CAN Letter: Input to the work on pre-2020 climate action in 2016, April 2016

Dear Mr. Fuller and Mr. Chruszczow,

I am writing on behalf of the Climate Action Network (CAN), an umbrella of more than 950 organizations worldwide.

Firstly, I would like to welcome the COP21 decisions on “Enhanced action prior to 2020”, in particular the decisions to launch a technical examination of adaptation, and to appoint high-level champions to ensure the new and existing efforts on mitigation and adaptation are scaled up and strengthened. CAN also welcomes the appointment of Laurence Tubiana as the first high-level champion and looks forward to the appointment of the second champion by the President of COP22 as well as the first annual high-level event at COP22.
Secondly, I would like to make a few comments and suggestions on the work plan for pre-2020 climate action. Many of our members have been very active in the discussions under ADP Workstream 2, to ensure that it continues beyond COP21 as a permanent action agenda. CAN proposes further work in the following five areas to facilitate enhanced action:
