Cop24 Agreement Pdf
Common Calendar – The Paris Agreement required the parties to discuss the definition of a common timetable for the presentation of national contributions during COP24. The parties partially set these deadlines, indicating that they could apply to contributions from 2031. However, it remains to be agreed that they will last 5 or 10 years – the parties have reserved the possibility of resolving this issue at the next COP25. National contribution records – In accordance with the Paris Agreement, contracting parties should define how national contributions submitted by the parties under the agreement should be managed in the form of a register in Katowice. During COP24, the parties were able to agree on the form of such a register, which will be based on a temporary register currently in place and, with the communication on adaptation, it will form the registration portal. This register will contain all the contributions previously presented, defined at the national level, but not to be searched, which constituted a compromise between the positions of the parties during the negotiations. On the basis of agreed guidelines, the secretariat will develop a prototype for such a registry and submit them to the contracting parties for approval at COP25. This solution allows for the appropriateness of all the political issues raised, so that the Secretariat has one year to develop technical solutions. The decision adopted governs the functioning of the Committee so that its work is possible. However, the creation of the committee has been postponed due to the elections scheduled for the CMA2 (end of 2019).
Differentiation within the compliance system has been avoided. The decision provides only room for manoeuvre with respect to the procedural delays for the contracting parties they need because of their internal capabilities. Developing countries appear as a category only as an article 13 flexibility-tested body and as an organization that is entitled to the possible use of funds to co-finance their participation in the Committee`s work. To consider as a great success, with the agreement of the parties, the agreement on the mandate of the Committee to take action in certain cases and, with the agreement of the parties, in the event of serious and persistent non-compliance with the transparency guidelines. Similarly, the mandate to resolve systemic issues can be a positive contribution of the Committee to the functioning of the implementation system of the Paris Agreement. The operationalization of the platform of local communities and indigenous peoples could become one of the most important instruments to be used to combat climate change without leaving anyone behind. We can now work together to integrate different knowledge systems, to expand and accelerate our efforts to address the threats and effects of climate change in a global and integrated way. The platform is an unprecedented partnership between countries and indigenous peoples.
