2010   Lots of Action:

  • Formal operations as an incorporated entity, representing NGOs who can't afford to attend UN related climate meetings in Washington, DC, New York and perhaps other cities.

  • Climate Calendar  A list of Climate Meetings Climate Caucus plans to attend (to be posted in the end of the year)

2009 was a great year for Climatecaucus.net. 

We helped developed a statement by CoNgo to be used at COP-15 in December, 2009.  We also developed surveys to determine the future direction of ClimateCaucus, made plans for the incorporation of the NGO  and determined a main function, which is to represent NGOs who can't attend meetings on Climate Change in New York and Washington, DC.
