Climate finance: for transformative change (?)

Five years from the next big ‘deadline on climate’, world leaders are still negotiating over deadlines. They are nowhere near agreeing on, much less mobilizing, even a basic roadmap for ensuring the fulfillment of commitments made by northern countries to the global south. This includes bankrolling US $100 billion of climate finance to developing countries every year by 2020, an amount climate scientists estimate is itself barely enough to meet the challenges we face.

IBON INTERNATIONAL UPDATE NO. 5

COP 20 of UNFCCC is taking place from December 1­ to 12 in Lima, Peru. Expectations are high that this year’s Climate Summit will make significant inroads to bring the Parties to agree on a draft text to be negotiated and agreed on in Paris in 2015, and which will inform the international community’s response to the increasing urgency for climate action. More pressure than ever before rests on this COP ending with a meaningful outcome, and the host government Peru stressed this message at the opening of COP 20 in saying that ‘success in Lima will determine success in Paris.’ But what is really at stake here?

Climate change 'back at the top of the political agenda', but grueling talks remain ahead

The UN Climate Summit, held right after a 400,000-strong People’s Climate March thundered through 80 blocks of New York City streets, appears to have derived extra energy from the gigantic street demonstration. Both events have attracted tremendous media attention worldwide and have certainly combined to “put climate change back at the top of the political agenda”—in the short term. The question remains, however: Will the momentum be sustained and provide enough power to break the deadlock in the climate talks, which has stalled climate action in previous years?

Last-minute compromises in COP 19 fail to deliver positive outcomes

COP 19, the UN climate talks in Warsaw, is running out of time. It is threatened with complete breakdown as major disagreements continue, with heated debates continuing throughout the night in the final stretch of the two-week-long international meeting.
