Freshwater Action Network
– grassroots influencing on water and sanitation

It changed my perception…

Eklavya Prasad is representing FANSA in Bonn Climate Change Talks. He writes his first day experience from Bonn Climate Change Conference 21 – 25 May 2012. 

My interaction with Karin Lexen and Karin Glaumann of Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) has really changed my perception regarding the Bonn Climate Change Talks. Karin Lexen's experience and incessant work in this area helped me a great deal to develop a comprehension about the negotiations. The interaction brought all three of us on the same page and working hereon should be exciting. For next couple of days, we have developed a basic functional framework, and I am sure that too will evolve as we move ahead...
However, my participation was with limited access. The first session that I entered did not allow me to qualify for the session. Hence, I was left with no option than to step out of the room, find myself a place where I could sit and plan my day.
Read Eklavya's full article with insights and learning from the session in which contact group were to discuss on issues relating to agriculture.
The 36th sessions of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) and of the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA), the fifteenth session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action under the Convention (AWG-LCA), the seventeenth session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Further Commitments for Annex I Parties under the Kyoto Protocol (AWG-KP) and the first session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP) takes place concurrently from 14 to 25 May. All sessions are held at the Maritim Hotel in Bonn, Germany.
