UNFCCC COP23/CMA Closing, Women and Gender Constituency Statement

BONN, Germany (Scheduled Nov 17, 2017; Delivered Nov 18, 2017, 6:00 am CET)

Chiara Soletti, on behalf of the Women and Gender Constituency, in COP23/CMA joint closing plenary, thanked the Fijian Presidency for their commitment towards making COP23 a success. Yet, she also warned all Parties that this COP was characterized by slow progress and insufficient commitments. Whereas the adoption of the Gender Action Plan as well as of the Local Communities and Indigenous Peoples Platform were milestones, funding for loss and damage was not put on the table.
