Who does the future belong to?

Children and young people leading the way on climate change

Thursday, 4th December 2014 

15.00 – 16.30
Room: Sipan

Children are far more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change than adults. Climate change will affect their access to education, to clean drinking water, to nutritious and reliable food, and extreme climatic events threaten lives and livelihoods. However, while it is important and useful to understand children's specific vulnerabilities in these changing contexts, if we are to put their rights at the centre of adaptation actions, we must also understand – and value – their capacity to create change in their communities.


Join us to explore the unique capacity of children to build long-term community level adaptive capacity and help make sector-based development programmes more sustainable in a changing climate.

Dear all,

We are excited to announce that CIFOR's highly popular interactive infographic on multilevel governance in Peru is now available in Spanish too. 

In this infographic, see the overlaps and interconnections between the roles of different government agencies in land-use planning and governance.

Click on the topics and watch the map move before your eyes. You can compare two land uses to see how they relate – so you can see clearly which government departments (and at what level) regulate oil palm, timber,mining, REDD+ and other land uses. The results might surprise you.

A special investigative feature explores the issues in more details. Read it in English or Spanish

Advancing Accountability for Climate Damages

Thursday, December 11, 2014, 11:30 – 13:00

Room Machu Picchu

The panelists will discuss scientific, legal & ethical dimensions of climate responsibility, focusing on the Carbon Majors research that shows that two-thirds of industrial carbon pollution can be traced to just 90 big fossil fuel producers. This panel will explore ways to establish responsibility, seek reparation, and change fossil fuel industry behavior, as well as discuss the practical implementation of Carbon Majors research such as a fossil fuel extraction levy for loss and damage finance.

A COP 20 side-event organised by ICTSD

ICTSD DIALOGUE – 8 December 2014

The International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development, ICTSD, has the pleasure to cordially invite you to a side-event at COP 20 on the Environmental Goods Agreement (EGA) negotiation and its potential to contribute to enhancing climate action.


The event

The side-event will highlight the EGA negotiation, aimed at achieving free movement of environmental goods, and its potential to contribute positively to climate action through the diffusion of climate technologies. The session will also explore a possible role for the Technology Mechanism in this context.


The event will be organised as a high-level interactive panel discussion. The session will also strive to stimulate a discussion with participants from the floor.


After the closing, ICTSD will welcome all participants to a small cocktail reception.

Confirmed speakers

James Bacchus: Chair, Global Practice at Greenberg Traurig
Choi Jai-chul: Ambassador for Climate Change, South Korea Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Ricardo Meléndez-Ortiz: Chief Executive, ICTSD
Jukka Uosukainen: Director, Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN)
Daniele Violetti: Chief of Staff, UNFCCC
Paul Watkinson: Head of Climate Negotiation Team and Chief Negotiator, Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, France



Shifting to a cleaner energy mix is crucial to keep the average global temperature rise below 2-degrees Celsius from pre-industrial levels. To achieve this, costs of renewable energy must go down and markets need to be strengthened in order to enable a steady scale-up of innovation, production and dissemination of renewable energy technologies. Free flows of goods, services and knowledge across borders would contribute to an improved dissemination of and enhanced access to relevant technologies.


The world's leading trading nations are currently negotiating the liberalisation of international cross-border movements of environmental goods, including clean energy technologies. A successful outcome of this so-called EGA negotiation could constitute a positive contribution to COP 21, set to be a pivotal moment for climate action. Indeed, one explicit objective of the EGA negotiation is to contribute to climate action and the work of the UNFCCC.


In order to spur this development, trade ministers need to draw upon the technical expertise which can be found in the UNFCCC and its Technology Mechanism under the Technology Executive Committee (TEC) and the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN). The TEC and the CTCN could both make positive contributions to the EGA negotiation by facilitating the identification of relevant technologies and advising governments involved.

Subject: Launch of the GHG Protocol Mitigation Goal Standard and Policy and Action Standard in Lima - Decemb
Dear all,

The World Resources Institute will be hosting a launch event for two new Greenhouse Gas Protocol Standards to inform government climate change strategies. The event will feature presentations on the new standards and a reception on December 6th from 6-8 pm.

Hotel & Spa Golf Los Incas
Av Cerros De Camacho 500
Santiago de Surco
"Birdie Room"
(a short cab ride away from the negotiations)

These important new standards can help answer some of the most fundamental questions facing our planet going forward:

•       Are countries on track to meet their climate commitments?
•       How effective are specific local or national policies to drive emissions reductions?
•       Will countries' actions add up to limit warming to under 2 degrees Celsius?

Building on previous GHG Protocol standards, the Policy and Action Standard helps evaluate the effectiveness of specific policies or measures in achieving greenhouse gas emissions reductions, empowering policymakers and analysts to better assess and communicate their progress. The Mitigation Goal Standard takes a bigger picture view, enabling governments to determine their emissions trajectory and whether their policy portfolio aligns with reaching their climate goals. Both standards are applicable for all levels of government. At the event, government representatives and other experts will reflect the far reaching significance of these new standards.
