My experience as head of the CI delegation

  • Many CI delegates were uncertain of what to do during the summit. My job was give them

    • A social frame

    • A purpose for the days eg. assign meetings

  • I chaired daily meetings for all consumer participants, morning and late afternoon during the whole COP – to plan, share experiences and evaluate

  • Daily blogs for benefit of CI members was a success

  • Close cooperation between my own organization and the CI secretariat was crucial - before, during and after the summit

What did we learn about engagement with industry and stakeholders during the COP ?

  • Dialogue should be established in due time before the event

  • Our positions should be ultra clear.

  • Focus also on authorities/governments – Consumers members on national delegations is important

  • Common goals and strategies must be developed with other organisations – do not stand alone

  • Follow-up after the event is necessary
