ecbi Reports

A key strength of the ecbi has been the identification of potential roadblocks in the global climate negotiations, and efforts (often successful) to engage negotiators from across the spectrum to identify innovative ways to break the impasse. In 2018-2019, as the global negotiations on the Paris rulebook approached the endgame, we identified two such critical areas: common timeframes and Article 6 market mechanisms. These two issues, along with the continuing concerns regarding the adequacy and predictability of climate finance, formed the focus of our work during this year.

This Independant Evaluation of Phase IV of ecbi finds that the ecbi is currently meeting and often surpassing its agreed outcomes, and is also producing unplanned benefits, including networking for participants, informal support to unblock negotiations challenges, and sharing of information with participants’ colleagues. The ecbi also meets a unique need in the negotiations process.

The three ecbi programmes had a particularly busy period this past year, producing nine seminars, four training programmes, eight policy briefs and notes; three pocket guides; and numerous meeting reports. Bursaries were provided to two junior negotiators, and technical support to senior negotiators from vulnerable countries.

The 2011/12 ecbi Annual Report highlights our efforts over the past year to strengthen capacity and trust between North-South, and South-South positions in the emerging climate change regime. This is achieved through three programme areas: the trust-building Fellowship Programme with an informal (high-level) exchange of views and ideas; the Workshop Programme to enhance negotiating skills and capacity-building; and the Policy Analysis Programme to provide the policy analyses necessary for successful negotiations. Over the past 12 months, ecbi has hosted 11 workshops, seminars, ad hoc meetings worldwide with 276 participants from developing and developed countries. The feedback has been strong and progress demonstrated, particularly with regard of climate finance. We look forward to the year ahead and the establishment of two new ecbi Circles: one on the Durban Platform and a second communications platform for the LDC Group.
