WATCH THIS! NGO Newsletter #7: COP-19 around the corner: What’s at stake?

Not an easy goal in a country that is dominated by coal power. Not an easy goal to negotiate when the world’s largest coal producing companies are discussing the role of coal in the global economy in the context of the climate change agenda at the same time at the ‘International Coal & Climate Summit’. Although Poland is not expected to deliver on concrete climate targets for the 2015 climate agreement, there are a number of important topics at stake that need to be addressed to pave the way for a comprehensive, far reaching future climate deal.
