Dr Adrian Macey tackles climate change in free talk Dr Adrian Macey Dr Adrian Macey will be giving a free public talk in Masterton next week about international efforts to address what has become one of the major issues of our time -- climate change. As chairman of the Kyoto Protocol negotiations, Dr Macey is uniquely placed to offer interesting insights into multilateral efforts to address this chal- lenge. Dr Macey was New Zealand's first cli- mate change ambassador from 2006 to 2010, and has wide experience of multi- lateral negotiations, including the Uruguay and Doha rounds of the GATT/ WTO. He is a Senior Associate of the Insti- tute of Policy Studies, School of Government, Victoria University. Before his work in climate change, Dr Macey served in various positions in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, including Ambassador to Thailand, Chief Trade Negotiator, and Ambassador to France, Algeria and the OECD in Paris. International efforts on climate change are at a critical juncture. The Kyoto Protocol is due to expire this year. As an agriculture-dependent country, New Zealand is far from immune to the consequences of climate change and the actions of other countries in this respect. This event is organised by U3A (University of the Third Age), a volunteer-based group whose members share a love of lifelong learning. For more information on U3A contact REAP 06 377 1379 or U3A Secretary Keitha Roberts 06 304 8534. NB: Dr Adrian Macey, Tuesday, January 17, 1pm Masterton's Town Hall.
