CAN Briefing: Expectations for the 18th Informal Meeting on Further Actions Against Climate Change, February 2020

2020 is a decisive year - it marks the start of a decade of climate ambition and it starts now. We need to focus on the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the closing of the emissions gap. This is what your citizens are asking you to do and assess you against at the end of this year. The 18th Informal Meeting on Further Actions Against Climate Change is a first moment to respond to that unprecedented urgency. and must be used as a moment to send strong and credible signals that countries are committed to delivering enhanced, transformative, just and fair NDCs.

Climate Action Network prepared this briefing outlining expectations for 2020 with the intention of supporting parties at this Meeting and expects countries to discuss and send clear signals for how they will increase their national climate targets by COP26; implement a robust climate agenda in line with the long term goals of the Paris Agreement; and develop a resilience framework responding to the needs of the most vulnerable countries.

CAN Annual Policy Document, Executive Summary: Madrid - Responding to the People and the Science, English, November 2019

Around the world millions of people have taken to the streets — from Hong Kong, the UK, Haiti, Lebanon, Ecuador, and Chile — demanding their right to a better life. These protests are the culmination of increasing public awareness and a lack of government action to address the root causes of the climate emergency and social injustice; the two of which are fundamentally linked.

CAN Position: Achieving Overall Mitigation in Global Emissions through Article 6 of the Paris Agreement, October 2019

 
In the context of negotiations currently underway to establish a new set of global carbon markets under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement, CAN-I fully supports the need for any such mechanism to deliver a real reduction in global emissions. Under the Kyoto Protocol, carbon markets have operated under a zero-sum game logic whereby, in theory, and under a perfectly functioning system, emissions in developed countries were compensated by emission reductions in developing countries. Given the need to accelerate climate action around the world, such a mechanism is not sufficiently ambitious.

CAN Submission: View on the Review of the Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage, October 2019

Climate Action Network (CAN) International thanks for the opportunity to provide its views on the WIM review in this submission. Agreeing on a further submission at SB50 is important in order to allow Parties and observer organisations sharpen and reshape their positions and contributions along the key criteria and aspects agreed as part of the Terms of Reference (ToRs) for the Review. As a lot of important information was already presented in previous submissions by Parties and observer organisations, CAN would like to recall its contributions as important inputs and which should still be taken into account by Parties when conducting the review, including:

  • CAN International’s briefing paper for the Pre-COP;
  • CAN International’s letter to the Special Envoy for the UN Climate Action Summit;
  • CAN International’s submission “Views and inputs on possible elements to be included in the terms of reference for the review of the Warsaw International Mechanism, February 2019” and
  • CAN Submission on the Scope of the Technical Paper Exploring Sources of Support for Loss and Damage and Modalities for Accessing Support, February 2018

CAN Submission to KJWA: Improved nutrient use and manure management towards sustainable and resilient agricultural systems, October 2019

With regard to the issues of nutrient use, manure management, and sustainable and resilient agricultural systems, the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA) should pay special attention to the climate, socio-economic and environmental harm caused by the use of synthetic nitrogen fertilisers, in contrast to the multiple advantages conferred through the use of agroecological practices.

CAN Briefing: Expectations for pre-COP25, October 2019

"How dare you? To come here and say that you are doing enough,” Greta Thunberg asked world leaders at the recent Climate Action Summit. Overall, the political commitments, especially from large emitters failed to provide an adequate response to the climate crisis. The IPCC report is clear: We need to halve global GHG emissions by 2030.

Climate Action Network provides this briefing outlining its expectations on the package that needs to be delivered at COP25 to inform ministers and the Chilean presidency in view of the Ministerial Pre-COP gathering to be held on October 8-10, 2019. The briefing is based on the key issues to be decided at COP25 and the agenda of the Pre-COP.
