CAN Intervention: Informal from incoming COP 20 Presidency at SB40s, 8 June, 2014

Thank you President

I will speak on behalf of the Climate Action Network.

The Lima COP is an essential milestone in the road to Paris, NO SUCCESS IN LIMA, MEANS NO SUCCESS IN PARIS

It is essential for parties to work on pre 2020 ambition. Especially on how to increase action and means of implementation in Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and land use taking into account the series of workshops that parties had recently.

On Finance it is crucial that the GCF get up and running with initial capitalization as soon as possible. The Climate Summit in September presents an excellent opportunity for countries to make their initial pledges. It is also very important that Lima provides more clarity on how Developed Countries intend to meet their pledge of increasing climate finance to 100bn per year by 2020.

Finally, is crucial that the Lima COP is transparent. Therefore, we ask parties to commit to open participation for observers including the continuation of the ADP discussions and Observer's interventions to be made at times where Parties actually listen.

We are committed to constructively working with you to make the outcome of COP 20 successful.

Muchas gracias Señor Presidente
