On the occasion of the COP23 in Bonn, social movements, environmental and development NGOs, trade unions, faith and other civil society groups including CIDSE have come together to assess the climate commitments (NDCs) that have been put on the table through the UN climate negotiations. Check the findings in this new report endorsed by over 120 organisations from across the world*.
“In agreement with what Pope Francis defines as the “ecological debt”, rich countries must deliver their fair share of public climate finance to limit warming to 1.5°C. This is the least they can do for the most affected by climate change in order to embark on a low-carbon development pathway. For CIDSE, this effort should be coupled with a systemic societal transformation, embracing sustainable ways of living and promoting gender equality.”
Giulia Bondi, Climate Justice and Energy Officer, CIDSE
