Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) and the Indian Ministry of Environment and Forests Side Event, CoP18, Doha, Qatar

Equity and ADP: How equity should become an integral part of the ADP negotiation

Date and time: Wednesday, December 5, 2012; 4.45-6.15 PM

Venue: Side Event Room 4

equtiyDurban’s decision on a new agreement in 2015 fails to explicitly take note of equity, but it was agreed that any future agreement would fall within the ambit of the principles of the United Nations Framework Convention.

The side event will address how future discussions in ADP need to address this challenge and the discussions will strive to reassert that without addressing equity, the challenge of climate change may not be resolvable and any mid- and long-term agreement will have to be embedded in a framework that recognizes that issues of equity and justice lie at the heart of the climate change problem.

Doha Diary

Wednesday, December 5, 2012
Xie Zhenhua, head of the Chinese delegation at CoP18, Doha said today that finance is at the core of the issue -- without finance, adaptation and mitigation activities in developing nations cannot happen. There is a good news — discussions with ministers of developed nations are leading to an assurance that new finance could be announced during Doha. Mr Zhenhua refused to take names, as he believes the owner of the good news should be the one to announce it.
