The imperative of cooperation: Steps towards an equitable response to the climate crisis

Guest content
16 November 2022

A new report provides a global equity analysis of how climate pledges stack up against the Paris Agreement goal of limiting warming to 1.5°C.

The 2022 Civil Society Equity Review, endorsed by over 200 civil society organisations and social movements, builds on previous years’ elaborations of what fair shares means in terms of both emission reductions and fossil fuel phase out, as well as adaptation and loss and damage.

In this report the Equity Review focuses on international cooperation, discussing and surveying key areas where international cooperation is both possible and necessary. In so doing, it presents opportunities for international cooperation that very explicitly apply to all countries and continents, though it also pauses to recognize how the particular situation in Africa – the host of COP27 – crystalizes some of the key inequities of the malfunctioning world order.

International cooperation will be key to enabling Africa to take a different course, through its own agency, towards people-centered, renewable energy societies that provide well-being for all.

This report outlines areas for international cooperation across four broad areas:

  • International Cooperation under the UNFCCC
  • International Cooperation through initiatives and multilateral platforms to address financing, renewable energy and fossil fuel phase-out
  • International Cooperation to manage energy price instability and a fair share phase out
  • International Cooperation Towards Changing the Rules and Architecture of Global Trade, Investment, Finance and Technology
