The CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness is set to join the virtual 14th European Development Days (EDD), to be held on 15-16 June 2021 via eudevdays.eu.
The global civil society platform will be hosting a Global Village Stand titled Advancing Effective Climate Finance Architecture: Engagements and grassroots practices for democratic ownership, coherence, predictability and transparency based on principles of climate justice, human rights, and ecological balance.
The concept draws from the pledges made by civil society, donors, developing countries, and international organisations ten years ago at the Fourth High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan, South Korea in 2011, to work together to promote coherence and collaboration in climate finance.
CPDE argues that the global climate finance architecture remains challenged, citing lack of ownership, transparency and predictability and incoherence with internationally agreed development goals as sticky issues during negotiations and international meetings.
Civil society organisations (CSOs), according to CPDE, continue to assert principles of effective development cooperation in climate finance. It notes the concerted effort by CSOs to address these outstanding issues by pushing to mobilise new and additional official development assistance (ODA) for climate finance, not only for mitigation but more importantly for adaptation, loss and damage, and just transition in developing countries.
Moreover, CSOs engage international development actors to democratise governance of climate finance by calling for proportional representation of stakeholders and by applying human rights principles. At the same time, they support the initiatives of indigenous peoples, peasant organisations, and other grassroots formations to build climate resilience and adaptability.
