Roadmap to a successful Climate Agreement 2015

Warsaw has to lay the foundation for a fair, ambitious and legally-binding agreement in 2015 which transforms how people in all countries use energy. Governments must also commit to doing more to reduce emissions prior to 2020. This is in order to ensure that the world can still stay as far below 2°C as possible. Specifically, governments must:

  • Chart the road to Paris

  • Table post-2020 targets in 2014, not 2015

  • Launch the development of an Equity Reference Framework

  • Don't shelve climate protection until 2015, increase climate action now

  • Establish a mechanism to address loss and damage of homes and livelihoods

  • Respond to the latest science: review the long-term temperature warming limit

  • Fill the climate fund and ensure that climate finance works for the poor

  • Make REDD+ finance about stopping deforestation and protecting forests
