UN climate conference: views from Indonesia

With the UN climate change conference taking place in Bali in December, the implications of current policies on climate justice will be an important consideration. Already several Indonesian NGOs have expressed their concerns at the current ‘mercantilist’ policies that dominate international policy making on this issue. Their full statement is reproduced here.

On 23 October, there was also a protest against carbon trading in Denpasar, capital of Bali. Top marks to whoever made a banner that read: “Our Forest is not a Carbon Toilet for Developed Countries.”
