UN Initiative To Mobilize Climate Financing Going “Very Well”, Says Jamaica PM

KINGSTON, Jamaica, Saturday October 5,
2019
– Prime
Minister Andrew Holness, says the political initiative being led by himself and
President of France, Emmanuel Macron, to mobilize climate financing to support
the implementation of the Paris Agreement has been going “very well”.

“We have
come up with some excellent ideas on how this can be done and we will be
marketing this all around the world,” he said.

“We have
started and countries are making greater pledges about increasing their work.”

Last year,
at the 73rd Session of the United General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, Holness
and President Macron were asked by UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, to
mobilise the Government and private-sector support in raising US$100 billion
per year in climate finance by 2020.

The UN
Secretary-General said that the funds were needed to address the mitigation and
adaptation needs of developing countries.

He noted
that within the context of the Paris Agreement, developed countries have
reaffirmed the pledge made at the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in
2009, to mobilise $100 billion per year from a combination of public and
private sources.

Prime
Minister Holness, in noting the importance of the initiative, said that “we
know from where we are living that there are changes that are happening in our
climate, which are leading to disasters”.

“These
disasters obviously have a human impact… a dislocating and devastating human
impact. It is important to know, though, that there is also a fiscal impact…
meaning the ability of the country to finance recovery. So, we have to do our
part in figuring out ways to finance after a weather event that creates a
disaster and how do we finance before a weather event that is likely to create
a disaster,” he said.

Meanwhile, Holness
said that Jamaica is looking to work with the United States to strengthen the
island’s disaster resilience.

He noted that he met with Vice President Mike Pence at the White House and “we had a very good conversation on how Jamaica and the United States can work closer in ensuring that there is a good plan in place for disaster recovery and resilience”.
