Mexico, who are hosting the next United Nations main annual conference in November and December this year, has proposed two additional negotiating sessions to assist in preparing for the talks.

A week-long session is being recommended to be held in mid April and then again in September or October, Mexico’s delegation said in a letter posted today on the Web site of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, or UNFCCC which organizes the global effort to lower greenhouse gas emissions.

While the UNFCCC has talks scheduled for June in Germany to help prepare for the larger meeting later in the year, Mexican President Felipe Calderon last month said while attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that governments need to reach a “comprehensive, robust and substantial agreement” at the meetings in Mexico.

The 2009 summit in Copenhagen failed to produce a legally binding treaty to fight climate change. The NEX index tracking shares of 86 clean energy companies worldwide has fallen almost 12 percent since those talks finished.
