MAP proposed by UN climate change conventionGiving a clear message to climate skeptics, the UN climate change conference has come out with action proclamation indicating the worldwide momentum on climate change is irreversible as it is driven by science, business, global action and governance.
  • The proclamation which is a reiteration of the Paris Agreement calling for raising ambition and strengthening cooperation among nations to close the gap between current emission trajectories and the pathway needed to keep the average global temperature rise within 2 degree C by 2100 from pre-industrial levels
  • The Marrakech Action Proclamation for Our Climate and Sustainable Development was issued on 16th Nov following consultations among nations and participating ministers regardless of what the US will do in the Trump era
  • The final version of the MAP ensures that rich nations mobilise USD 100 billion by 2020 and the concerns of the developing countries over the issue of the developed countries pre-2020 climate actions including assigned emissions cut for them till 2020 under the Kyoto Protocol
  • The developed country parties reaffirm the USD 100 billion mobilisation goal calling for further climate action and support, in advance of 2020 taking the specific needs and circumstances into account for developing countries, LDC nations and particularly those vulnerable to adverse effects of climate change
  • The task is to now rapidly build on the momentum and move to reduce GHG emissions and foster adaptation benefiting and supporting the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and SDGs
  • As governments cannot implement the Paris agreement on their own, the MAP calls the private players including business enterprises to pitch in to fight challenges of climate change by moving onto a clean energy step
  • The collective call is on non state actors to join us for immediate and ambitious action and mobilisation based on important achievements such as the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action itself.
