12/07/2009: EPA to Host U.S. Center Events at the Copenhagen Climate Negotiations

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will host 13 events at the annual Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which will be held at the U.S. Center in Copenhagen. The center will provide an interactive forum to highlight the strong steps being taken at home and the United States’ international leadership role to combat global climate change.

EPA staff will be participating in and hosting side events throughout the conference, from December 7 until December 18. Topics to be covered include:

  • U.S. government and state climate efforts
  • U.S. fuel efficiency policy
  • Climate change and air quality
  • Greenhouse gas inventories, measurement and reporting
  • Short-lived climate forcers and their impact on the Arctic
  • Impacts of, and adaptation responses to, climate change

For those of us who couldn’t or shouldn’t go to COP15, here’s a feel for how the US is officially presented.
