Cancun Agreement Citation

In agriculture, expectations for a work programme were discussed and key elements for the sector, including trade, adaptation, food security and the participation of indigenous peoples. Many parties have spoken out in favour of the agricultural text. However, developing countries stressed the need to reach agreement on the general framework before agreeing on the content of the agricultural text or on the continuation of the treatment of bunker fuels, while some parties objected to the lack of agreement on the bunker fuels text. The parties have not reached agreement on this issue. The agreement provides that the parties would use existing channels to provide information on the support provided and obtained, the activities carried out, the progress made, the lessons learned, the challenges and gaps in strengthening adaptation measures. COP/MOP conclusions: In its findings on Croatia`s appeal (FCCC/KP/CMP/2010/L.7), the COP/MOP notes that it has opened the appeal; was unable to complete the review of this item at that meeting; and this item is therefore on the provisional agenda of COP/MOP 7. It also asks the Secretariat to develop a technical document that specifies the procedural requirements and the scope and content of the law applicable to the review of appeals; and the approach taken by bodies formed under other multilateral environmental agreements and other international bodies with regard to the provisions for reviewing the refusal of an ordinary procedure. Ecological and socio-economic resilience is highlighted in the framework, as is the importance of combating climate-related migration. The framework also calls on the parties to explicitly align with the Hyogo Framework of Action, a comprehensive agreement on disaster risk reduction. Some parties have drawn attention to the challenges they face when deciding on items, without knowing whether the text will be part of a legally binding agreement. Many parties stressed the importance of including a long-term overall emission reduction target and provisions to revise a common vision.

Some have called for a peak year to be taken into account. Some parties objected to references to „historical responsibility” and „atmospheric space.” The parties also discussed the extent to which the text should contain what needs to be achieved and how it should be achieved. Yemen, for the G-77/CHINE, recognized the need to respect the balance between the two negotiating paths and stressed that the outcome should not be compromised or prejudged the overall objective of achieving a comprehensive, fair, ambitious and legally binding outcome in the future. Australia, for the Umbrella Group, said Cancun should help prepare a legally binding agreement that contains commitments from all major economies. It called for progress in surveillance, reporting and verification (MRV) as well as in international consultation and analysis (ICA).

He said that he was realistic and stressed that the commitments made by the parties to Schedule I under the Kyoto Protocol cannot be defined here, but that there was agreement on a second commitment period. Through REDD, Norway and Ecuador reported on the main outstanding issues: funding; The scope of a REDD mechanism The link between the national and sub-national levels; and MRV security.
