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.
On nearly all counts, the Lima outcome amounts to a major step-back on the climate negotiations so far. Even by the dilute standards of the Kyoto Protocol, the draft agreement is unambitious, offers no regulatory framework for what is supposed to be a “binding” climate agreement, and completes a process that blurs the distinction between global north and south.
The People’s Climate March in Lima, Peru, now touted as being the ‘largest march in Lima’ in a long time, was participated in by a diverse group of indigenous peoples, workers, women, farmers, youth, elderly, faith communities, together with representatives of non-government organizations to urge ministers to forge a just deal that actually addresses the root causes of runaway climate change, and upholds the principle of ‘common but differentiated responsibilities’ (CBDR).
At the ongoing COP 20 in Lima, Peru, civil society stresses that a successful outcome in Lima would mean going to the roots of the climate problem – which means developed countries acknowledging responsibility and compensating for centuries of colonialism and resource plunder, and ceasing to continue this legacy through unequal trade agreements, foreign investment promotion especially on extractives and dirty energy, in collusion with corporations and governments from developing countries.
