At the last UN summit in Bali, the negotiations on climate change reached a deadlock, crystallizing the debate on the issue of North/South equity. In partnership with the Foundation Nicolas Hulot, the Environmental Development Action in the Third World (ENDA) and the Climate Action Network France (RAC) and with the financial support from DGCS (Italian cooperation) and the Foundation of the Prince Albert II of Monaco, IUCN is facilitating a North/South dialogue between the EU and Africa.

Bringing together Monique Barbut, Chair of the Global Environment Facility, Brice Lalonde, French Ambassador for Climate change, Morgane Créach, of Climate Action Network France, and Mamouda Moussa Na-Abou, from ENDA Environmental Development Action in the Third World, Julia Marton-Lefèvre, Director General of IUCN, discussed the outcomes of the dialogue so far and the way ahead.
