IPS-TerraViva at Cancun COP 16/CMP 6

IPS Inter Press Service (http://www.ips.org/) is sending an international contingent of journalists from Africa, South Asia and the Americas to report from COP 16 in Cancun. The team will produce a daily IPS TerraViva online conference newspaper, and material in English, Spanish and French for the IPS news service (http://ipsnews.net) and the Tierramerica (http://tierramerica.net) communication platform.

IPS reporting will reflect the agency’s focus on the South and the role of civil society, with particular emphasis on the activity of non-governmental organisations, adaptation in poor countries and the gender dimensions of climate change. Visit www.ipsnews.net/climate_change/ and http://www.ipsnoticias.net/_focus/cclimatico/ to access IPS reporting on climate change before, during and after COP 16.
