This UN conference on climate change (COP) remained a place where the people from around the world discuss, debate and come to a conclusion on various confronting issues our communities face around the world on climate change. In this note I am trying to discuss three important aspects of this conference on climate change research, fair and equitable emission deal and climate financing.
In COP 17 we observed three types of actors; the political, scientific and activists, while each one of them is playing an important role in the negotiation process. Almost the final negotiation talks are underway through various processes as mentioned in my last article (Link>>), that they will revolve around two aspects of; growing momentum of action and the alarm bells from new climate change research. The deliberations remained around implementation of Bali and Cancun agreements those contain institutional arrangements, technology mechanism, constructing adaptation framework and green climate fund.
The private sector agencies find itself critical partner in successfully implementing adaptation technologies and emission cut through public-private partnership. However, the only aspect of private sector financing would be that such institutions will look upon the risks involved in financing any project due to various reasons like; technology type, currency flow, country positions, etc. Therefore, in light of all deliberation on Green economy, Green Financing, Carbon finances, REDD+, adaptation committee on green climate fund, etc. how the COP17 paves the path, will be a decisive moment for this conference.
In light of growing awareness and realization at Durban on climate change issues, it will be important to note that how the world moves towards more climate resilient and low carbon path and how the governments work on a common goal to limit global temperature rise.
