MANILA, Philippines – NANGAKO ang gobyerno ng Pilipinas na susuportahan ang gagawing pagho-host ng Egypt para muling pasiglahin ang international consensus sa climate crisis sa “27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change” na magbubukassa Sharm el-Sheikh City, araw ng Linggo.

Pinangunahan ni Environment Secretary Maria Antonia Yulo-Loyzaga ang Philippine delegation sa conference na nagsimula na ngayong araw Nobyembre 6 hanggang 18.

Sinabi ni Loyzaga na ipagpapatuloy ng Pilipinas ang manawagan sa mga developed countries na gumawa ng hakbang para i-deliver nang walang pagkaantala ang kanilang commitments sa climate finance, technology transfer and capacity building.”

Inaasahan naman ng Pilipinas na ang komperensiya ay magtatakda ng stage para sa “transparent, accessible, predictable and efficient climate finance.”

“The Philippine delegation will assert the country’s call for bolder climate action and demand the delivery of what is due for the developing countries, which hardly produce any greenhouse gas emissions, yet they suffer the most and continue to bear the brunt of the adverse impacts of climate change,” ayon kay Loyzaga.

Binigyang diin nito ang pinaigting na “intensity at frequency” ng climate at weather-related hazards, na nakita sa matinding pananalasa ng bagyong Paeng sa nakalipas na linggo.

“Against this backdrop and guided by the current administration’s policies and priorities on climate change, the Philippine delegation stands ready to work with other nations and stakeholders and support Egypt’s efforts in galvanizing and revitalizing international consensus and political will in addressing the most urgent scourge that threatens the very existence of humanity as we know it,” anito.

Ani Loyzaga, nais ng bansa na makapag-ambag sa workstreams, at sundin ang Article 6 ng “Paris Agreement, adaptation, climate finance, and loss and damage.”

“The Philippines will not only safeguard its positions but also continue what it started,” aniya pa rin.

Pumayag Nlnaman aniya ang Pilipinas sa operationalization at funding ng Santiago Network on Loss and Damage, na makapagbigay sa developing countries ng technical assistance.

“The Philippine delegation, in the following days, will continue to assert and safeguard the country’s interest in climate change negotiation, ensuring that we receive the appropriate support and assistance as a country vulnerable to climate change,”ayon kaya Loyzaga.

“Egypt, as COP27 president, aims at making the conference an “implementation COP” by urging action across prior agreements through all areas of climate change,” ayon sa ulat.

Ang mga kinatawan at negotiators mula sa Mababang Kapulungan ng Kongreso, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Climate Change Commission, Department of Finance, Department of Foreign Affairs, Department of Agriculture and Department of Energy, at maging advisers mula scientific at civil society organizations, ay magsasama-sama sa Philippine delegation to Egypt.

“COP27 is the moment where global leaders can regain momentum on climate change, make the necessary pivot from negotiations to implementation, and get moving on the massive transformation that must take place throughout all sectors of society to address the climate emergency,” Simon Stiell, executive secretary of UN Climate Change,” ayon sa kalatas.
