SBI Closing, Alina Saba, COP21

PARIS, France (December 5, 2015) — On Saturday, Alina Saba from Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD) on behalf of the Constituency, provided a statement for the closing of the 43nd Session of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI). Due to delays in the programme, she was unable to deliver the intervention in person, yet the written statement shared by the UNFCCC Secretariat highlighted that all efforts at COP21 will be “useless if we do not have a gender responsive, binding, agreement and a strong monitoring and implementation mechanism which guarantees that emitting countries meet their obligations to end their harmful emissions, provide reparations and leave us space to develop”.
