PIA Press Release

RP pushes early deep cut of CO2 emissions

by T. Villavert

Iloilo City (17 June) -- If the world is to avert climate change, then industrialized countries should come up with interventions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The Philippines which is one of the countries vulnerable to the immediate impacts of climate change, has submitted interventions that call for deep and early cut of CO2 emissions by Annex I Parties of more than 30-40 percent from 2013 to 2017, and more than 50 percent from 2018 to 2022 based on 1990 levels. The deep and early cut will moderate, if not avert, the accelerating destructive storms brought about by Climate Change.

Secretary Heherson T. Alvarez, who was tasked by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to head the Philippine delegation to Bonn said “we have come together recognizing our collective and individual interests that put ASEAN people first, in its vision, in its policies, and in its action plans.

The Malacanang press report disclosed that the former senator invited parties in the ASEAN to form “synergies” at the on-going climate change negotiations in fundamental issues that will moderate, if not avert, the impact of Climate Change and to urge developing countries like China and India to limit growth of their greenhouse gas emissions.

The report also disclosed that the Philippine chief negotiator Secretary Heherson T. Alvarez discussed with the Executive Secretary Yvo de Boer of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the developments of the climate change negotiations.

According to Alvarez, Secretary de Boer welcomed the Philippine initiative calling for a coherent and integrated strategy on climate change adaption and finance and technology.

De Boer also lauded the country's commitment to play an active role in the current negotiation process in order to reach an agreement in Copenhagen, the Malacanang press report disclosed. (PIA 6) [top]
