Updates from the Front 10

SBI defrocked, NWP Beatified, Agri on the Way to Sainthood

On Agriculture

They did let G77/China put forward a text.

Then they emasculated it by literally blowing the 3 pillars of the G77/China core positions with their anti-adaptation, anti-CBDR, and anti-means of implementation land mines.

They don’t want any mention of “in developing countries” in adaptation.

They want “impact of agriculture in climate change” vis-à-vis “impact of climate change in agriculture”.

So Karim walked like an Egyptian that he is as Julia (Argentina) threw corned beef all around.

On Nairobi Work Program

We held 2 final informal drafting groups yesterday and cleaned up a lot of the annex text.

Our position, however, is to bracket the whole text on annex as inputs will still come from the submission of parties between and COP 19.

On Loss and Damage

We proceeded with our coordination meeting and decided to hold 2 more informal informal meetings with our partners to continue fishing for their ideas on the functions, modalities, and activities of the institutional arrangement.

Your delegation has been actively involved in this work stream by forwarding our ideas, cleaning the G77/China text, and pushing the positioning process to a fast forward.

Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!
