About this grant

The Third World Network Berhad was established in 1987 as an international network of organizations and individuals involved in research and policy analysis of global issues and their impact on developing countries. With this grant increase, the grantee will inform developing country negotiators about the implications of climate finance proposals being put forth for consideration at the United Nations climate change negotiations to be held in Mexico in December 2010. A series of briefing documents and workshops will be prepared for the developing country negotiators, with a particular focus on carbon trading as a mechanism for addressing global mitigation and adaptation costs related to climate change.
