"The Climate Negotiations and the Gift from the Global South"


With a focus on Bangladesh in the UN led global climate negotiations, this paper aims to elucidate how the Global South is positioned within the process. While the many internal divisions within the countries constituting the South makes difficult any coherent or unified position, this talk highlights the evolution of the issue of loss and damage within the process.  I end by suggesting that the idea of loss and damage constitutes a kind of inter-generational gift from the Global South.
