Argentina called for co-24 equity and justice in funds for developing countries

Climate action is one of the Sustainable Development Objectives of Agenda 2030

All environment
The Secretary of Environment, Sergio Bergman, asked today at COP24 "decentralization, direct access and the possibility that developing countries have equity and justice in access to funds" to confront climate change, which he considered a "human rights policy". Bergman spoke this afternoon at the Third High-Level Ministerial Dialogue on Climate Finance, during the global convention that began last week and will culminate this Friday in Katowice, Poland, the environmental portfolio reported in a statement. "Climate action is one of the Sustainable Development Objectives of Agenda 2030 and we find ourselves debating about money when in the background the discussion is about values", and stated that "this policy is about human rights". The official considered that "it is time that those who have polluted the most, not only with generosity but with responsibility, put the money" and that this impulse is transmitted "to the market and to the economy, so as not to remain only in good intentions". The private sector "is committed to ensuring that their finances are linked to climate sustainability," because "it must be good business for them to be sustainable," said the official at the UN Climate Change Summit (COP24). Argentina signed the Paris Agreement, stating: "We have signed it to comply with it and Paris is here today; we came to set the rules of the game and not to play with those rules. It is the time for action and definition. Finally, he declared: "The future is what we do today when we decide and that future can be sustainable. Complying with Paris today ensures a better tomorrow for everyone. In the morning Bergman participated in the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy - a global alliance of cities - where he shared Argentina's vision of integration between levels of government for climate strategy and national sustainable development, with a particular focus on financing. He also intervened in the event for the 10th anniversary of the program "Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation" (UN-REDD). Bergman's agenda included participation in other meetings parallel to the Summit and met with Robert McKee, president of the Steering Group of Foundations 20 (F20); with Ramiro Fernández, of the Avin Foundation; and with directors of General Electric.
