CAN Submission: CAN views on approaches and initiatives for increasing the efficiency of the UNFCCC process towards enhancing ambition and strengthening implementation
The UNFCCC is a space that is often dominated by elites and corporations, at the expense of all others. Clearly, urgent and transformative change necessitates fundamental revisioning of the current system and how it must be adapted to reflect the urgency to address climate change.
COP26 was yet another wake-up call for the international climate community: the structures of the climate regime are not working for the speed and scale of changes needed to maintain Parties’ commitments to keeping under 1.5 degrees. Participatory policy and decision making must be at the heart of climate action to be transformative, just and equitable.
This realisation, combined with the transition to implementation, provides a unique opportunity to think about an alternative future and vision for the UNFCCC. Climate Action Network (CAN) welcomes the opportunity to provide recommendations on approaches and initiatives for increasing the efficiency of the UNFCCC process towards enhancing ambition and strengthening implementation
