Historic loss and damage response fund to assist and support developing countries is finally established at UN climate summit.

Closing of COP27, Sharm El Sheikh, November, 2022

 

STATEMENT FROM AOSIS CHAIR, THE HONOURABLE MINISTER MOLWYN JOSEPH, ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA

AOSIS promised the world we would not leave Sharm El Sheikh without achieving the establishment of a loss and damage response fund.

A mission thirty years in the making has been accomplished.

We have literally exhausted all of our efforts here at COP27 to bring home the climate action commitments our vulnerable people desperately need.

Our Ministers and negotiators have endured sleepless nights and endless days in an intense series of negotiations, determined to secure the establishment of a loss and damage response fund, keep 1.5 alive, and advance ambition on critical mitigation and adaptation plans.

But after the pain comes the progress.

Today, the international community has restored global faith in this critical process that is dedicated to ensuring no one is left behind.

The agreements made at COP27 are a win for our entire world. We have shown those who have felt neglected that we hear you, we see you, and we are giving you the respect and care you deserve.

Now we must solidify our ties across territories. We must work even harder to hold firm to the 1.5C warming limit, to operationalize the loss and damage fund, and continue to create a world that is safe, fair, and equitable for all.

About AOSIS:

Since 1990, AOSIS has represented the interests of the 39 small island and low-lying coastal developing states in international climate change, sustainable development negotiations and processes.

As a voice for the vulnerable, its mandate is more than amplifying marginalised voices as it also advocates for these countries’ interests.

In terms of size, AOSIS closely resembles the countries it represents on the global stage, but often punches far above its weight, negotiating historic global commitments to cut greenhouse gas emissions, among other achievements.

  1. I wish that he would report to the nation on his role he played in people loved ones being left to rot in the makeshift morgue at Holborn.

    While he is at it give the nation a report of the study from the tesler bought for him to drive around, purchased with taxpayers money

  2. Credit where credit is due by Molwyn Joseph for arranging the climate “reparation” fund from the main perpetrators of the last 200 plus years for the devastating damage to our climate by the industrial revolution (and don’t forget, including two world wars).

    The causation of the industrial revolution by the “first worlds” relentless pursuit of money, is now seen as a direct correlation to the climate damage that we all witness today.

    Climate reparation for the developing countries is not only the right thing to do, but is also morally correct.

    • First off, correlation does not imply causation. I would think that you’d be more sceptical seeing that this is being pushed by the same people that pushed the [email protected] — All while they’re flying to these climate change summits in their private jets.
      Why is it that the other side of this argument is being suppressed? Even this site has been censoring the links being posted about this issue.
      Climate change is not due to our cars or cow farts.
      Which is where their curbing is being directed.
      The CO2 argument has been debunked.
      Earths weakening magnetic fields creates a disproportionate increase in energy flux to the polar regions and that energy directly contributes to storm genesis and intensification.
      Let us demand they allow all the other scientists with opposing views to be heard.

      • I hear you @ Cannabis Indica; as you know I’m no supporter of Molwyn Joseph or the ABLP.

        However, my message was more of a subliminal one to highlight the inconsistencies of the North and South world divide on climate change regarding the reparation payments (opps, or should i say the “climate fund”) to the developing countries.

        I’ll admit that this green debate is as one-sided as the global vaccination programmes, and there is another agenda afoot!

        Have a great day, I always enjoy reading your ANR threads … 👍

  3. Yeah thanks to this brainiac, the clinics are leaking once it’s raining.
    Clinics don’t have water in the pipes but there is water coming through the roof..
    If ANR don’t want to believe, they can send JTruth to investigate

  4. Now that he has finished blowing his trumpet… Sigh, can he please see that the hospital has proper equipment, maintenance and personnel so that people don’t have to DIE waiting for an appointment! Oh Lord man! What a disgrace!
