Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) on climate advocacy networks have demanded government's effective role in the upcoming COP 25 (UN Climate Change Conference) to ensure easier financial access to GCF for the Most Vulnerable Country.
Observing the frustrated performance of WIM (Warsaw International Mechanism) on Loss and Damage and Displacement issues they also suggested
for a separate Mechanism for Displacement and Migration under UNFCCC (United Nation Framework Convention on Climate Change) process.
CSOs made these demands ahead of CoP 25 Climate Conference in Madrid, Spain on 02-13 December 2019.
The press conference titled 'Madrid Climate Conference and CSO Expectations' was moderated by Md Ziaul Hoque Mukta from CSRL (Center for Sustainable Rural Livelihood).
The key demand was presented by Syed Aminul Hoque from Equity BD. Md Mostafa kamal Akand from COAST Trust, Md Shamsuddoha from CPRD (Center for Participatory Research and Development), Kawser Rahman of BCJF (Bangladesh Climate Journalist Forum) and Md Badrul Alam from Krishak Federation and Atiqur Rahaman Tipu from Coastal Development Partnership spoke at the event.
In the key note presentation, Aminul Hoque said the CoP 25 climate conference is very important for our government, because an implementing guideline especially 'Article 06 of Paris Agreement (PA)' is going to be framed that will be followed by all countries in their NDC (National Determined Contribution) compliance on market based mitigation action.
He made four demands that include developed countries must increase their mitigation action target based on latest IPCC report on reducing global warming, the framework on implementing market based mechanism on 'Mitigation Outcome International Transfer'(Article 6 of PA) must be developed under UNFCCC Process followed by accountability.
