Green groups for revised emission reduction target
They also demanded the Temperature Peaking Year from this year’s meeting to be fixed, “as soon as possible” to save earth. The call came from a press conference held at Marrakesh at COP22 on Tuesday. The rights groups represented the Most Vulnerable Countries (MVCs) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs). The current trend of Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) will lead to an increase in the global temperature by 3.5 degrees Celsius. which is 1.5 degrees more than 2 degrees target set by the Paris agreement. This will lead to more catastrophes in the MVC and LDCs, said Sanjay Vashist of Climate Action Network (South Asia). Sanjay urged the state parties to raise emission reduction targets of developed countries. While presenting the platform’s position, Sharmind Neelormi of Campaign for Sustainable Rural Livelihood (CSRL) Bangladesh said the term in respect of temperature peaking year should be specified in view of common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capacities (CBDRC). The group proposed that the “Temperature Peaking Year” set for developed countries be 2020; China and India in 2025 and for developing countries which includes MVCs and LDCs, 2035. Regarding the Loss and Damages issue, Rezaul Karim Chowdhury of EquityBD said the Marrakesh climate conference has to deliver a clear direction of Loss and Damage occurring from global warming. “To recover loss and damage due to climate change there should be additional financing beyond the USD 100 billion proposed in the Paris Agreement,” Rezaul said. Apart from this, a road map integrating the climate induced displacement in the Warsaw International Mechanism process should be included in the ongoing climate conference, he added. Regarding the USD 100 billion climate finance, Ziaul Haque Mukta of CSRL said Marrakesh must deliver a predictable road map in respect to the pledged USD 100 billion climate finance from 2020. There should also be a provision to finance the road map until 2020 in addition to Official Development Assistance to developing countries. There must be a meticulous balance between mitigation and adaptation, he added. l
