Blog: A day of conversations, waiting and late reading at COP21

It is 21.00. The Committee of Paris is about to start. This is COP President Fabius’ construction for the second week of negotiations. At least once per day all delegates are gathered in the big plenary and observers are welcomed in the room (and on webcast mind you). The purpose is to update everyone on where the negotiations are – allowing comments from countries. This time all we expect is the delivery of a new version of the negotiation text. All night they negotiated, until 5 and 8 in the morning I am told.
