Ministers from around the world are in Lima, Peru this week to negotiate the outline of a global deal to tackle climate change.

Prof John Sweeney, Ireland's leading climate scientist, is there as an observer on the Irish Government delegation. We're posting his reflections on our Blog. Here's a taster from his take on yesterday's proceedings:

"The star of the show today was once again President Evo Morales from neighbouring Bolivia. Now in his third term, this first President of Bolivia to emerge from the indigenous population, Evo has always been a fiery and compelling orator and his speech today did not disappoint."

My colleague Ciara Kirrane, the Coordinator of the Stop Climate Chaos coalition, is also in Lima. You can read her first impressions here and all her updates here.

Our Friends of the Earth colleagues in London have produced a wealth of resources on the UN climate talks in Lima and what a just global deal looks like.

If you have time for just one thing have a look at this infographic which captures the basics of climate justice.

For the latest updates check out tweets from Asad Rheman in Lima, Friends of the Earth International climate campaigner, and our own Facebook page.

And six young people from Ireland travelled overland to Brussels to take part in a week of education and action on climate justice to coincide with the talks. Check out "Lima in Brussels" here.
