Preparations for the 18th session of COP 18 to the UFCCC

The 3194th Environment Council meeting took place on 25 October 2012 in Luxembourg and adopted conclusions relating to Rio+20 and Doha. Regarding Rio+ 20, the Council adopted conclusions on the outcome and follow-up to the Conference, which was held in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012, looking at work to be done both at global and EU level.
These conclusions constitute the first official position by the Council on the assessment of the outcome of the Rio+20 Conference. They also aim at sending a political message that reaffirms the commitment of the EU and its member states to the Rio+20 follow-up process and provide guidance on a number of issues that are going to be discussed in the coming months.
The Council also adopted conclusions in preparation for the 18th session of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the 8th session of the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol, which will take place in Doha (Qatar), from 26 November to 7 December 2012. These conclusions set out the main elements of the EU position and assess progress made regarding the so-called "Durban package".
