I4CE’s contribution to the Global Climate Action Agenda’s roadmap

29 September 2016 - Foreword of the week

I4CE’s contributions quoted alongside those of other stakeholders in the synthesis report prepared by the COP21 and COP22 champions on of submissions on the roadmap for global climate action.

The world climate champions for France and Morocco Laurence Tubiana and Hakima El Haite, launched call for submissions to Parties and Non-Party Stakeholders to the international negotiation processus on climate change to welcome views on their detailed roadmap.

Building on its previous work for COP21, I4CE contributed to the call by bringing its views on the action agenda and the importance of monitoring and assessing the non-state initiatives.

The main elements of our contribution are :

  • Aligning promoted initiatives with the Paris Agreement objectives
  • Maintaining an increased ambition that encourage actions that are truly new
  • Building a consensu around MRV criteria for projects
  • Working with stakeholders networks to facilitate cooperation between state and non-state parties

Some of these insights were included in the final synthesis released on September 16th, for instance those regarding long term action coherent with Paris objectives, the necessity for state and non-state actors to enhance their ambition, focus on the implementation of cooperative initiatives.

The first meeting of the expert group in charge of supporting the Commission has raised criticisms on the composition and mandate of this group, and the discussions have taken an unexpected turn by achieving the feat of bringing NGOs and CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) industrialists to an agreement against natural carbon sinks, those of our forests or our agricultural soils. Where does this unlikely alliance come from?
