Development and Peace

The Canadian Catholic Organization for 'Development and Peace' is a democratic movement for international solidarity. This group works with partners in the Global South, to pursue alternatives to unjust social, political and economic structures. It also strives to educate Canadians on problems in the Global South and to inspire them to take action for social change.

Development and Peace is a partner centered organization. It is not a donor centered organization. Development and Peace works with the people in Global South and concentrates on what they believe they need.

This organization is inspired by the values of the Gospel, particularly "the preferential option for the poor".

CAN Intervention: SBI Opening Bonn SB44/APA1, 16th May, 2016

~~Dear Co-Chairs,

My name is Inga Fritzen Buan and I am speaking on behalf of Climate Action Network.
 
World leaders have agreed to keep global warming well below 2°C and to pursue efforts to limit to 1.5°C. However, if more is not done now, action under the Paris Agreement might be too little, too late. We need more action, faster action, now.
 
Therefore, the technical expert meetings must be results-focused and serve as incubators for globally transformative initiatives in specific sectors and technologies.
 
We ask that the SBI and SBSTA initiate a process to develop criteria to ensure that these projects and initiatives respect human rights and food sovereignty, have environmental integrity, and that potential risks associated with new technologies are assessed.
 
Overcoming barriers to finance should be on the agenda for every TEM and part of the high-level champions’ work. To overcome the significant finance gap, CAN expects developed country Parties to be proactive about drafting the finance roadmap agreed to in Paris. The result should be presented at COP22 at the latest.
 
CAN asks that the champions produce a scenario note for 2016 and 2017, including on resource mobilization and engagement with Parties and non-Party stakeholders on how to turn words into action.
 
We look forward to meaningful civil society participation in both technical processes.
 
Thank you.
