CAN Intervention - Closing Bonn APA - 26th May, 2016

Thank you, Madame Co-Chair.

My name is Masako Konishi, and I am speaking on behalf of Climate Action Network.

In the afterglow of Paris, it is now time to increase pre-2020 action and support. The 2016 facilitative dialogue, the high-level finance event, the capacity building work program, and the high-level champions are important opportunities we need to use to ramp-up ambition.

Marrakech should also set a clear plan to finalise the transparency framework as a priority so that this will contribute to a more effective 2018 facilitative dialogue and inform updates of INDCs. Parties must agree on how flexibility will be applied in a common framework, and how convergence will ultimately occur. 

COP 22 should also set the path for the 2018 stocktake to result in a global ramping up of currently inadequate efforts to put the world on a 1.5ºC pathway. The modalities for the global stocktake should be prepared as as soon as possible.

Finally, by COP 22, developed countries must present a credible, transparent roadmap towards meeting their 100 billion dollars a year promise, including a specific target for adaptation finance.

Thank you.



CAN Intervention - Closing Bonn SBI - 26th May, 2016

~~Thank you Co-Chairs.

I am Vositha Wijenayake, speaking on behalf of Climate Action Network.

We welcome the constructive recommendations from the gender workshop and look forward to an extension of the Lima Work Programme in Marrakesh based on these recommendations.

We are encouraged by the adoption of the terms of reference of the Paris Committee on Capacity Building. The finalisation of the third comprehensive review at COP 22 would provide clear guidance to the Paris Committee.

We believe that the conclusions adopted in Bonn in relation to access to information, public participation and stakeholder engagement provide a basis for a stronger partnership between civil society and governments. CAN welcomes the conclusions concerning the in-session workshop on observer participation at SB46.

We also look forward to considering practical solutions to ensure that the negotiating process is safeguarded from those whose interest runs against the objectives of the Convention, such as transnational fossil fuel corporations.

Finally,we urge parties to begin a structured expert dialogue (SED) from 2018 to 2022 to support the review and to ensure scientific integrity through a focused exchange of views, information and ideas. The SED should be mandated to draw first conclusions of the IPCC Special Report on 1.5ºC to inform the facilitative dialogue in 2018.

Thank you.
