HSI media contacts at Bonn Climate Change talks in the lead-up to the Paris Agreement 

19th October, 2015                

Humane Society International (HSI) is continuing to campaign for an international climate change agreement that will effectively protect tropical forests around the world and consequently reduce global emissions and save global biodiversity.

HSI will be fully represented at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP) in Bonn, Germany between October 19 to 23, putting our case for strong measures to retain and protect in-tact global rainforests as the world moves towards the Paris Agreement.

HSI will be represented at the Conference by climate change and biodiversity advisor Peg Putt who has prepared an HSI Special Bulletin entitled, “Climate Change – Forest Carbon Counts Part 2”, making the case for significantly increased forest protection which will be distributed to thousands of diplomats, negotiators, civil servants, scientists, NGOs and media before and during the UNFCCC meeting. 

This publication is the second of three parts that will be produced between now and after the Paris Agreement, explaining, as the Special Bulletin by-line suggests, that “REDD+ is too big to ignore”.

The two most recent publications and four other HSI climate change Special Bulletins, entitled ‘Call for Truth in Targets’ Parts 1 – 4, tabled at previous UNFCCC meetings, can be found at www.hsi.org.au/go/to/25/climate-change

Peg Putt will be available for comment/interviews during the entire conference, at the contact details below. Biodiversity advisor Alistair Graham is available for comment in Hobart if Peg Putt is unavailable.
