South Africa faces COP 17 balancing act

South Africa would need to ensure a balanced approach to its roles as a negotiating party and as the president of the seventeenth Conference of the Parties (COP 17), to be held in Durban late next month, Imbewu Sustainability Legal Specialist’s Dr Marie Parramon said on Tuesday.

At a national government level, International Relations and Cooperation Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane is the COP 17 president, and her department would be handling the logistics arrangements of the conference, as well as facilitating a successful outcome at COP 17.
