Speaking at the opening of the IPCC's 28th session in Budapest, Hungary (9-10 April), the UNFCCC Executive Secretary, Yvo de Boer, said that the link between policy-making and science needed to be stronger than ever before. "The task ahead is daunting," he said. "Parties have to negotiate one of the most complex international agreements in history in a very limited period of time, so they will need all the scientific support they can get."
