Differentiation Of Developed And Developing Countries For The Paris Agreement Pdf

Other forms of subtle differentiation related to funding cannot be analysed in NPNs: the results of the communication (Articles 9.5 and 9.7) are not described in NPNs, nor are simplified authorisation procedures and the strengthening of childcare assistance (Article 9.9). First, should future CNN include information on providing financial support, capacity building and technology transfer? It can be argued that climate finance, technology transfer and capacity building reinforce global ambitions to combat climate change and thus achieve the UNFCCC`s goal (Pickering et al. 2015); Rai et al. 2015). However, developed countries have long believed that NDCs should not provide information on the provision of financial resources (IISD, 2014, 2018) and climate change guidelines adopted in Katowice, Poland in 2018 do not require funding for this purpose (UNFCCC, 2018). It can even be argued that there are other reporting formats for communicating on the provision of aid, including the new ex ante communication on climate finance, introduced in Article 9.5 of the Paris Agreement and the biennial transparency reports (the first of which is expected by the end of 2024) in accordance with Article 9.7 and Article 13.10. Although ex ante information probably serves a similar function to the one we are proposing here, the ex post information provided under the Paris Agreement`s transparency framework serves another purpose, namely to show whether donor countries are providing the support they have promised. In addition, it may be important for developing countries that, if they plan to increase their own ambitions at about the same time as developing countries, they receive significant assurances that they will support their NDCs. Finally, the inclusion of information on the granting of aid for 5 years – not every two years – probably reinforces the medium-term predictability of funding.

Climate Action Tracker (2019) Climate Action Tracker. climateactiontracker.org/countries/. Access of 7 July 2019 In order to ensure effective and safe participation, a comprehensive agreement on climate change must be considered fair by the countries concerned. The Paris Agreement has moved closer to differentiating countries` responsibilities in the fight against climate change by removing the rigid distinction between developed and developing countries, by providing for „subtle differentiation“ of certain subgroups of countries (e.B LDCs) on substantive issues (e.g. B climate change financing) and/or for specific procedures (for example. B calendars and reports).
