Call for system change not climate change unites global movement
A Joint Statement, Copenhagen, Denmark, December 14, 2009
Copenhagen - 14 December 2009: We, members of Oilwatch Southeast Asiai and Indonesian Civil Society Forum for Climate Justice (CSF) declare our common position and demands on the current climate negotiation in COP 15 UNFCCC Copenhagen. We have witnessed the lack of leadership among industrial countries to significantly cut carbon emission let alone show their responsibility to support developing countries to tackle the impacts of climate change.
OilWatch Southeast Asia Statement to Call for ASEAN Governments Support
to Stop Oil and Gas Exploitation and Burmese Human Right Violation .
Realizing the ASEAN Energy Ministers Meeting in Burma which is being held in Mandalay in this week that ultimately would set out the ambitious directions for the future development in Burma, the OilWatch Southeast Asia has a great concern on the overall situation, economically, politically, socially and environmentally, considering the already over exploitation of the natural resources within the country.
Besides the meeting, it has marked the ASEAN Plus 6 which recognizes the official involvement of Australia, China, India, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand in Burma’s energy development. A number of papers relating to a range of energy issues in Global and regional level will be read out at the meeting.
Oil Watch SEA is a network of Southeast Asian environmental NGOs, with our missions to encourage sustainable use of energy resources under the sustainable development goal in all economic, environmental and social dimensions.
We call for and urging governments to keep fossil fuels, particularly, oil and gas underground, realizing the current and increasing threats of climate change and its significant evidenced impacts on ecological systems and all lives on earth.
