While the Kyoto Protocol is not yet in force (due to the unilateral declaration by the George W. Bush Administration of the United States that it would not follow the Kyoto Protocol, as well as delay in Russiaís ratification of it) already many difficulties have been overcome, with deailed operational rules for the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol having been agreed upon at the Seventh Conference of the Parties (COP7), and more than 120 countries having ratified it. This indicates that the large majority of the countries and people of the world are strongly in support of the Kyoto Protocol as the only international system of rules that could allow us to confront global warming.
CAN strongly believes that procedures and modalities for timely, meaningful, and representative participation by NGOs in all Convention-related processes are essential both to ensure that the Convention and Protocol meet their environmental and sustainable development objectives and to comply with emerging public participation principles in international law. In this paper, CAN outlines its views on the options identified in the Note by the secretariat, “Promoting effective participation in the Convention process” (FCCC/SBI/2004/5). CAN calls upon all Parties to recognize the fundamental and critical role played by NGOs in the negotiation process by supporting substantial improvements in the mechanisms and policies for NGO participation.
