Side event: HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE FOLLOW-UP AND REVIEW OF THE 2030 AGENDA

Dear Colleagues,

Please take note of the following side-event on July 13 11.00 AM-1 PM at the UN Headquarters in New York, which is happening during the High-Level Thematic Debate on Human Rights and the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development;

HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE FOLLOW-UP AND REVIEW OF THE 2030 AGENDA

Co-sponsored by the Permanent Missions of Chile and Denmark, the Danish Institute for Human Rights, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Global Alliance of National Human Rights Institutions

With opening remarks from the President of the UN General Assembly, the side-event will bring together high-level speakers to discuss how human rights monitoring and follow-up and review of the SDGs, at national, regional and global levels, can be supplementary and mutually reinforcing.

The side-event departs from the premise that the 2030 Agenda is grounded in international human rights. Research by the Danish Institute for Human Rights shows that 92 % of the goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda reflect provisions of international human rights and labour standards. This research has also resulted in a human rights guide to the SDG’s in five different languages.

Moreover, the 2030 Agenda specifies that the Follow-Up and Review (FUR) processes at national, regional and global levels should be guided by the principles of accountability, participation and non-discrimination, which are at the core of the human rights-based approach to development. Likewise, human rights monitoring can identify gaps and guide SDG implementation, while data generated under the SDGs will help shed light on progress in human rights realization. The Danish Institute for Human Rights has connected the SDG’s and the FUR in a comprehensive paper on the subject.

We apologise for any cross-posting and encourage you to please share within your networks.

Best regards,

Side event: Leaving No One Behind – A Human Rights Approach to Combating Inequalities and Discrimination

Support

High-Level Political Forum side event

Leaving No One Behind

A Human Rights Approach to Combating Inequalities and Discrimination

Where: Conference Room 11, United Nations Headquarters, New York

When: July 12,

As economic inequality reaches a historic high, exacerbating multiple, enmeshed forms of discrimination, states, UN agencies, and civil society must put equality and non-discrimination at the heart of efforts to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. One of the most potentially transformative elements of the 2030 Agenda is the commitment to “leave no one behind”. Human rights principles and standards on equality, non-discrimination, and accountability provide a detailed normative framework for making these commitments a reality.
PicturePics
This event will provide space for international human rights organizations, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and representatives of UN missions to discuss ideas and present recommendations on how to address inequalities within and between states to ensure that the implementation, follow up, and review of the 2030 Agenda leaves no one behind.

Speakers:

  • Mr. Rauno Merisaari, Ambassador at-large on Human Rights and Democracy, Finland (opening remarks)
  • Craig Mokhiber, Chief of Development, Economic and Social Issues Branch, Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights
  • Lilian Sepúlveda, Vice President, Center for Reproductive Rights
  • Yetnebersh Nigussie, Senior Inclusion Advisor, International Disability Alliance
  • Sherine Tadros, Head of UN office, Amnesty International
  • Iain Levine, Deputy Executive Director, Human Rights Watch

Moderator:

  • Ignacio Saiz, Executive Director, Center for Economic and Social Rights (moderator)

Addis Ababa: FfD3 Side Event – Reform of Financial Systems to Incentivize Investment in Sustainable Development

PastedGraphic-1 Aviva Inverstors

Dear colleagues, we are pleased to invite you to the below side event: 

Financing for Development (FfD) Side Event 

Reform of Financial Systems to Incentivize Investment in Sustainable Development

 

Wednesday, 15 July 2015, 13:15 – 14:45

Hotel Jupiter, Conference Hall

Tito Street, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

An uncertain future leads to growing category of risks to global prosperity and the sustainability of economic development.

These risks originate from unsustainable economic activities that are motivated by the assumption of unlimited natural resources. This paradigm, in turn, creates a flawed pricing system along with other externalities, including inaccurate costing of ecosystems services and growing social inequity.

This event explores the opportunities and solutions available to reform our financial systems and capital markets in order to incentivize investments in sustainable development, promote greater transparency and accountability in fiscal decision-making and shift our socio-economic structures to a more sustainable foundation. We will discuss key financial ‘tests’ reflect on the current state of the FfD Outcome Document.

We will also discuss the various initiatives of the event partners, which will aid in the reform of financial systems to incentivize investment in sustainable development.

  • Chair – Farooq Ullah – Director, Stakeholder Forum
  • Panelists:

o   Abigail Herron – Head of Responsible Investment Engagement, Aviva Investors

o   Will Martindale – Head of Policy, Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) Initiative

Invitation to a side-event on FfD Follow-up, June 18, New York .


Following up on Addis Ababa

What will we need to sustain the outcomes of the 3rd International Conference on Financing for Development?

Side-event during the 3rd Drafting Session for the Outcome Document for FfD3
Thursday, 18 June 2015, 1 – 2:30 pm
Bahá’Í International Community Office, 866 UN Plaza, Suite 120, New York


The outcome document for the Third International Conference on Financing for Development (FfD3) is being finalized at the United Nations in New York. This is a key moment to make an assessment and influence the issues under negotiation to ensure progress is not lost in the interests of fact-tracking consensus. The outcome document must establish new ground on a range of issues such as combatting illicit financial flows and global tax cooperation.

Key to this is action on proposals of monitoring and accountability without repeating the mistake of leaving follow-up and review to insufficient processes. Several proposals are on the table. They range from integrating the existing FfD monitoring track into the follow-up for the Post-2015 Agenda and the work of the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development to creating a set of specialized bodies under the auspices of the United Nations. These would not just monitor outcomes and implementation but also carry forward the agenda with the development of new instruments and policies. One proposal, for example, is to supplement the existing expert committee on international cooperation on tax with an intergovernmental tax body with universal membership. Only in this manner, or by similar systemic reforms, proponents argue, could the challenges of the current global economic system be addressed.


Panelists include

  • Dominik Ziller, Deputy Director General Global processes, financing for development, effectiveness, Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, Germany
  • Aldo Caliari, Center of Concern/CIDSE
  • Nicole Bidegain, Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN)
  • Tove Ryding, Eurodad
  • Tessa Khan, Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD)


Moderator: Wolfgang Obenland, Global Policy Forum

Due to the ongoing intergovernmental negotiations, this program may be subject to short-term changes. Please check the program for updates here.

Please RSVP by sending an email to sabaloftus@globalpolicy.org by Tuesday, 16 June.

Bonn: June 1st 15h. Side Event Invitation: RCP2.6-MCJ IPCC MITIGATION UNDER CLIMATE JUSTICE PER CAPITA & RESURBE PROGRAM

.

Dear friends,
 
Let us announce and specially invite you to the following side event in Bonn UNFCCC (ADP 2-9):
 
Mon, 01 Jun 2015 / 15:00-16:30h / Room: Berlin
1st PART (15:00-16:05h)
 
QUANTIFIED PROPOSAL – BASED ON CRITERIA OF CLIMATE JUSTICE PER CAPITA – OF THE DISTRIBUTION AMONG THE UNFCCC STATE PARTIES OF THE EMISSIONS MITIGATION GLOBAL OBJECTIVE DEFINED BY SCENARIO RCP2.6 OF THE IPCC’S AR5
Martin Khor (South Centre Director):     WHY THIS PROPOSAL IS INTERESTING?
Josep Xercavins & Olga Alcaraz (professors UPC):  PROPOSAL PRESENTATION
Rep. Norway delegation:                                            REACTION TO THE PROPOSAL
                                                                                                                         Open debate!
 
[…] the major obstacle in international negotiations on climate change is, and always has been, reaching an agreement on how much each state party of the UNFCCC  should contribute to the immense efforts (which are both essential and imminent) to reduce GHG emissions, particularly CO2 […]
 
[…] we wanted put forward a proposal that, developed around strong and clear criteria, could offer results within this framework, and which would be able to help the international community to achieve a much-needed positive final agreement at Paris 2015
And we know now that: “In order to achieve the objective/assumption of not exceeding a 2°C rise in surface temperature [...], from all the RCP’s (Representative Concentration Pathways) considered, only one of them have a “likely” probability to achieve the objective: the RCP2.6 of IPCC’s AR5”.
[…] the most important element of RCP2.6 is not so much its trajectory over time, but rather the surface that it defines (and which many other trajectories could define), and which represent the exact global carbon budget that can still be released into the atmosphere in accordance with the criterion of not exceeding an increase of 2°C of the Earth’s surface temperature, when compared with that of the pre-industrial era: approximately 1000GtCO2. [...]
 
The main result of applying our MCJ model is determining the quantified distribution of possible future emissions for each of the state parties if we attend to the criterion of climate justice per capita that has been accepted, developed and computerised.
 
So, in summary, we talk about:
THE CARBON BUDGETS THAT WILL PREVENT THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF THE EARTH’S 
SURFACE FROM INCREASING BY 
MORE THAN 2°C WHEN COMPARED 
WITH THE TEMPERATURE OF 
THE PRE-INDUSTRIAL 
ERA
 
JOSEP XERCAVINS & OLGA ALCARAZ (PROFESSORS UPC -TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY OF CATALONIA)
 
PS: a print copy of the “Proposal book” will be available for assistants to the side event!

TOMORROW 14 April, 1:15pm: The Geopolitics of Financing Post-2015 side event

Dear colleagues,
For those of you in New York for FfD, Regions Refocus 2015, Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN), and Third World Network (TWN) would like to invite you to a side event to the second drafting session towards the Third Conference on Financing forDevelopment (FfD3). Titled The Geopolitics of Financing Post-2015: Regional and Feminist Analysis, the event will be co-convened with the Permanent Missions of Uruguay and Egypt, and will feature Ambassador Gonzalo Koncke, Permanent Representative of Uruguay to the UN and Tamer Mostafa, Counsellor, Permanent Mission of Egypt to the UN, along with Brazil‘s Deputy Permanent Representative Guilherme de Aguiar Patriota and Amit Narang, Counsellor, Permanent Mission of India to the UN.
To be held tomorrow, 14 April, from 1:15 to 2:30 in Conference Room 9, this event will feature a dynamic dialogue between governments and civil society on some of the fundamental issues of the FfD agenda, including:
-        Domestic Resource Mobilization and ODA: Complementary, or displacement of developed country responsibility?
-        Private Finance: A threat to the global partnership?
-        Debt: multilateral restructuring or vulture culture?
-       Trade and Systemic Issues: Can the UN level the playing field?
​The discussions will draw upon A Geopolitical Analysis of FfD3, put together by Regions Refocus, Third World Network, and DAWN several weeks ago. ​
​Please see the full concept note attached. The event will be moderated by Stefano Prato, Managing Director of Society for International Development (SID) and will feature remarks from Nicole Bidegain, Executive Committee member of DAWN and Bhumika Muchhala, ​Senior Policy Analyst of the Finance and Development Programme at Third World Network, as well as myself sharing perspectives from the nine regional workshops of Regions Refocus 2015.

Peace,

Dear Paul or whoever gets this. 

IBON Int. is one of 4 sponsors for a meeting to be held on Tuesday ar the Church Cemnter across the street from the UN, from 8:45 to 10:45. 

As you know, the building is on First Avenue, directly across the street from the UN.  There is a problem.  The heigjhtened security for the High Level Meeting of the GA means that the police will not let amnyone past Second Avenue.   

How are we to get to that site? 

I hope someone can solve this, because I’m sure many will be disappointed. 

In friendship,

Mary Gilbert
