U.S. Delegation to Climate Change Negotiations

The United States Delegation negotiations on climate change, scheduled to take place in Bonn, Germany July 16-27, will be led by Under Secretary of State for Global Affairs, Paula Dobriansky. The resumption of the sixth session of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP-6.5) follows the suspension of negotiations last November in The Hague. The high-level segment of COP-6.5 will take place July 19-22.

The United States takes the issue of climate change seriously, and will work constructively under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. The United States is working with our allies to develop an effective and science-based approach to addressing global climate change.
