CLIMATE TALKS BREAKTHROUGH #KATOWICERULEBOOK

Success of UN COP24 in Katowice – we have a global climate agreement

Negotiators from 196 countries and the European Union worked for two weeks on the Katowice Climate Package, implementing the Paris Agreement.


More than a dozen intense meetings enabled negotiations to be successful on different topics regarding principles aimed at implementing the Paris Agreement, which was signed in 2015. For two weeks, a wide range of issues were discussed – some fundamental, others very detailed and technical – which gave birth to a complex and difficult document. Finance, transparency and adaptation are some of its aspects.


In Katowice, within the framework of COP24, many heads of state, government and almost 100 Ministers of the Environment and of Foreign Affairs from all over the world were present. Thanks to the consensus, which has been agreed on by the Parties because of their commitment, Katowice has become, after Kyoto and Paris, another milestone on the way towards a sustainable global climate policy. In the Katowice Rules, different parties adopted a path that will be followed by each of them when it comes to stepping up actions for climate protection 2020.

“I can say it aloud now – interests of all the parties have been taken into account in the Katowice Package in a sustainable and honest way”, said the COP24 President Michał Kurtyka. “More importantly, its impact on the world will be positive. We have taken a big step towards achieving the ambitions set in the Paris Agreement. Ambitious Climate Action.”


The Polish Presidency at COP24 also initiated three declarations, which have been broadly supported by the Parties. On the first day at COP24 President Andrzej Duda made a statement about the just transformation based on solidarity. Its adoption was the most important point of the Summit of Heads of States and Governments. The next day, a common initiative of Poland and the UK Katowice Partnership for Electromobility, presented in the presence of the UN Secretary General António Guterres, was presented by Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and the COP24 President Michał Kurtyka. In the second half of the conference the “Forests for Climate” declaration was announced.

Greta Rebellion Alarm 30 NOV – #FridaysforFuture

We must change ourselves.

Why should I study for a future that is not available?

To all of you out there: it’s time for civil disobedience. It’s time to rebel.

What you do now, we, the children, cannot change when we grow older.

 

Many say Sweden is a minor nation and that what we do does not matter. But if some school students can make world news just because we skipped school for a few days – imagine what we can accomplish if we all work in Togethernessship.
Every person counts. Just like any greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). Each SINGLE GHG kilo. Everything counts in large amounts. So, please treat the climate crisis as the emergency crisis it is and give us a
future.
– Our lives was in your hands.

The adults have failed us. And since most of them, including the press and the politicians, keep ignoring the situation, we must take action into our own hands.

 

The Earth is not dying, it’s being killed. And the people killing it have names and addresses.

We are the Government and we are here to help.

Maybe if the people in power listened to the climate scientists and took action to stop dangerous climate change then we wouldn’t have to resort to all become climate activists.

What is the point in expecting kids to study science and logic in school and go onto STEM based professions when our government won’t even listen to and act on the advice of the World’s top scientists?

We’re choosing to no longer be powerless. We will be striking with thousands of other students, to show we will not stand for our government’s inaction on climate change – Well be voting soon.

Im striking for school consider it a climate lesson.

We need to keep fossil fuels in the ground if we are to have any hope of a safe climate.

Young people will face the consequences of climate change long after the current political leaders are gone. They aren’t going to be around when climate change hits us the most so we need to be doing something now.
This is just the beginning.

 

Some said I should be in school. But why should any young person be made to study for a future when no one is doing enough to save that future? What is the point of learning when the most important facts given by the finest scientists are ignored by our politicians?

This is not a warning it’s an Alarm of the future of humanity.

Our leaders are behaving like children, turning parliaments into kindergarten schoolyards, we will have to take the responsibility they should have taken long ago,” she said. “We have to understand what the older generation has dealt to us, what mess they have created that we have to clean up and live with. We have to make our voices heard.

 

Wise statements by Greta Thunberg, you cannot argue against

Every local government need to develop an Urban Conservation Emergency Evacuation Plan (#UCEEP)

Every local government needs to develop an Urban Conservation Emergency Evacuation Plan (#UCEEP) (.pdf-document for download here) (.pdf-Executive Summary for download here)

 

Dealing with a climate crisis has now gone planetary — Cities’ planners and policymakers must protect vulnerable citizens by having an Urban Conservation Emergency Evacuation Plan policy in place, for the outcome of the New Urban Agenda and monitored by the Sendai Framework, that is proven realistic in an actual emergency. Environment havoc in the footsteps of climate change require, for the first time, to mainstream local conservation against disasters in all relief planning…

 

Executive Summary

Paper on Urban Conservation Emergency Evacuation Plan (UCEEP 2.0)

 

The UCEEP (Safe #CitiinCiti) innovative project/initiative was realised with clarity that safeguarding, protection and shelter has overall the highest command in any emergency in relation to mass activities -> Climate Action response risk assessing urban resilience will by far have the most efficient adaptation/mitigation impact. Poor urban planning, lack of ecosystem restoration and short medium/long-term environment decisions are already affecting the human health globally.

 

‘A system of local conservation emergency evacuation urban craters, capturing rainwater will give a new town/city protection and balance megacities, second cities and their urban sprawl/spawn, it might even be a supportive link between the city and it’s green belt definition. Cooling carbon sinks against urban heat waves and balancing micro climates with positive green outcome can generate many health and safety benefits at the same time offer shelter and protection to its area districts.’

Regional offices, local governments, planners and policy makers must protect vulnerable citizens by having an ”Urban Conservation Emergency Evacuation Plan” policy in place, proven to be realistic in an actual emergency, when implementing our global frameworks. E.g. unavoidable human-made hazards which are related to our changing climate (climate-induced disaster). How can we ensure necessary mitigation/adaptation planning documentation is up-to-date? Key words Decarbonisation – Biodiversity – Greenfield land and Natural space Water resources and Air quality – Climate change – Public space Social inclusion and Integration – Restoration.

 

The creation UCEEP paper become clear when the 2015/16 when five globally binding agreements came in place changing the world agenda delivering to the Agenda 2030, the Global Goals; these are;

  • The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) – June 2015
  • The Addis Ababa Action Agenda (AAAA) of the agreement Financing for Development. A global framework for financing development – July 2015
  • The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – September 2015
  • The Paris climate agreement (PA) is an agreement within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) – Dec. 2015
  • The New Urban Agenda (NUA), which will serve as a guideline for sustainable urban development for the next eighteen years – October 2016 http://nua.unhabitat.org/list1.htm#

 

The aim of a second draft UCEEP 2.0 paper is to equip member states with a state-of-art emergency solution, CO2lution if you so like.

 

An URBAN CONSERVATION EMERGENCY EVACUATION PLAN (UCEEP) is a physical cradle for the Global Goals. First and foremost an UCEEP provides protection and shelter to urban residents, it’s assets and urban environment. Secondary on medium-term building on the Sustainable Development Goals, investing in the UCEEP a scalable multi-function CO2lution will generate long-term health and well-being to the people and the planet.

 

Considering general emergency policies of the national government a second draft UCEEP to compliment the 2030 agenda, for urban settlement equipped with detailed evacuation plans for facilitating and handling climate crisis as seen daily in every continent on the planet. On the work of Climate Ambition with Governments and Stakeholders; Non-state actor’s, Multi-actor’s governance and Multi-stakeholders’ platforms; What role can regional partners play to bridge the national implementation agenda with the global guiding principles and frameworks? How can nations synergise and harness efforts to protect and offer urban preparedness to urban hazardous-zones and at what level?

 

United Nations expressed in report the urgency of implementation of the SDGs together with the New Urban Agenda. To embed an Urban Conservation Emergency Evacuation Plan (UCEEP) policy in place on the international agenda is a transformative change in urban risk-behaviour.
– First, give evidence that disaster risk assessment in every action will support mitigation efforts and further generate understanding and positive impact of carbon and methane reductions to help increase the ambition of states Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) by 2020. UCEEP to protect, restore and promote sustainable use of urban ecosystems?

 

Climate Disaster Action CO2lutions to Sustainable Cities and Communities in partnership “Making Cities Resilient” to achieve the goals. Well-designed urban growth, in e.g. urban regeneration and disaster risk management adaption with Urban Conservation Emergency Evacuation Planning is a way forward; We need an operative Climate Action Agenda Foster implementation – Citizens integration in practice Hi policy level endorsement Monitoring minimal criteria Identify capacity overlaps for implementation – pressure points Green force new sectors Attention to biology and ecology knowledge / Millennials Eco-implementors? Great big product moving in on direction Data visibility Learning from taking stock ~ “Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss”.

 

An UCCEP will offer each one protection in urban safe-zones while empowering people and offer to everyone a place where one genuine feel inclusiveness and equality (as part of something bigger). Any successful  realistic UCEEP will require regular effectiveness drills. Can you imagine a physical place doing good for humanity and at the same time healing the urban/natural environment… ?

 

The main purpose with the second draft UCEEP paper is to fast-track Agenda 2030, at the same time slow carbon emissions and protect urban vulnerable people from disaster, support business contingency with the UCEEP concept “Safe CitiinCiti” all in one transferable Multipurpose Conservation CO2lution.

 

The UCEEP concept is set for development and is looking for “Declaration of interest” from new state/non-state actors to form a universal multi-partnership for Disaster “Safe CitiinCiti” CO2lutions.

 

The UCEEP paper has as a concept been recognised by several global organisation, leaders, scientists, politicians, from the global climate change action (CCA) agenda, the disaster preparedness community (disaster risk reduction (DRR)), SDG stakeholders, World Urban Forum etc. 2019 is momentum for change, support creation for a Global UCEEP Standard. Looking at CO2lutions globally, you might save $$$ in any other cases, the point really is that investing… Investing in resilience always pays. Mobilise finance for skills enhancement, technology transfer and demonstrations to put in place the tools needed for early warning systems, preparedness, risk-informed development planning and better use of natural resources for sustainable energy practices.

The Gauteng Declaration – #Inclusive #Cities

THE GAUTENG DECLARATION

 

DECLARE THAT:
We share the willingness to work towards metropolises for and by their citizens, where participatory and effective metropolitan governance fosters economic development, sustainability, social cohesion and justice, gender equality and good quality of life;

We are committed to fostering links and exchanges between political leaders, policy makers and practitioners worldwide; to advocating for metropolitan interests and improving the performance of metropolises in addressing local and global challenges;

We are dedicated to the transformation of our institutions and the strengthening of governance systems to respond to the aspirations of a rapidly urbanising population; addressing urban sustainability challenges related to housing, infrastructure, basic services, climate change, food security and migrations; and ending violations of human rights;

We recognize that metropolitan areas are expanding due to the galvanising power of proximity, agglomeration and innovation; that targeted transformation of cities and city regions, which are the cradle of our heritage, is critical to the vision of a brighter and more inclusive future; and that urbanisation is already bearing fruits by lowering overall poverty, raising household incomes, and creating new opportunities;

We acknowledge the impact of metropolitan areas on their surrounding territories, hinterland, peripheral cities and intermediary cities; and that metropolitan priorities and policies need to consider these effects on countries as a whole;

We celebrate that the Forum of African Metropolises is convened as an important mechanism to develop knowledge and know-how among peers in a rapidly urbanising continent;

We understand that the objectives set forth by the international community to meet global challenges cannot be fulfilled without the involvement and commitment of metropolises and all local governments.

WE CALL FOR:

More means to effectively localise the Sustainable Development Goals, the New Urban Agenda and Paris Agreement on Climate Change; and to address the environmental, economic, social and governance dimensions of exclusion in metropolitan areas;

Partners around the world to join us in advocating for metropolitan interests, as we address local and global challenges, thus enhancing our collaborations towards the ideal of inclusive metropolises for and by their citizens;

A seat at the global table, recognizing the role that metropolitan areas must play in the development of policies at national, regional and international level;

Support in research and innovation on metropolitan governance and needs;

Enhanced mechanisms to allow exchange between metropolitan areas, and specific programmes that can support renewal and policy innovation at all levels;

International acknowledgment of the existing mechanisms that promote dialogue between the international community and subnational governments of all sizes, the Global Taskforce of Local and Regional Governments.

WE REAFFIRM OUR DETERMINATION TO:

Foster inclusive cities expand opportunities through inclusive settlements and mobility options, support asset-building for sustainable livelihoods, and tackle land-based exclusion;

Defy the trappings of social exclusion which occur in the form of inequality, discrimination, racism, patriarchy, sexism, hetero-sexism and intolerance;

Exercise leadership on the world stage to solve the local and global issues that affect the world population, as set forth in the Montréal Declaration proclaimed at the XII Metropolis World Congress held last year;

Harness the potential of technology to reduce costs and level the playing field for inclusive development, and foster just, inclusive, adaptive, responsive, transparent and accountable governments;

Work together with national and international institutions, and especially with peers from the Global Taskforce of Local and Regional Governments, in advocacy mechanisms, such as the Urban 20 initiative, towards achieving the shared ambitious objectives of the global agenda, while enhancing the voice of metropolitan communities worldwide;

Call upon more partners around the world to join us advocating for diverse metropolitan perspectives, in our commitment to the ideal of inclusive metropolises for and by their citizens.

More so the Metropolis family will continue to draw inspiration from the life convictions of our global icon, Nelson Mandela.

The draft National Planning Policy Framework #NPPF #NPPF2018

    If there was a #SDG18 it might well coalesce around the concept of #ResilienceforAll

     

    As it is, the concept of resilience is fundamental to achieving all of the SDGs, seeking as they do to strengthen people’s ability to survive, cope and thrive on this planet.

     

    Over the last couple of months, I have met and heard from politicians and civil society representatives from over 100 countries meeting in regional platforms for disaster risk reduction in the Americas, Europe and Asia.

     

    All take the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 as their manifesto, providing guidance and a gateway towards coping with a world where inclusion is under threat, disaster displacement is an everyday occurrence, urbanization is proceeding at breakneck speed and the earth’s resources are being used up at an alarming rate.

     

    Building ‘resilience for all’ seems to be the underlying theme, be it for the most vulnerable people, the displaced, or for those affected by rapid urbanization which ignores the principles of good land use and safe building codes.

     

    We have had wide-ranging discussions on subjects as diverse as resilient infrastructure, the role of eco-systems, the protection of livestock, accessibility to multi-hazard early warning systems, public-private cooperation and working with informal settlements.

     

    A key issue that surfaces time and again is concern over disaster displacement. This is now a chronic issue which needs to be addressed if we are to make progress on making cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable as SDG 11 calls for.

     

    Just in the last week, my own country Japan has had to cope with the most extensive disaster event since the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami in 2011. The floods and landslides have caused over 200 deaths or missing, great disruption to normal life and highlighted once more how even the best disaster-prepared countries in the world can be blind-sided by extreme weather events fueled by climate change.

     

    My heart it torn to see the tragic images that are emerging from Japan, and my thoughts are with those who have lost their loved ones and are now living under extremely difficult conditions.

     

    Millions of people in Japan were ordered to vacate their homes earlier this month and forced displacement because of disaster events, usually a flood or a storm, is now a chronic problem in many parts of the world.

     

    Consistently over the last ten years, more people have been displaced by natural hazards than by conflict. According to the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre, last year conflict and disasters displaced 30.6 million people within their own countries and this included 18.8 million people displaced by disasters in 135 countries.

     

    We note a number of things about how efforts to build societies resilient to disasters are falling short.

     

    First, it is the poor who are disproportionately affected by these events, often they are people forced to live on flood plains or in marginal areas which lack resilient infrastructure, access to water and sanitation, and other basic services.

     

    Second, we are becoming too reliant on evacuation as a solution to saving lives and minimizing the injuries and ill-health which can accompany an extreme weather event or an earthquake when what is required is that we become better at managing the risks which drive these events before disaster strikes.

     

    Third, it is time to act on the realization that we are living with unsustainably high levels of risk given what we know about the likely increase in intensity and frequency of extreme weather events linked to climate change, and population growth in hazard exposed areas.

     

    These are just some of the reasons why I have been emphasizing two issues in particular in my speaking engagements at these recent regional meetings: the need for inclusion, and the importance of local strategies for disaster risk reduction wherever there is a human settlement.

     

    If we do not include all sections of society in our planning for prevention and risk management, then we will see some groups suffer disproportionate loss of life not because they have been deliberately discriminated against but because their voices have not been heard and their needs have been overlooked.

     

    We are getting better at disseminating early warnings, organizing evacuations and providing emergency aid and shelter as part of efforts to build urban resilience but we need to make a much greater effort to prevent displacement and find long-term solutions which reduce the risk of it happening.

     

    Vital to this effort is ensuring an increase in the number of countries with national and local strategies for disaster risk reduction by 2020, a key target in the global plan for reducing disaster losses, the Sendai Framework.

     

    Disaster risk is best managed at the local level where the results will quickly show. One outward sign that this is increasingly entering the mainstream is the growing number of municipalities who are opting to join UNISDR’s 4,000-strong Making Cities Resilient Campaign.

     

    We need more countries to follow the examples of Mongolia and Bangladesh which have signed up all their cities and towns to the campaign.

     

    Resilience for all does not come without effort. The future is unfolding before our very eyes; we cannot afford a half-hearted response.

    Antarctica worlds first #haemorrhagingdisaster > SHOCK. Everything is dying…

    After a disastrous shock, what can we learn from isolated groups in historic disperse breakout patterns?

    Vegetarian diet a cure –  Scurvy

    Scurvy has followed in the wake of human-made disasters and war, where starvation, famine and rationing threatened both civilians and soldiers.
    It has appeared during the crusades and during poorly equipped travel expeditions. The best known, however, are the stories of all the seamen who became ill and died when long cruises between the continents became common centuries later. At that time, many thought that scurvy was due to poisoning.

     

    The initial stages of scurvy begin with fatigue, irritability, impaired workload and intellectual ability. Experiments made in England in the 1940’s have shown that after 17 weeks of vitamin C low-fat diet, symptoms begin to seriously occur with the destruction and congestion of the hair follicles, the skin forms small wounds that do not want to heal, blood vessels break, the gums begin to swell and bleed, one gets nasal blood, bowel ducts, internal organs and joints begin to bleed. Additionally, you get pain in your muscles and joints. Symptoms may vary depending on where the bleeding occurs. Death can come suddenly at scabbard, for example, bleeding from the heart muscle.

    Catastrophic numbers bleed to death – Pandemic

    A pandemic is a disease that rapidly and surprisingly spreads across large parts of the globe, and researchers assume that the next will be a flu. The virus is particularly dangerous when a variant from animals, such as birds or pigs, infects humans.

     

    If a bird and a human influenza attack the same cell, their DNA is copied simultaneously, thus combined into a new virus that exploits the most dangerous properties of both fluids.

     

    If a killer virus breaks out near you, make sure you cough and sneeze in a disposable tissue or in your sleeve – not in your hand. You should wash your hands frequently with warm water and soap or alcohol, and do not share personal belongings such as towels, sheets and toothbrushes.

     

    Clean surfaces like door handles, tables, toys, keyboards and toilets frequently. Avoid contact with infected people or stay away from others if you become ill.

    Trauma – Earthquakes

    Trauma is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in a number of different disastrous scenarios but it is the predominant mechanism of injury following earthquakes and constitutes the majority of earthquake‐related hospital admissions in the first 24h. The very young and the very old have the highest risk of mortality from an earthquake. Chest trauma is present in around 10% of earthquake casualties who present to hospital and management may be complicated by delays of several hours or even days in extricating some of those trapped under the rubble.Chest injury is often accompanied by injuries to other organ systems and multiple injuries are associated with increased mortality.

     

    Excluding superficial abrasions to the chest, the spectrum of injuries seen in those with chest trauma following earthquakes includes: rib fracture (17–50%), which may be complicated by flail chest, pneumothorax (6–52%), haemothorax/haemopneumothorax (11–19%), subcutaneous emphysema (10%), pulmonary contusion; rupture of cardiovascular system and diaphragmatic rupture. In addition, pulmonary embolism and pneumonia may complicate chest trauma, and ARDS and renal failure can develop in those with severe polytrauma or crush injuries.

     

    Management of the trauma patient should follow in accordance with the advanced trauma life support (ATLS) guidelines and is beyond the scope of this review. In addition to immediate airway management and cardiovascular support, tube thoracostomy is one of the most important thoracic interventions in the acute setting. Tube thoracostomy was the second most common procedure (behind fasciotomy) performed in one hospital following the 1999 earthquake in Turkey, occurring in 34/263 (13%) of patients.

    How will we respond to fast approaching haemorrhaging disasters?

    It is not rocket science to recognise that melting from all white, sea- and land ices and glaciers will cause unprecedented need for global disaster risk resilience (#SDG18). Global warming year 2070, after this tipping point will it ever snow on Earth again?

     

     

    ‘Utterly Terrifying Haemorrhaging Feedback Loops’ – What’s next, when the oceans turns acidic how will this affect ecosystem’s oxygen cycles? Ecological apocalypse, what new mono-cultures will spread in vegetated habitats? Will regions loose control to prevent invasive spices from taking over? Will only underground life thrive in the new natural environment?

     

    What will the damaging effect be with the extinction of all winter mammals and fish dependent of cold temperatures? What human consequences will occur as a result of biggest planetary biomass mass death event in modern time?

     

    We must predict and calculate unpredictable threats attacking the humanity via land, sea, air and geospace. Super-powered global practises are needed to slow down this dyer warming process caused by humans everlasting desire to grow more and stronger prosperity. Could the answer lay right within our collective communities state of commodity dependence?, to put a halt on all new development for the next fifty years? Would you adapt!? The increasing risks of climate disaster are haemorrhaging, so maybe…

     

    Can advances in artificial intelligence rise be a prominent driver in to help tackle disastrous temperature rise?

     

    In the XXIst century you can no longer work isolated in your corner. Coalitions rule!
