West Africa discusses human rights-climate change link

Experts and government representatives from 15 West African nations opened talks Tuesday on the effects of climate change on human rights, ahead of the global UN climate conference in Copenhagen.

Some 80 experts from national human rights commissions and senior government officials responsible for environment and climate, are taking part in the conference in the Togolese capital organised by the 15-nation Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the United Nations and the Togo government.African countries want industrialised nations to take measures to limit global warming to two degrees celsius and cut emissions by 25 to 40 percent by 2020.

The December 7-18 UN talks in Copenhagen aim to craft a post-2012 pact for curbing the heat-trapping gases that cause global warming.
