of the most serious crises facing humankind nowadays. So far, industrialized countries, historically responsible for climate change, have not paid their debt and have focused through the years in promoting "false solutions", and have tried to weaken the global multilateral framework that should address climate changes. Real World Radio will cover this COP 18 on Climate Change, updating regularly about the development of the negotiations and presenting the voices of social movements and organizations.
