APA 1-2 Opening, Nkiruka Nnaemego

Marrakech, Morocco (November, 7, 2016) – Nkiruka Nnaemego focused the opening intervention of the APA on NDC implementation, raising concerns that current NDCs are inadequate to meet the objectives of the Paris agreement and fail to respect the principles of the convention, in particular CBDR. Additionally, the intervention reiterated that NDCs should include not only elements of the Paris agreement but also elements of the Preamble, in particular, gender equality, human rights, just transitions and the rights of Indigenous Peoples.
