    Civil society plays an important role in climate negotiations: pressuring governments, providing scientific inputs, and representing the voices of those excluded or unable to be present. Last year, in Durban at COP17, the civil society presence was sometimes loud and visible, as befits a country with a proud tradition of people power. For NGOs like Greenpeace, demonstrations are a major way of impacting on the formal negotiations. See http://www.greenpeace.org/africa/en/News/Blog/turning-the-tide-with-people-power/blog/42917/

    In Qatar, however, the prospect of civil society protest raises more questions. Will it be tolerated by the authorities? Will civil society groups be willing and able to attend the COP? And, of course, the bigger question is what difference do they make? See http://treadsoftly.net/will-doha-tolerate-climate-protests-at-cop18/
