Why a Working Group on Climate Justice in AEPF?

This year's G8 Summit, which was held in L'Aquila, Italy from July 8 to 10 offered one more opportunity for leaders from major economies to break the climate deadlock by demonstrating their political will in solving the climate crisis and produce something substantial on the table on key issues of technology cooperation and financing. Unfortunately, that opportunity was once more missed. For those following the negotiations in the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), this is not surprising for the divide between the interests of developed and developing countries are huge and the contradictions related to offered solutions are getting bigger.

 

The super-rich and the mega-powerful have apportioned the world into their own exclusive domains: huge private oil fields, mining sites, fishing grounds, timberlands, and agro-industrial regions. The privatization of public resources—and their attendant exploitation, exhaustion, and destruction—has been egregious to the planet and its inhabitants.

One hundred thousand protesters braved near freezing temperatures and took over the Danish capital, Copenhagen, on December 12 to crank up the heat on world leaders at the United Nations Climate Summit (COP15) and demand climate justice.

The protest, in a carnival-like atmosphere, brought together a broad range of groups — from the explicitly anti-capitalist to the lobbying NGOs — and was led by a group of indigenous activists on a 4.5 kilometre march to the Bella Center, where the COP15 is taking place.

The demonstration was the main focus of a fortnight of climate justice protests, and was proceeded by a 5000-strong "flood" of Copenhagen, organised by Friends of the Earth.

Global civil society groups demanded a leagal institutional framework for climate refugees.

[Copenhagen, Friday 11 December 2009] While the countries split wide open on combating climate change, the civil soiceity groups have launched the "International Campaign on Climate Refugees Rights (ICCR)" at Copenhagen. The social movement groups from Asia, Africa and Latin/Central America joined hands together to demand the rights of millions of people being displaced by the climate change.

UN: Leaked document not formal text Print E-mail

The head of the UN Climate Change Secretariat has said a leaked text which appears to undermine the existing Kyoto Protocol and on-going UN climate negotiations in Copenhagen is out of date and is unlikely to constitute the final outcome.

There has been widespread anger among developing nations over the document, which was leaked by The Guardian, a British newspaper and appears to have been drawn up by a small group of rich nations including the US, UK and Denmark.


Speaking on Wednesday, Yvo de Boer said: "That text, and other texts that have been circulating, have not been on the table in a formal sense."

De Boer said that the document was "the basis for discussion among a number of countries, actually a week and a day ago, and have never been tabled in any formal way".

"But I think the [mood] that's out there, people see that as a document that they don't want to be the base for negotiation," he said.

Developing countries have said that the text is part of a plan by rich nations to set unequal limits on carbon emissions in 2050, according to a confidential analysis of the proposals that The Guardian also obtained. Read complete report.
