PERU ROLLED OUT the green carpet this week for the Conference of the Parties (COP 20), the United Nations climate change talks, amidst harsh criticisms from indigenous leaders and activists who say the government is far from eco-friendly.
South American nation has spent US$54 million to host the 12-day forum, which runs from December 1 to 12, with leaders from 195 countries and more than 10,000 delegates.
But while Peru tries to show a green face to the world, opposition parties accuse the government of watering down environmental legislation and unleashing the police on indigenous and farming communities defending their land and water resources
