Enhancing Developing
Country Participation in
Climate Actions
Noeleen Heyzer
Executive Secretary, ESCAP
Side Event of Regional Commissions
12 December 2007, Bali
Asia & the Pacific
Urgent Challenge: To motivate proactive
developing country actions on climate change
Increasing share in climate change
Highest level of vulnerability to extreme
meteorological events
Growth without negative impact on
climate change: Home to 2/3 of the world’s
poor & 800 million people without access to
electricity
Create virtuous cycle: climate action
supporting energy security & economic
growth
 Shift from “Quantity” to “Quality” of Growth -- for
compatibility with climate action
 Internalize ecological cost of climate change into
energy & resource market prices
 Improve ecological efficiency of economic
performance in production & consumption (ESCAP
“Green Growth” approach)
 Turn climate crisis into an opportunity for energy
security & economic growth
Expand opportunities for voluntary
participation
Imposing quantitative targets on developing
countries: scientifically & politically
challenging
 Limit & reduce GHG emissions & engage market
dynamism in promoting climate actions
 Provide incentives for voluntary actions on
energy efficiency as climate actions
Expand opportunities for voluntary
participation
Imposing quantitative targets on
developing countries: scientifically
& politically challenging (contd.)
 Promote voluntary actions of sub-state
actors & non-state actors
 Strengthen financial mechanism to assist
climate actions & enhance private sector
role in financial flows
Reformed CDM: an incentive
mechanism
Compliance Scheme for Annex I
Reformed CDM: a full-scale market mechanism
 Generating developing country GHG emission reductions
without imposing targets
 Meeting the needs of non-Annex I countries (broad
spectrum)
 Providing incentives for non-Annex I participation in
climate action
 Contributing to net global GHG reduction by discounting
CER (Certified Emission Reductions)
Make global economic system
supportive of developing country efforts
 Take different approaches to different types of
technology to enhance technology transfer:
non-patented technology, publicly-owned or funded
technology, patented technology
 For publicly-owned or funded technology:
encourage developed country governments to
influence special licensing arrangements for
accelerating their dissemination
 Develop global trade, investment & IPR regimes
conducive to sustainable development in
developing countries
