On the eve of the formal opening of the high-level sessions of the ongoing climate change talks in Cancun, stakeholders and experts have identified fair trade and effective communication as some of the key preconditions for any robust and sustainable adaptation and mitigation initiatives against the impacts of climate change. Dr. Hannah Reid, researcher at the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) on Sunday told the Information and Communication Service of the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) in Cancun that since climate change is a global issue “no segment of the population ought to be left out of the negotiation processes”. She was speaking on the sidelines of the “Development and Climate Days” of COP16. The Development and Climate Days event has been a feature of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties (COP) since COP2 in New Delhi, India, according to Reid.
