As we wrote last week, the two items at the U.N. climate talks in Bonn that Corporate Accountability is following most closely are the call for a conflict-of-interest policy (the first step toward addressing Big Polluters’ interference in climate policymaking), and the discussions on finalizing guidelines for a section of the Paris Agreement called Article 6, which deals with international collaboration on addressing the climate crisis.
Negotiations around a conflict-of-interest policy heated up last week, and those conversations will continue. Meanwhile, we expect Article 6 negotiations to rise in prominence this coming week as well.
If you’re interested in getting into the weeds on Article 6, what it’s really about, and why the climate justice community is calling for real, just solutions to address climate change over industry-driven market-based schemes, check out this blog post by our ally Souparna Lahiri of Global Forest Coalition.
And for more on what our other partners across the climate justice movement are organizing and calling for here in Bonn, check out this ongoing blog series from the Global Campaign to Demand Climate Justice.
As always, check back here for updates from the ground, including urgent actions you can take to support the movement for real, just solutions to address the climate crisis. Thank you for all you do!
