Mexico's participation in the high-level meeting of COP16/CMP6

In his speech at the high-level meeting of COP16/CMP6, the Secretary of Environment and Natural Resources of Mexico, Juan Rafael Elvira Quesada, said that "the political must be translated into concrete proposals" so that the impacts associated by the influence of climate are less.

The Secretary of Environment and Natural Resources noted that the future has caught up with us and it is possible to reach agreements. He recalled that in Mexico the rainy season caused economic and social damage, so he also emphasized the need to avoid a mismatch with the periods of the Kyoto Protocol commitments.

"Mexico has given itself fully and completely," he said, and took the opportunity to praise the work of the Mexican delegation for COP16/CMP6 and asked that “the political will be reflected in agreements arising in Cancun."

In addition, this meeting was attended by several heads of state who called for progress in the negotiations to reach an agreement.

Rafael Correa, president of Ecuador, said that finding the answer to Climate Change is not a technical problem, but political. The president defended technology transfer programs to implement mitigation measures and he decided against taking into account patents when survival of people is at stake.

In turn, Doris Leuthard and Jens Stoltenberg, Swiss President and Prime Minister of Norway, respectively, promoted measures involving both developed and developing countries.
