ECO Is ..

the definitive source of what's going on at the climate negotiations - it's the newsletter government negotiators read to find what's going on in the talks as a whole; and it's the newsletter journalists read to find out what's really going on at the negotiations.

Produced by the Climate Action Network (with more than 100 major Non- Government Organisations from around the world), ECO has leading independent scientists and political analysts writing for it, giving you unrivalled access to the negotiations and what they really mean.

The UN Climate Summit in Berlin next march heralds the practical start of the agreement signed at the 1992 Rio Earth summit. ECO gets you up to speed on the latest developments in the hottest environmental issue ever- climate change.
