Targets
1) It is time to accelerate, scale up, reproduce success stories, and deliver through the appropriate mechanisms, based on the work streams agreed upon in Paris and the ambition reflected up until and throughout Glasgow.
2) Creating a revolutionary adaptation agenda is necessary right now to deliver on adaptation. one that is based on research, responsive to the actual needs of nations and communities who are climate fragile, and that safeguards everyone’s basic necessities as well as the objective and needs of sustainable development.
3) It is time to respond to the cries and needs for an effective framework that satisfies the needs for action and support, especially for those who are most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. This includes action to clarify support for loss and damage.
4) Making finance flows a reality. Providing, mobilizing and delivering climate finance for developing countries is an urgent priority and needs a new mindset, updated strategies and policies especially on the backdrop of current financial crises, debt challenges and increasing interest rates. It is imperative to make appropriate financial flows that are based on needs identified through NDCs and other vehicles, with a focus on concessional finance instruments, and grants as appropriate, while providing a clear revision of definition of bankable projects that takes into consideration climate benefits and not only risks, and achieving cross cutting impacts.
5) Ensuring a managed and just transition, based on the agreed principles in the Convention and its Paris Agreement, to deliver the agreed transition to an economic model based on low emission and climate resilient development as envisaged in Paris Agreement and the enhanced action identified in Glasgow. It is important that we agree on managing the transition in a manner which ensures the needed shift and the quick phasing in of low emission technologies and phasing-down of high emission ones, while keeping in mind the impacts of implementation of response measures and ensuring that the Just transition meets the needs of all those who are impacted, including regarding food and water security.
