COP25 Pre-2020 Stocktake, Kavita Naidu

Madrid, Spain (Dec 04, 2019) – Kavita Naidu from the Asia-Pacific Forum on Women Law and Development reminded parties that the Pre-2020 ambition was developed to lay the foundation for the NDC enhancement. She called out the stark contrast between the urgent need for action made clear in recent IPCC reports and only 68 countries having enhanced their ambition so far, representing only 8% of the global emissions. She urges parties to increase their efforts for gender equality,to protect human rights and deliver on climate finance to achieve just and equitable solutions to the climate crisis.
