(11/30/2007)

On the eve of The U.N. Conference on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Bali is looking forward with anticipation and some trepidation to the largest and most politically charged international conference ever held on the Island. Advance teams are already in place, preparing for the actual event slated for December 3-14, 2007. More than 7,000 Indonesian armed troops complemented by UN Forces will be on duty to protect the estimated 15,000 delegates.

A Truly International Affair

Organizers confirm that 120 ministers of state and high-ranking delegations from 189 countries will attend the important event that is hoped will yield a coordinated world-wide plan to deal with the threat of climate change.

Regular tourist visitors and conference participants should expect to encounter an unprecedented level of security measures at the airport, hotels and public places across the Island.

As the conference dates approach, the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta issued a special warden's message on November 21, 2007, reminding its citizens of a "continued security threat in Indonesia" posed by terrorists. Underlining the highly politicized nature of the conference, the Embassy warned its citizen coming to Bali during the UNFCCC conference period that "demonstrations in connection with this high profile conference could begin at any time."

The high level of security in place for the conference and a "full house" situation at most accommodation providers have many worried that traffic jams and long lines will be common occurrences in Bali during the first half of December 2007.

Nusa Dua Complex: A Security Fortress

With the UNFCCC centered at Bali's Nusa Dua Complex, all land and sea access to that area will be heavily fortified. A security sterilization of the area was introduced starting from mid-November which is expected to intensify as the actual dates of the conference near. Only two of the Complex's four entrances will be open throughout the period of the conference. Vehicles used by delegates and employees will be "exiled" to satellite parking areas outside the Nusa Dua Complex and suppliers to the 14 hotels within Nusa Dua have been told to deliver their goods between midnight and 6 a.m..

Those with business in Nusa Dua during the conference dates should allocate plenty of extra time in their traveling schedule to facilitate thorough vehicle and identity checks.

Police personnel will be high visibility throughout the event with groups of officers assigned to every traffic intersection across the southern part of Bali.
