UK to Take 45 Delegates to Climate Conference despite no Deal Being Anticipated

According to a latest report, Britain is going to take its 45 delegates to a United Nations climate change conference. It is despite the fact that there are no expectations of breakthrough on a deal to cut carbon emissions.

Ed Davey, the Energy and Climate Change Secretary, will lead the big group at the 19th annual Conference of the Parties (CoP) to the United Nations Framework Convention. The meeting on Climate Change will be held in the Polish capital Warsaw.

Whitehall officials described this year's conference as `just another step'. They also claim that no or little progress regarding the topic of carbon emission is likely.

About 46 representatives were sent to the conference last year, which was held in Doha, Qatar. The government spent about £280,000 to send them in the event. Out of the total shelled out money, about £49,000 was spent on flights, £126,000 on hotels and £103,000 on other miscellaneous expenses.

According to sources, delegates approved to sign a global agreement on climate change during the last meeting in Doha.

As of now, the world leaders are not anticipated to propose any new emission-cutting targets until before a climate summit in New York, which will be held in the month of September next year. This summit will be arranged by Ban Ki Moon, who is the UN Secretary-General.
