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.
