Haiti - Environment : Minister Jouthe disappointed with the poor record of COP25
Under the leadership of Minister Jouthe, members of the Haitian delegation actively participated in technical and political negotiations alongside other countries and small island developing States. They defended issues relating to the completion of work on the rules for the implementation of the Paris Agreement; the strengthening of the Warsaw Mechanism on Losses and Damages while insisting on the creation of a special funding window for losses and damages linked to climate change and the simplification of procedures for accessing the Green Climate Fund.
Let us recall that this COP 25 hoped that the delegates would complete the negotiations on some key questions for the implementation of the Paris Agreement, particularly the guidelines for article 6 (market and non-market mechanisms), the review of the Warsaw International Mechanism on Loss and Damage Associated with the Impacts of Climate Change (WIM) and Long-Term Financing.
Furthermore, Jouthe expressed his disappointment at the close of this event which brought together more than 25,000 delegates, faced with the meager results obtained after so many discussions and debates. "We must stop summarizing the fight against climate change with simple slogans as was the case for COP25 which wanted to be that of Action."
In spite of everything, Minister Jouthe reiterated the commitment of the Ministry of the Environment to respect the ambitions set out in the Planned Contribution Determined at the National level CPDN of Haiti and intends to resume his pilgrim stick in order to continue to attract the attention of key players in the country to the main challenges linked to climate change.
