Global Action on Climate Change: A Third World Perspective

ISIS Press Release 24/09/07

Martin Khor stresses the need to link development and environment for developing countries and cooperation between North and South especially in the next period of the Kyoto Protocol

Now is the time to clarify the crucial issues for the Bali meetings this December, which we hope will launch a roadmap for global action to combat climate change, especially after 2012, when the first period of the Kyoto Protocol commitments expires.

For a climate regime that is equitable and fair, there are at least four important building blocks: targets based on a broad scientific consensus; fair North-South relations; linking development and environment; and coherent policies at national and international levels.

Targets based on a broad scientific consensus

Science has progressed to a point where there is broad consensus that climate change is real and serious, and that developing countries will be most affected.

There is a need to set targets for global action, such as to limit temperature rise to 2 degrees centigrade (in fact, well below that), and to prevent greenhouse gas concentration from exceeding 450 parts per million (ppm) of carbon dioxide equivalent. Even at those levels, there will be great damage. At levels higher than that, scientists tell us that the damage will be catastrophic.

However, the establishment of such science-based targets has to be linked to agreement on “burden-sharing” principles, particularly between North and South.
