Policy Analysis and Negotiating Support for African Francophone LDC Negotiators

With support from the Global Campaign for Climate Action (GCCA), the Francophone support project aimed to provide support to African Francophone climate negotiators in the French language in the lead-up to and during the UNFCCC negotiations in the latter half of 2009. Climate Analytics provided real-time scientific analysis and policy support for Francophone developing country negotiators through a dedicated Francophone Climate Policy Analyst.
