YOUNGO- KP Stocktaking Intervention- COP 16

Posted by NYCA Blogger on December 8, 2010

Dear delegates,

After this first week of negotiations, we are glad to address this stock taking

session.In 2005, we started negotiating the second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol.Now, 2 years before the end of the 1st commitment period, this lack of progress in the negotiations on the next period is worrying.

It is worrying for several reasons:The Kyoto Protocol is the only international legal instrument that we have to preventthe disastrous effects of climate change, and consequently to reduce the emissions of the Annex I countries.

Even if the implementation of this agreement during its first commitment period was
not the success we were expecting, there is a big and important room for improvement and to ensure a live-able present and a safer future for the next generations. It seems that slowing down the process and waiting for the end of the 1st commitment period is the option that Japan, Canada and Russia want to develop in the negotiations.

This option is not acceptable. And we will never support an option so weak from such developed countries.On the other hand, we ask the EU, Norway and Australia and the other parties or groups to the Annex I to commit quickly and strongly to a new commitment period with targets in line with the latest science available.
