If you have limited time, i would come to the COP for the second week, when the high level segment will take place.  However, there will be some great side events during the first week.

Colleagues: I won't be at COP, but plan to follow events from Montreal. My wife, Cristina Romanelli, works for the CBD and she leaves for India on Thursday. I am pleased that there will be special focus on marine biodiversity this year.

You're right Kay... This group is for anyone interested especially in COP11, whether they want to network and plan meetings in India, or just be in touch with people who are at COP11 in person.

Hi... not all of us will BE in Hyderabad... but many of us will be covering the COP 11 from bases outside India.  Surely your don't have to BE in India to join the group.

Hi... Thank you for all the media links... 

We are using printers in Hyderabad to print 2000 copies of a 20 page booklet on information about Environmental Programmes in South Africa... which will be available on the South Africa exhibit. Collecting up the information on all our programmes has been quite a mission...but very exciting...
