Day 4

General overview

The negotiations to create an international green fund indicate that it would have a more equitable governing body, although it is unlikely that its design is ready before the end of the 16 Conference of the Parties (COP16), said Adrian Fernandez, President of the National Ecology Institute of Mexico (INE), in a morning news conference.

The International Symposium on Climate Change: research relevant to Mexico, took place in the Polyforum-Forum 100, where researchers from different institutions from the United States and Great Britain discussed about information systems to take decisions about mitigation and adaptation with regards to carbon emission and deforestation.

Waste from the agave plant from which tequila is obtained can be used as an alternative source of energy. This was the main issue of the afternoon conference Tequila: waste and renewable energy, which took place at Pavilion Mexico, in Cancunmesse convention center. Afterwards, attendees sampled this Mexican-denomination liquor.

Officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE), Mexico, reported that during the first six days of operation of the Climate Change Village, the response from the public and civil organizations was positive. On average there have been 5 to 10 events sponsored by civic organizations, and attendance has been considerable.

In an interview, Mexican legislators Alberto Cárdenas Jiménez and César Daniel González Madruga, explained the importance and contribution of the legislature in COP16/CMP6 negotiations. Both congressmen are in Cancun to attend the Inter-Parliamentary Union which will begin on December 6.
