Holy See represented at climate change conference

.- The Indonesian island of Bali is playing host to the 13th session of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change beginning today and continuing until December 14.

A communique made public yesterday afternoon affirms that the Holy See will be present at the Bali meeting with a delegation led by Archbishop Leopoldo Girelli, apostolic nuncio to Indonesia. Also included in the delegation are Msgr. Andrew Thanya- anan Vissanu, nunciature counsellor in Jakarta, and three local experts from the Philippines and Indonesia: Fr. Benito B. Tuazon, Fr. Alexius Andang Listya Binawan S.J., and Vera Wenny Setijawati.

"Given that the sessions of the Convention on Climate Change are held once a year in various countries," the statement reads, "the Holy See is usually represented at such meetings with a delegation led by the apostolic nuncio and made up of experts from the area, so as to take advantage of local resources and to achieve a broader and more differentiated vision of the questions being examined."
