COP 27 | FUND FOR "CLIMATE JUSTICE"

After years of resistance from rich governments, nations for the first time agreed to set up a fund to provide payouts to developing countries that suffer "loss and damage" from climate-driven storms, floods, droughts and wildfires.

“This outcome moves us forward,” said Simon Stiell, UN Climate Change Executive Secretary. “We have determined a way forward on a decades-long conversation on funding for loss and damage – deliberating over how we address the impacts on communities whose lives and livelihoods have been ruined by the very worst impacts of climate change.”

"This COP has taken an important step towards justice. I welcome the decision to establish a loss and damage fund and to operationalize it in the coming period. Clearly this will not be enough, but it is a much-needed political signal to rebuild broken trust. The voices of those on the frontlines of the climate crisis must be heard…Together, let’s not relent in the fight for climate justice and climate ambition." — ANTÓNIO GUTERRES

Met the most amount of female leaders, are who gave me an amazing perspective what it is to be a strong, independent and successful woman. Met Arabic women leaders who have made it bing in the Arab world. They are not only clothed with dignity, but also clothed with character and integrity.

SDG 7: Affordable And Clean Energy

e1f3755541888e6ca78a1d27197686.jpg

The ISA was conceived as a joint effort by India and France to mobilize efforts against climate change through deployment of solar energy solutions. It was conceptualized on the sidelines of the 21st Conference of Parties (COP21) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) held in Paris in 2015. With the amendment of its Framework Agreement in 2020, all member states of the United Nations are now eligible to join the ISA. At present, 110 countries are signatories to the ISA Framework Agreement, of which 90 countries have submitted the necessary instruments of ratification to become full members of the ISA.
 

The ISA is guided by its ‘Towards 1000’ strategy which aims to mobilise USD 1,000 billion of investments in solar energy solutions by 2030, while delivering energy access to 1,000 million people using clean energy solutions and resulting in installation of 1,000 GW of solar energy capacity. This would help mitigate global solar emissions to the tune of 1,000 million tonnes of CO2 every year. For meeting these goals, the ISA takes a programmatic approach. Currently, the ISA has 9 comprehensive programmes, each focusing on a distinct application that could help scale deployment of solar energy solutions. Activities under the programmes focuses on 4 priority areas – Analytics & Advocacy, Capacity Building, Programmatic Support, and readiness and enabling activities, that help create a favourable environment for solar energy investments to take root in the country.

The ISA is guided by its ‘Towards 1000’ strategy which aims to mobilise USD 1,000 billion of investments in solar energy solutions by 2030.

ISA is a Treaty based Inter-governmental organisation, with 120 nations as treaty members.

Under ISA's Program on Scaling Solar for Agricultural Use, #ISA aggregated demand of 2,72,579 #SolarWaterPumps from 22 countries. The #ISA is currently working with United Nations Development Programme - UNDP, International Water Management Institute (IWMI) @GGI & Asian Development Bank under different projects to implement #SolarWaterPumps in member countries.
 

The launch of the International Solar Alliance (ISA) was announced by H.E. Mr. Narendra Modi, the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India and H.E. Mr. Francois Hollande, former Hon’ble President of France on 30th November 2015, at the 21st session of United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP-21) in Paris, France. Former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon attended the launch. The ISA is guided by its ‘Towards 1000’ strategy which aims to mobilise USD 1,000 billion of investments in solar energy solutions by 2030, while delivering energy access to 1,000 million people using clean energy solutions and resulting in installation of 1,000 GW of solar energy capacity.

UN commissioner for Human Rights, Miloon Kothari denounced for antisemitic remarks

UN commissioner for Human Rights, Miloon Kothari denounced for antisemitic remarks

Psalms 121:4 “Indeed, He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.”

 

The Executive Director of UNADAP, Dr. Dominic F Dixon, at the UN Headquarters in New York, vehemently and categorically condemned the statements made by Mr. Miloon Kothari, member of the UNHRC commission of inquiry against Israel, and comments that were then defended by his fellow commissioners, Navi Pillay and Chris Sidoti. 

Over fifteen counties, including Canada had condemned the statements made by Mr. Kothari.

When UN commissioner Miloon Kothari ranted about the ”the Jewish lobby,” he was called out for antisemitism by Austria, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, US.
Special envoy of the United States Deborah Lipstadt, and Canada’s Special Envoy, Professor Irwin Cotler, have condemned Kothari for antisemitism.

President of the UN Human Rights Council, Federico Villegas also condemned the statements made by Kothari.

The UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres issued the following statement: “The Secretary-General has always been extremely clear in saying that there is no room for antisemitism in the work of the UN. Second, Israel is unquestionably a Member State of the United Nations.”

Listen to the Podcast interview of Kothari, here: https://unwatch.org/un-commissioner-miloon-kothari.../

According to UN Watch Executive Director, Hillel Neuer, “This commission is perhaps one of the most anti-Israel bodies ever created in the history of the United Nations. It has 18 full-time staff who are tasked with collecting evidence to be used in legal tribunals to prosecute Israelis. There is no question that their goal is to declare Israel an apartheid state. That’s why they chose Navi Pillay as the chair. She’s from South Africa. Two years ago she signed a petition to governments lobbying them to “Sanction Apartheid Israel!””

Dixon has called for the sacking of Mr. Kothari and banning him from ever having a platform at the United Nations. In the past, at the UN Office at Geneva, Dixon had condemned the statements made against India by the UNHRC Commissioner, Michelle Bachelet, who had attempted to undermine the sovereignty of India and interfered with internal matters. Dixon further stated, “There is a lobby and an agenda by the office of the UNHRC, to undermine democracies at the behest of anti-Semitic states with deep pockets. The UN has become a lobbyist organization and one of the most status quo and redundant organizations and the costliest to run. The UN has not been able to stop wars as its mandate, but it creates international tensions, and then tries to solve it. Special Consultative Status & Observer organisations as UNADAP, MORE, UN Watch, etc. have been the conscience of the UN, but it’s a lofty pursuit.”

UNADAP is grateful to the U.S. Secretary of State, Antony Blinken and the U.S. diplomatic department for the extended support, as Dixon registered his protest at the Halls of the UN Security Council, UN General Assembly & and th UN Economic & Social Council.

India and Israel Relations:
Israel and India established full diplomatic relations on January 29, 1992. However, even before that, Israel had a Consulate in Mumbai, operating since 1953. Following the establishment of diplomatic relations an Embassy opened in New Delhi, and the Consulate in Mumbai became Consulate-General. In addition, an Honorary Consulate operates in Kolkata. 

During the years since the establishment of diplomatic relations, much progress has been made on the bilateral level. India is increasingly becoming central to Israel’s policy, politically, commercially, in science and culture. Israel is appreciative of the fact that Jews in India were never persecuted.

ABRAHAM ACCORDS

The Abraham Accords are a series of treaties normalizing diplomatic relations between Israel, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco, facilitated by the U.S. Administration[1] between August and December, 2020. In the span of five short months, these four Arab states joined Egypt and Jordan in making peace with Israel. The agreements were called “The Abraham Accords” in honor of Abraham - the patriarch of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

PETITION | UN WATCH

Terminate the U.N.'s Anti-Israel Commission of Inquiry

The U.N.’s new Commission of Inquiry against Israel, initiated by Pakistan and the PLO, is a travesty of justice. Despite U.N. rules requiring impartiality, each of three commissioners has a record of extreme anti-Israel positions. One of them was even condemned worldwide for making antisemitic remarks. It’s time to end the U.N.’s perpetual inquisition against the Jewish state.
