|[en] This paper reports the results of a round-table debate organized by the Royal Academy for Overseas Sciences (RAOS) on Developing Countries facing Global Warming: a Post-Kyoto Assessment (Brussels, 13 June, 2009) to highlight the view of developing countries on adaptation to and mitigation of climate change. The participants convened to discuss the various aspects of climate change impacts and adaptation in developing countries preceding the Copenhagen Conference (UNFCCC COP 15) in December 2009. Here, we summarize the point of view of the two invited speakers representing developing countries.|

|The discussion, chaired by Morgan De Dapper, President of the “Environment and Development” Commission of the Royal Academy for Overseas Sciences, focused on various developing countries considerations regarding the forthcoming climate change negotiations (Copenhagen in 2009, Cancun in 2010, Cape Town in 2011, …), including their role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, their weak position in international talks and their difficulties to adapt to forced climate change.
Speakers representing developing countries were Karimou Ambouta (RAOS; Université Abdou Moumouni, Niamey, Niger) for least developed countries, and Rais Akhtar (RAOS; Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India) for emerging economies countries. The Vice-Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Jean-Pascal van Ypersele (Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium), joined the round table together with Yvan Biot (RAOS; Research and Evidence Division, Department for International Development, London, UK), who also prefaced the debate. Also participated in the debate: Samy Mankoto (RAOS; UNESCO Paris, France), Bernard Mazijn (Universiteit Gent, Belgium), Bart Muys (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium), Jean-Jacques Peters (RAOS; river specialist), Eric Tollens (RAOS; Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium), Philippe Tulkens (European Commission, Brussels, Belgium), and Marc Van Montagu (RAOS; Universiteit Gent, Belgium).
