Date period
27 April 2011

SummaryThe Cancun decision of the UNFCCC, adopted at COP 16 in December 2010, invites interested parties to submit information and views relating to a work programme and a possible future forum on the economic and social impact of parties’ response measures to climate change. Responding to this call, ICTSD in April 2011 submitted a text to the UNFCCC, raising a number of issues that could be addressed by such a forum, as well as a few suggestions on how such a forum could operate.
