Commenting on today’s (18 February) announcement that Mr Yvo de Boer will resign his position as Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change as of 1 July 2010, the UK’s Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Miliband said:

“Yvo de Boer's patient work helped produce the Copenhagen Accord which contains commitments covering 80 percent of global emissions, something never previously achieved.

“We must quickly find a suitable successor, who can oversee the negotiations and reform the UNFCCC to ensure it is up to the massive task of dealing with what are some of the most complex negotiations ever."
