The Durban Climate Conference provides a new opportunity to deliver a binding international agreement for all countries by 2015. The success of this endeavor, however, rests on the actions taken in the near-term to close the mitigation gap and ensure effective implementation in key countries around the world.

In this seminar Ms Morgan will address key questions including, what were the key dynamics for the Durban outcome to emerge? How are some of the major players reacting to the climate problem? What are the choices for Australia in the coming years?
