What do you think can be accomplished in Durban?
Two crucial things to bring to the climate talks in Durban - an umbrella and a good pair of walking shoes. The venue is very spread out and it's raining - with more rain predicted the next two days
Tip for journalists: Bring a really big umbrella with you to the Durban conference centre, and you'll find plenty of delegates willing to be interviewed if only you'll help them through the rain!
Just had a nice chat with members of the Libyan government delegation (thanks to my umbrella). Even if the government's changed, the climate policy hasn't - the same people are still working on it, they report. Mitigation policy hasn't sunk to grassroots level yet, though - they were waiting for a private car to leave the venue despite an array of buses available......
Can't find the media center? It's not marked, or at least much. Head to the basement of the ICC. If you think you're in the car park, you're there - just look for the International Broadcasting sign.
