WORKING GROUP ON ACTION STRATEGIES

(Action Plan of the Peoples Agreement)

Aware of the importance to join efforts to support the fight for the Defense of Mother Earth, the participants of the WPCCC call for the creation of a “Global Movement of Peoples for Mother Earth“, to make possible the unification of social forces to Defend Mother Earth and Life, to face climate change and capitalism.

The outcome of a negotiation is the expression of a determined correlation of forces. We can only rectify the current course of negotiations if we achieve the active, purposeful, and mobilized participation of peoples throughout the world.

What plan of action must we reach at the World People’s Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of the Mother Earth? What forms of mobilization, organization, communication, capacity-building, legal action, lobbying, etc., must we develop at local, national, and international levels in order to have an impact both inside and outside of climate change talks?

This working group is responsible for proposing a global plan of action.

Objectives

 • Establish a comprehensive strategy and a global action plan of the peoples and civil society, with proposals for effective action to tackle climate change and defending life and Mother Earth.

• Develop proposals to redirect the process of negotiations under the United Nations, which were weakened in Copenhagen, ensuring the implementation of the second period of the Kyoto Protocol and the full, effective and sustained implementation of the convention.

• Develop proposals for creative and effective alternative actions for positioning and deploying CMPCC results to address climate change and defending life and Mother Earth.

Discussion Questions

How to implement the proposals that come out of the CMPCC?

How to redirect negotiations along the way to gear them towards expected results?

Considering the followin elements, what is our negotiating strategy for the COP 16: the “Copenhagen Accord,” the positions of developing countries during the COP 15 and beyond, the EU statement?

What can people do to be taken into consideration by governments (local, regional and international) and in information processes, decision making and to exercise control or social evaluation of their implementation?

What are the actions that people can implement to address climate change?

Is it necessary to create organs of permanent coordination and participation among people and civil society between these groups and governments, and among governments themselves?

Within the framework of the strategy, which actions should be part of the action plan, with whom and when should they be implemented?

What should be the strategies of governments regarding their commitment to the defense of life and mother earth in the negotiations?

What types of partnerships should be supported and strengthened in the hopes of making progress in negotiating a new framework that will achieve the peoples’ short term and long term objectives at COP 16 in Mexico? Read the rest of this entry »

(by Bernarditas Muller, Group of 77 and China Lead Coordinator for the ad hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action, AWG-LCA, 2008-2009) 12 March 2010 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY 

The failure of Copenhagen was not a failure of the multilateral process.  On the contrary, Copenhagen failed because the open, transparent and intergovernmental process of negotiations under the United Nations system was discarded and set aside deliberately by the developed countries which worked to undermine this process all throughout the two years before Copenhagen. 

This paper provides an analysis of the process that led to the final chaotic plenary which marked the dramatic failure of Copenhagen.  It also puts forward an analysis of the Copenhagen Accord, the “deal” that came out of Copenhagen, in terms of its consistency, or inconsistency, with the actual negotiating texts under the current intergovernmental process of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC, referred to as the Convention in this text).

REPORT OF WG 16

STRATEGIES FOR ACTION

Recognizing that all beings are children of Mother Earth, which is not an inert object, but rather is alive, and being aware that while we are not in balance with Mother Earth we—people, animals, plants and all beings as a whole—are ill.

Today from Bolivia, we declare the world to be in a state of emergency and call on all world’s peoples and their organizations to mobilize and on governments to raise awareness and commitment to defend Mother Earth, adopting a lifestyle in which all walk together and nobody is left behind, a way of life that offers all to everyone and in which no-one lacks anything Read the rest of this entry »
