CAN Submission: Elements for the new Action Plan on Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE) and modalities for the in-session technical workshop on ACE
Climate Action Network (CAN) welcomes the opportunity to provide its recommendations for the in-session technical workshop and future Action Plan, to be adopted at COP27, to enhance the implementation of Article 6 of the Convention and Article 12 of the Paris Agreement. As CAN’s member organizations are involved on a day-to-day basis in activities related to the six thematic areas of Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE) at the local, national, and international level, CAN reiterates its commitment to support implementation of ACE and to work with state Parties to secure better integration of ACE into climate action.
CAN strongly believes that policy measures covered by Action for Climate Empowerment have the potential to act as catalysts for climate ambition and for a people-centered implementation of the Paris Agreement. CAN urges state Parties to adopt an ACE Action Plan that is coherent with relevant processes within and outside the Convention and the Paris Agreement, and that can support Parties in implementing effective, human rights-based climate policies.
