Talanoa Dialogue Opening, Kalyani Raj

BONN, Germany (May 02, 2018) –Kalyani Raj of AIWC, in Talanoa Dialogue opening, welcomed in her statement the decision of the UN and the Parties for initiating the process of Talanoa dialogue, and the work the COP Presidency has put into designing this trust-building approach. Altough she showed understanding for the desire, to avoid ‘finger-pointing’, she also emphasised that in the quest to establish ambition, all participants must not lose the opportunity for frank and critical dialogue. She reminded that in the end everything in the science and daily experience tells that the world is so late as current commitments lead to a 3 degree+ rise scenario. Therefor she requested immediate ambition rising.
