After Lima: Hopes falter for a system-changing climate deal

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.

IBON INTERNATIONAL UPDATE NO. 8

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).

IBON INTERNATIONAL UPDATE NO. 7

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.

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? What does a ‘successful outcome’ actually mean for the different actors in this intergovernmental process?
