Romina Picolotti, Argentina’s Minister of Environment, authored the guest article entitled “Fast and Furious: Early Agreement on Fair and Equitable Financing is Key to Post-2012 Treaty.” She argues that successful climate change policy implementation requires a strong financial mechanism for promoting technology innovation and diffusion to developing countries, identifies features of a successful mechanism, and suggests reaching agreement, now, on such a financial mechanism.

The 49th issue of MEA Bulletin also includes reports on recent meetings of the: Bureau of the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the Stockholm Convention; Ramsar Standing Committee; Convention on Biological Diversity’s COP9; and Biodiversity Liaison Group.

MEA Bulletin is a publication created by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), in cooperation with the United Nations Environment Programme’s Division of Environmental Law and Conventions (UNEP DELC).
