Seoul to Host Top-Level Climate Change Meeting

Seoul will host the 2012 Pre-COP Ministerial Meeting on Climate Change from October 21-23rd. The meeting will set the groundwork for the 18th United Nations Conference of the Parties (COP 18), to be held in Qatar from November 26th-December 7th.

Seoul expects to welcome 300 participants from 50 countries for the October Pre-COP meeting, where they will discuss how COP 18 will proceed. Participants will include government secretaries, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) secretariats, and members of non-government organisations.

“The Korean capital is proud to be playing a significant role in COP 18 via the Pre-COP Ministerial Meeting,” said Seoul Convention Bureau vice-president Maureen O’Crowley.

“Seoul is strongly committed to green growth, and to be able to contribute to this high-level meeting where the outcomes will have important ramifications for our planet is indeed an honor.”
