This report provides an alternate response to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change’s request to the IPCC to analyse impacts of warming to 1.5°C and related greenhouse gas emission pathways. Prepared by representatives of the Climate Land Ambition and Rights Alliance (CLARA) of which CIDSE is part. CLARA is a consortium of advocates, faith-based organizations and scientists concerned with climate mitigation and adaptation, the report responds specifically to the concern that many IPCC pathways rely heavily on untested mitigation approaches such as bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS). CLARA supports the IPCC’s objective of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change while meeting sustainable development goals and reducing poverty.

Under the Presidency of Fiji, COP23 will set the ground for evaluating collective progress in achieving the goals set by the agreement, particularly in keeping temperatures below the 1.5 degrees’ threshold and swiftly transitioning towards low carbon, renewable based economies.
