Notes – Bonn, CSO meeting with Jonathan Pershing, US climate envoy

Dear all,

Here are notes from yesterday’s CSO meeting with Jonathan Pershing:

Intro: If NDCs are successful this round, it will mean a successful second round. Mid century strategy is something the US takes seriously. The agreement is increasingly only a piece of a larger series of pieces – the SDGs, trade agreements, all to be considered in the process going forward.CSO question: Warsaw international mechanism on loss and damage – at COP22 must review and come up with new work program. The issue has moved into the practical sphere and no longer is in the controversial sphere. Concrete recommendations that should be accepted by 20 member executive committee. 
Response: Hopefully multiple perspectives present in the room can lead to thorough review. 

Paul UCS question: What are the real accomplishments we can get out of Marrakesh, like capacity building for fleshing out NDCs, use of facilitative dialogue of climate champions to move 2020 action? There are some outliers that still don’t consider the Paris Agreement – G77 is talking about promoting coal. Have we lost momentum and gone back to old ways? How can we keep people focused?
Response: Early entry into force. We have committed to it with the Chinese, they will do it before the G20. I’m not 100% optimistic but we may be able to get there if not this year then next year. Montreal Protocol could avoid as much as a half a degree of warming, if you don’t get there I don’t know how you get to 1.5 at all. Signal marks of global intent. Laurence has prioritized the NDC work and the mid century strategy. I’m interested in your more precise thinking on those, how do you think about transition from generic design of INDC to concrete implementation? Metrics to be more effective for countries to meet commitments that are voluntary, that they themselves have set. Clean Energy Solutions Center is limited to government agencies, support for clean energy proposals from countries. I think Paris will be a high point for a while, we will have to keep referring to it for a while, should hold people accountable to it, and you do this well. NGO community is more nimble in terms of how you can frame things and how you can talk to governments, you can help push us to do the right things. 

CSO question: Global stocktake?
Response: Need to see what people bring to the table. IPCC report to be released in 2018 on pathway to 1.5. In one or two years we will have more information on costs. 

Oxfam question: Financial flows to adaptation. Can this be addressed in Marrakesh? Quantified goal for this. Would US be supportive of this in Marrakesh?
Response: US agreed to double adaptation financing, Germany and UK have made commitments too. Report that was produced counts things in different ways. I don’t disagree that cost of adaptation is higher than amount that is made available, we are thinking about who can allocate resources and find additional resources. Bonds is where infrastructure gets paid, if you put in resilience, you can increase investment in good projects that pay back, that are not exposed. This may unlock new resources. Scale of infrastructure requirements for water, coastal, bridges – trillions of dollars of assets will be exposed. We will not pay for those, the resources are not adequate in this Convention. How do we catalyze private sector investment, how do we leverage capital I do have, to invest and grow income. I’m not aware of another way to get there. I’m not convinced that an overarching numerical goal is the best way to get there, how do you count it, if there is an accountability structure, liability, etc, not sure if its the best use of our time. We just got through that issue, though not too well. 

CSO question: Mid century strategy, what will go in there? How is US and Canada model a model for other countries?
Response: Not far along enough yet. There is no single pathway, want to think about robust policies. Need some of everything you can imagine and some things we can’t imagine yet. Low cost has renewable, nuclear, carbon capture and storage, etc – pathway suggested by IPCC. Another model is to move current main energy sources lower and to increase renewables. Mission Innovation model – seek to double R&D in the US and in other developed countries. Battery technology. We can model that, but we don’t have price predictors. We will try to do scenarios, and also think about impact discussions. Take a look at number of nuclear plants exposed to water reduction constraints, for example. A number of our significant facilities are exposed, have shut them down at times of drought. We are open to bringing these kinds of things to the table. We probably have more capacity than other countries, think about how our own modeling tools can be used by others, European countries and some developing countries too. This may engender the level of technology we need. 

Best,

Majandra

During his momentous time as Secretary-General of the UN, Kofi Annan played a decisive role in launching the Millennium Development Goals, establishing the International Criminal Court, and creating the Global Compact. These and other crucial events are encapsulated in Mr. Annan’s forthcoming book of speeches, “We the Peoples: A UN for the 21st Century”, to be published in the spring of 2014.

Bonn ADP Draft Text Tuesday early morning release

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

From the input on Monday, the Co-Chairs refined the text, here is a copy for you to review, http://unfccc.int/files/meetings/bonn_oct_2015/application/pdf/master_na_od_lt2_.pdf
Your comments are most welcome.  Given only 3 days left the Co-Chairs are pushing hard to keep member states focused, working hard towards a more coherent document by the 23rd.  Your thoughts are even more important now with the closed working meetings [not new, for example in Cancun there were many such working groups to make the work more doable]  really important plus any notes on the various sections.
A reminder: go to  http://unfccc.int/2860.php   scroll halfway down to view live web cast of the plenary sessions, now a report out on progress.

Linkages: Creating a “Climate Knowledge Grid” – Climate Knowledge Brokers Outreach Event, 14:00-17:30, June 22, 2015, UN City, Copenhagen + live stream

2015 CKB Outreach Event: Creating a “Climate Knowledge Grid”

An open session and cocktail reception to learn what climate knowledge brokers are doing to connect up climate knowledge, and discuss how your organisation can benefit and ‘plug in’ to the ‘climate knowledge grid’.

14:00-17:30, June 22, 2015 – UN City, Copenhagen and on live stream. Organized by the CKB group jointly with CTCN, CDKN and REEEP

Are you getting lost in an ocean of information?

The fields of climate and development have undergone radical transformations over the past decades as the world has woken up to the perils of climate change. At the same time, information and communication technologies (ICTs) have revolutionised the way we communicate, bringing many benefits – but also new problems.  A field once challenged by the lack of reliable and relevant data is now overwhelmed with oceans of information, pouring in from a multitude of sources inhabiting various corners of the climate development community. Today, the challenge is navigating and making sense of this information, overcoming the “portal proliferation syndrome” of climate web sites.

The need for coordination: the role of the Climate Knowledge Brokers Group

The Climate Knowledge Brokers Group (CKB) is a Community of Practice of knowledge brokers operating in the climate and development space who recognized that the current knowledge infrastructure is ineffective in delivering the right knowledge to those who need it, when they need it. In response, the group is creating practical solutions and methods to improve and streamline information sharing, to better steer the flow of knowledge to those who need it, and to engage and connect researchers, practitioners, policy actors and businesses to drive climate resilient development. The vision is to create a connected ‘grid’ for climate knowledge that is flexible, open and adaptable to changing needs and evolving technology.

Information about the Event

Join us at UN City in Copenhagen for a chance to meet some leading members of the Climate Knowledge Brokers Group, learn about the emerging vision for this ‘climate knowledge grid’ and how decision-makers and other knowledge users will benefit, and discuss how organizations can ‘plug in’.
