Not wanting to get involved in the debate about UN Security Council,or UN General Assembly, as venues for problems of Climate and Energy, Barbados found its own way of saying something positive.

Recognizing the impacts of Climate Change on the security of the developing countries in general and on his own Island State in particular, the Barbados Representative to the UN found it important to recognize the contribution of the April 17, 2007 discussion that was advanced by the UK, then he thinks that ECOSOC in September, at the Foreign Ministers level, could reinforce the topic before it goes to the UNFCCC meeting that will be held in Bali this December. He has thus found a practical location for the high level meeting the UN Secretary General mentioned earlier.
