“The USA, the UK & the EU have wasted hours and hours [...] playing a naked game of self interest.”

The Bonn Climate Conference (#SB58) — a crucial international summit which will shape the response to the #ClimateCrisis — ended yesterday.

🧵Here's what you need to know... 1/7
The #SB58 is where the agenda & priorities for the next major international climate summit #COP28 are shaped.

Our Director @chilledasad100 has been exposing wealthy countries refusing their responsibilities & demanding that #ClimateJustice is at the centre of that agenda. 2/7
In the conference rooms, and in the hallways, we have been demanding a different route forward — one that prioritises the rights and interests of people and planet, and not the profits of corporations. 3/7

The #BonnClimateConference failed once again to address the key drivers of the #ClimateCrisis [= #FossilFuels]. Delay is the new Denialism.
A 🧵on the #FalseSolutions increasingly being pushed in the @UNFCCC negotiations: #CCS #CDR & #geoengineering are dangerous distractions!
Science is crystal clear, the only way to meaningfully reduce emissions is a rapid, equitable, full & funded phase-out of ALL fossil fuels. In this essential #JustTransition, there's is NO space for dangerous distractions such as #CCS or #CarbonRemoval.…
#CCS is NOT a climate solution @CA_Latest…
#CCS may carry even more risk & uncertainty than drilling for oil or gas, according to @ieefa_institute…

1/25. Today is the ninth day of the #BonnClimateConference (#SB58) and it saw the continuation of discussions on the #SantiagoNetwork for #LossAndDamage, a number of excellent side events, and importantly the adoption of the agenda. Here are some of our highlights!🧵 Image
2/25. This morning kicked off with three #LossAndDamage side events happening at the same time! Sadly we could not get to them all, but the good news is that there are webcasts with which to revisit them.
3/25. They included: "#HumanRights, #ClimateChange and disaster induced migration and #Displacement: Regional Perspectives" with @UUSC, @esperance_ong, @ALIANZAAMERICAS.

1/6. At the 2023 #BonnClimateConference (#SB58) @harjeet11 of @CANIntl explains why the issue of corruption must not be used as an excuse to delay #ClimateFinance including the filling of the #LossAndDamage Fund agreed at #COP27.🧵 Image
2/6. “When talking about #ClimateFinance, the issue of corruption keeps coming up and yes there is a challenge there. "
3/6. “But why are we just talking about developing countries, in developed countries we also have corruption, legalising lobbying is corruption, double counting #ClimateFinance is corruption.”

1/4. “When we talk about #Equity, developing countries will also practise #Equity. Trust them.” @harjeet11 of @CANIntl explains why developing countries must be able to decide who can access support from the #LossAndDamage Fund at the #BonnClimateConference (#SB58). 🧵 Image
2/4. “All developing countries should be eligible [to access the #LossAndDamage Fund] and it is important to keep that language for unity. We know that it is LDC’s, SIDs & Africa that are going to be prioritised. Rich countries should trust developing countries to sort that out.”
3/4. “When we look at Pakistan, when we look at Colombia, Philippines, they don't fall in those categories, so how are you going to support them? If developing countries can decide, there can be a response when needed."

1/4.@harjeet11 of @CANIntl highlights the progress made so far via the Transitional Committee of the #LossAndDamage and the #GlasgowDialogue on #LossAndDamage at the #BonnClimateConference (#SB58). Image
2/4. So far Parties have recognised:

1⃣The need for the #LossAndDamage fund to be flexible, programmatic and have different windows;

2⃣The need for trigger based disbursement;

3⃣The need for #LossAndDamage to not cause debt;
3/4. Whilst on of the big challenges we still face in operationalising a fit-for-purpose #LossAndDamage Fund at #COP28 is:

"Rich countries look at the #LossAndDamage Funding Arrangements rather that the placing a much bigger role than the #LossAndDamage Fund."

1/38. Today is the eighth day of the #BonnClimateConference (#SB58) and it saw the closing plenary of the Technical Dialogue of the #GST, discussions on the #SantiagoNetwork, the continuation of the #NCQG’s 6th Technical Expert Dialogue and the first stocktaking plenary. 🧵 Image
2/38. Today also saw a focus on #HumanRights with a number of side events and an action drawing attention to the key message that “there can be no #ClimateJustice without #HumanRights”.
3/38. Joining "No #ClimateJustice without #CivicSpace and #HumanRights: zooming in on the @UNFCCC process"* with @ciel_tweets, @amnesty and @350, we heard important messages on the need for safe #CivicSpace under the @UNFCCC so that we can make our #LossAndDamage demands heard!

Update: After the previous meeting, the facilitators produced this draft decision:…

We came back together yesterday afternoon, and it was NOT pretty or encouraging. Apparently the concept of a Just Transition is objectionable to some Parties at #SB58
The US, UK, Australia, and Japan all took the floor in quick succession to brashly insist on a few points which are inaccurate (e.g. that the mandate of the work programme is severely restricted, when in fact it is to discuss pathways for achieving the goals of Paris)
But whether or not their interpretation is correct, it is alarming to see such a violent reaction to the idea that we should discuss the social and economic aspect of the impacts of the implementation of the Paris Agreement, ie the Just Transition.

1/30. Today is the seventh day of the #BonnClimateConference (#SB58) and it saw an intense second plenary on the adoption of the agenda, discussions on the #SantiagoNetwork and the start of the New Collective Quantified Goal’s 6th Technical Expert Dialogue on #ClimateFinance.🧵 Image
2/30. This morning kicked of with the event “Linking #LossAndDamage to Conflict Affected and Fragile Settings” held alongside the #BonnClimateConference (#SB58) with @FriEnt_news, @IDOS_research and @BROT_furdiewelt. Key messages included:
3/30. Steffen Bauer of @IDOS_research: “#LossAndDamage has become a reality even only at 1.1°C degree of heating. It puts lives and livelihoods at risk today…Every increment of warming that we can avoid makes a difference.” Image

1/3. ⚠️BREAKING ⚠️: The second plenary of the #BonnClimateConference (#SB58) has closed without the adoption of the agenda. This means that all work done at #SB58 could be lost. Consultations will now continue to try to find a way to adopt the agenda at the closing plenary. Image
2/3.The issue at stake is the inclusion of a new agenda item proposed by the LMDC group and supported by the G77 and China, ALBA and AILAC on "scaling up ambition for #MitigationFinace". With the LMDC saying that it will not allow the agenda to include the #MitigationWorkplan.
3/3.The EU and others have said they wont adopt the agenda without the issue of #Mitigation being discussed. However within the plenary, many developing countries made it very clear that discussions on #Mitigation must include finance to deliver concrete #Mitigation action!

1/5. “It's the first time that no one is ignoring #LossAndDamage or talking #LossAndDamage under #Adaptation, especially developing countries who want to avoid their historic responsibility.” @SabineMinninger of @BROT_furdiewelt #BonnClimateConference (#SB58).🧵 Image
2/5. “What is needed is a #LossAndDamage Fund under the @UNFCC, with needs based finance, a window for rapid onset events, a window for slow onset and importantly a window for small grants directly accessible to communities.”
3/5. “Developed countries are pointing heavily to existing funding arrangements. But this will not do. We need finance that is additional to Official Development Assistance (ODA), additional to #Mitigation, and additional to #Adaptation.”

Es kursieren viele Schätzungen zur #LossAndDamage-Finance. Die Neueste schätzt die summierte Entschädigungspflicht der Overshoot- ing countries (des Nordens) für die Undershooting countries (des Südens) für den Zeitraum 2020 and 2050 auf US$192 (141–298) Billionen (trillion).
Hinweis: Das gilt unter der Annahme, dass alle Länder des Nordens das Ziel der Klimaneutralität #NetZero im 2050 erreichen, allein aus historischer Verantwortung.

#LossAndDamage ist hier (#SB58) das beherrschende Thema. Nach jahrzehntelanger Enttäuschung der finanziellen Zusagen von Kopenhagen (2009!) liegen alle Hoffnungen der Entwicklungsländer auf der - aus Ihrer Sicht - auf #COP27 errungenen UN-Sonderfonds. Soweit die #Psychologie. Image
Rechtlich - und von der Sache- ist das Thema zu komplex um einfach als „Zusatztopf“ der UN eingestuft zu werden, da es um kollektive und individuelle humanitäre Notlagen geht. Hier ist gezielte Mittelvergabe wichtiger als mehr.
Ökonomisch führt zwischenstaatlicher Schadensersatz am Ende in ein #Nullsummenspiel.

Last stage before #COP28 is #SB58! For @UFZ_de on site report @RSchwarze
Hefty work load, unprecedented number of mandated events, efficiency needed. Negotiations texts t.b. expected on Wednesday, June, 14th, at 6 p.m.. Ready to comment at the location! #SB58
The number of mandates are „standing“ (from old and very old work programmed such Nairobi, #Adapation) and „new“ ones (arising of the firework of decisions of #COP26 and #COP27 such as funding and finance of #LossAndDamage). Ready to explain from 17 h CET today, just contact me.
