Draft text frm #COP26 president on #Science:
1. π‘…π‘’π‘π‘œπ‘”π‘›π‘–π‘§π‘’π‘  the importance of best available science for effective #climateaction
& #policymaking;
2. π‘Šπ‘’π‘™π‘π‘œπ‘šπ‘’π‘  contribution of WG1 to #IPCC #AR6 & looks forward to related
@IPCC_CH reports;
@teriin @COP26
3. 𝐸π‘₯π‘π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘ π‘ π‘’π‘  π‘Žπ‘™π‘Žπ‘Ÿπ‘š π‘Žπ‘›π‘‘ π‘π‘œπ‘›π‘π‘’π‘Ÿπ‘› that human activities have caused around 1.1Β°C of
#globalwarming to date & that impacts are already being felt in every region;
#COP26 @COP26 #TogetherForOurPlanet
4. π‘†π‘‘π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘ π‘ π‘’π‘  the urgency of increased ambition & action in relation to #mitigation,
#adaptation & #finance in this critical decade to address gaps betwn current efforts &
#pathways in pursuit of ultimate objective of the Convention & its long-term global goal;
Para 1&2 recognises #Science & it's critical role in #policymaking. Many times this recognition has been absent. #COP25 suffered from this & changes in text at last minute were seen:
Read @down2earthindia article for more: downtoearth.org.in/news/climate-c…
Para 3 attributes #human influence for recent #warming. Many countries have objected this in past. Read the @IISD_ENB summary on approval session for @IPCC_CH #AR6 #WGI #SPM to know more: enb.iisd.org/sites/default/…
Para 4 regards this decade as critical & stresses to achieve the promises laid out in #ParisAgreement.
The draft text by #cop26 president gives an indication that @COP26 is trying to strengthen the Paris agreement but many issues still unclear:
No clarity on finance support to developing nations despite their repeated appeals. No specifics on how will #climatefinance be aligned to developing nations by the developed nations. This always have remained the Achilis heel.
While the draft encourages countries to phase out #coal & #fossilfuel subsidies, it remains to be seen if this makes to final text. If it does, this would be for first time any #COP document carries the mention.
The discussions on #Risk & #resilience have been resonating @COP26 much more than its predecessors, with focus on loss and damage getting much needed centerstage. Locally led adaptation is crucial in enhancing preparedness towards #disasters & #climatechange impacts.
US$350 mill commitment to Adaptation Fund remains the highest single mobilization, however it remains to be seen in final text on the enhanced commitments on #Adaptation #finance & clarity on paths to address loss & damage. @COP26 can't afford to fail,its #CodeRedForHumanity

@ipcc_ch reports that b/w 1971 & 2010, oceans absorbed over 90% of the heat gained by the planet due to #globalwarming. This led to #sealevel rise and has also resulted in higher frequency & intensity of #cyclones worldwide. #ClimateChange #MumbaiMustPrepare @mumbaismagic
Indian Ocean has also warmed but what is worrying is the higher rate of #warming in comparison to other global ocean basins. Data shows that Indian Ocean’s rapid basin-wide warming of ~1degC over the last 60 yrs exceeds that of the global average of ~0.7 degC. #MumbaiMustPrepare
Arabian Sea & Bay of Bengal have also seen consistent warming in past decades. The trend in rise in sea surface temperature for BoB has been 0.16C/decade & 0.18C/decade for AS. Arabian Sea indeed has been warming quite rapidly and impacts are for us to see. #MumbaiMustPrepare
