Today in the morning G77 meeting a South Asian country has called out for more engagement of civil society since they believe that there is very less engagement from Civil Society organizations from south. They said, “We have to encourage southern NGOs and they should be benefited. The country also encourages delegates of other countries to join the contact group to support this issue”.
So this to encourage southern NGOs to please stand up ! Since some of the governments are asking for your support and working towards lobbying it.
What could you do?
Follow the process live at www.unfccc.org and keep writing in to us with questions, objections , and lobbying points
Also in specific what you could do refer to the blog on how and why Kyoto needs to be saved. We need you all to mobilise and drive actions to encourage your respective diplomatic missions to start putting pressure on the Japanese Government and emphasize on the relevance of the Kyoto.
So get up and get working!
