Outreach from UNFCCC COP-16 in Cancún



In order to capture the many different voices represented at the climate change negotiations, Stakeholder Forum produced Outreach, a multi-stakeholder magazine on environment and sustainable development, from the conference floor of the UNFCCC Conference of the Parties-16 (COP16) in Cancún, Mexico.

As one of the four publications officially recognized by the UNFCCC Secretariat, Outreach acted as a conduit for the multifarious opinions of stakeholders, including regional and local governments, women, indigenous peoples, trade unions, industry, youth and Southern NGOs.

Outreach contributors were diverse and represented an array of voices; from youth groups working to improve Chinese and US environmental relations amongst young people, to the President of the Republic of Nauru on climate impacts across the Pacific, and the opinions of activists such as Sunita Narain. As well as harnessing the opinions of stakeholders, Outreach also allowed space for key thinkers and climate experts to unpack issues of relevance to the negotiations.

Throughout COP16, Outreach was distributed daily as a hard copy magazine to delegates and civil society representatives in the corridors of the conference venue and at the civil society side event venue. Online, Outreach was also distributed as an html email to a range of list serves to reach those unable to attend the conference. Outreach articles could also be accessed online at and continue to be available at this address.
