  • Leaving on a high! The 8th blog from COP 23 How time flies when you are enjoying yourself though somehow the end came almost too suddenly and as I walked away from the Bonn Zone on Friday afternoon and left behind the memories of all the great people I had met during the previous 2 weeks, I felt a distinct tinge of sadness.

There has been talk of 25000 expected at the COP but it seemed relatively quiet during week one. All that has now changed and the queue at the German Pavilion ...
  • A weak end to the weekend! The sun hasn’t shined yet during the 8 days that I have been in Bonn, at least not as far as I am aware although it is fair to say that in the Conference complex it is hard to know what is going on outside. At least the journey to and from my Airbnb has ...
  • Gore and More – Oliver’s Blog from Bonn The Indonesian and Fiji Pavilions have played their part in some of the more noteworthy events that I have attended. On Thursday Hashim Djojohadikusumo and Willie Smits gave an excellent joint presentation on their agroforestry scheme which is effectively about restoring deforested areas in Indonesia using sugar palm planted in a mix of other trees. ...
  • Side Events and yet more Side Events! The really impressive point coming out of this COP so far is the need for us all to work together collaboratively to stem global warming. A side event yesterday, with many speakers from Small Island Developing States (SIDS), entitled Disappearing Islands, highlighted the issues, many of which appeared in the film ‘Troubled Waters’ which I ...
  • From the Rhone to the Rhine! The first of a series of blogs from Oliver Maurice from COP 23 in Bonn The journey from the Rhone Valley, where I live, to the Rhine, on which Bonn is located, has been a long excursion and perhaps not the most auspicious start to what is going to be a very busy fortnight. 3 days ...
