Haiti - COP28 : Minister Cadet calls for urgent and concrete actions
Sunday December 9, 2023, as part of the 28th session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (COP28) James Cadet, the Minister of the Environment of Haiti, during its intervention, welcomed the operationalization of the Loss and Damage Fund as well as the first promises for its capitalization.

Cadet explained that least developed countries and small island developing states like Haiti particularly need this Fund in order to strengthen the capacity of their vulnerable populations and unfairly exposed to the effects of climate change.

He regretted that despite the commitment of countries to limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius and to do everything possible to limit it to 1.5 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels, the assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Climate Change (IPCC) shows that we are not on the right track to avoid exceeding this threshold. Stressing "Any additional delay during this critical decade will result in catastrophic scenarios for small island states like Haiti [...]"

It was also an opportunity for Minister Cadet to clarify "The question of climate security is an extremely worrying problem which complicates our fragility and creates additional difficulties for Haitian society." According to Cadet, the country is making great efforts to meet its mitigation and adaptation commitments. However, he stressed that transforming mitigation and adaptation ambitions into concrete country-wide actions requires financial, human and technological resources that exceed the country's capabilities.

Finally, the Minister recalled that the Republic of Haiti hopes that this COP28 marks a new turning point and breathes new impetus into the global fight against climate change concluding “The 'status quo,' including the different forms of exclusion, cannot be an option, otherwise and to say the least, future generations will not forgive us for having done little to curb the phenomenon while the solutions were within our reach."
