NEW DELHI: Ahead of the UN climate change meet in Cancun, representatives including ministers from over 50 nations will gather here for a two-day conference beginning tomorrow to deliberate on mechanisms to ensure clean technologies to mitigate impacts of global warming .

The “informal ministerial dialogue on Climate Change: Technology Mechanism” will be held in collaboration with Mexico which is host to the global UN climate summit and the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA).

The meet would discuss and seek a consensus on the design of a global technology mechanism for development, deployment and delivery of clean technologies in the context of climate change to developing countries.

The ministerial dialogue 2010 will be a follow up of the high-level conferences on climate change meet on technology held in the capital in October.

The UN climate change meet will be held from November 29 to December 10 in Cancun, Mexico, a year after the nations failed to seal a legally binding deal to replace the Kyoto Protocol, which expires in 2012, at Copenhagen .
