Laudato Si
Encyclical Letter Key Messages
The spiritual perspective is now part of the
discussion on the environment.
The poor are disproportionately affected by
climate change
Everything is connected—including the
Scientific research on the environment is to be
praised and used.
Widespread indifference and selfishness
worsen environmental problems.
Global dialogue and solidarity are needed.
“A new dialogue about
how we are shaping the
future of our planet. We
need a conversation
which includes everyone,
since the environmental
challenge we are
undergoing, and its
human roots, concern
and affect us all.”
Laudato Si, Para 14
“The human environment and the natural environment deteriorate
together; we cannot adequately combat environmental
degradation unless we attend to causes related to human and
social degradation. In fact, the deterioration of the environment
and of society affects the most vulnerable people on the planet.”
Laudato Si, Chap. 5, 163-200
“There is an urgent need to
substitute fossil fuels with
sustainable energy and this must
be available to everyone, including
the poorest. Richer countries must
help poorer countries to make the
shift away from fossil fuels or
leapfrog to cleaner sources of
energy through financing,
technology transfer and technical

Why Global Development Goals?
 Recognition of the international community that the
development of common goals could be useful for
pursuing focused and coherent action on sustainable
 To establish a common baseline and ambition for
development actions
 They represent a partnership between the developed
countries and developing countries to create an
environment –at the national and global levels alike–
which is conducive to development and the elimination of
Millennium Development Goals

APEC 2015 - Strategy for Strengthening
Economic Quality Growth
“We reiterate the call of Leaders through the 2010 APEC Growth
Strategy to develop more resource-efficient economies that will
enable us to prosper as low-carbon and resilient societies. We
continue to encourage new green industries and jobs.”
APEC States Committed to the 2030
Agenda of Sustainable Development
We welcome global efforts to lift economic growth, including
the existing work of the G20 and the United Nations, which
recently released the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable
We reaffirm APEC’s commitment in complementing the global
efforts in addressing the many challenges to sustainable
economic growth. The APEC Strategy for Strengthening
Quality Growth will bring more synergy between the APEC
Growth Strategy and the Sustainable Development Goals.
APEC 2015 – Leading Recognition on
Climate Change Impacts
We recognize that global economic growth continues to face
major challenges and note that regional growth remains
moderate and uneven. The Asia-Pacific region is faced with
such challenges as:
1) potential volatility in financial markets
2) increasing inequality
3) the gap in physical infrastructure
4) the need to foster innovation and increase access to skills
5) environmental concerns that include the impact of climate
6) food security and sustainable management of agriculture.

APEC 2015 – Policy Statement
to Environmental Impacts
c. Environmental Impact
Responses to climate change include measures to reduce greenhouse
gas emissions, to increase carbon sequestration, and to adapt to the
effects of climate change. Measures to reduce emissions will encourage
economies to move toward low carbon societies. Meanwhile, we
emphasize the need to adapt to climate change through disaster
preparedness and risk reduction. Adaptation entails investments in
science and technology, disaster resilient infrastructure, and eco-system
based adaptation, among other strategies. Both adaptation and mitigation
measures will be important for agriculture, fishery, forestry and
industrialization policies. We reiterate the call of Leaders through the 2010
APEC Growth Strategy to develop more resource-efficient economies that
will enable us to prosper as low-carbon and resilient societies. We
continue to encourage new green industries and jobs.
APEC 2015 – Business Events
Acknowledge Green Growth
“We are firmly committed to achieving a fair,
balanced, ambitious, durable and dynamic
agreement on climate change at the Paris
Climate Conference in December.
We therefor reaffirm our aspirational goals
to reduce aggregate energy intensity by
45 percent by 2035 and double renewable
energy in the regional energy mix by 2030
to achieve sustainable and resilient energy
development within the Asia-Pacific.”

The Road to Paris
Conference Of Parties 21
Since the first Conference Of Parties (COP) in Berlin in 1995,
the meetings have adopted significant agreements.
Unlike all previous meetings, the 2015 Paris Climate
Conference aimed to achieve a legally binding and universal
agreement on climate, the first in over 20 years of UN
The Road to Paris COP 21
A total of 36,276 participants, of whom 23,107 were
official government delegates, have attended the COP 21
In order to reach a new universal climate agreement, the
delegates of the 196 States Parties to the United Nations
Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) have
finally agreed on the treaty on 11 December 2015.
Key Messages to COP 21
Key Messages to COP 21
“The Paris Agreement allows
each delegation and group
of countries to go back home
with their heads held high.
Our collective effort is worth
more than the sum of our
individual effort. Our
responsibility to history is
Laurent Fabius, President of COP
21 and French Foreign Minister
Key Messages to COP 21
“While the post-industrial
period may well be
remembered as one of the
most irresponsible in history,
humanity at the dawn of the
twenty-first century will be
remembered for having
generously shouldered its
grave responsibilities”
The Holy Father Pope Francis
Key Messages to COP 21
“I believe this moment can
be a turning point for the
world. The Paris agreement
establishes the enduring
framework the world needs
to solve the climate crisis. It
creates the mechanism, the
architecture, for us to
continually tackle this
problem in an effective way.”
Barak Obama, President of the
United States of America
Key Messages to COP 21
“As President of a nation
increasingly affected by the
new normal, I believe the
real challenge begins with an
accounting of capacities:
How do we ask everyone to
contribute, and how do we
ask those with more to help
out those with less?”
Benigno S. Aquino III, President of
the Philippines
Philippines is 4th Most Disaster-Prone
Country in the World
The Philippines was fourth in
the world among countries
hit by the highest number of
disasters over the past 20
years, according to the
United Nations Office for
Disaster Risk Reduction
From 1995 to 2015, the
country has endured 274
natural calamities, affecting
130 billion people.
Outcome of COP 21
188 countries contributed national climate action plans to the new
agreement, which will dramatically slow the pace of global
greenhouse gas emissions. These plans will be revised every five
years, thereby steadily increasing the ambitions in the long-term.
The universal agreement’s main aim is to keep a global
temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius and to
drive efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5
degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
Countries will continue to engage in a process on mitigation
opportunities and will put added focus on adaptation opportunities.
Additionally, they will work to define a clear roadmap on ratcheting
up climate finance to USD 100 billion by 2020
Outcome of COP 21
The outcome covers all the crucial areas identified as essential
for a landmark conclusion:
 Mitigation – reducing emissions fast enough to achieve the
temperature goal
 A transparency system and global stock-take – accounting for
climate action
 Adaptation – strengthening ability of countries to deal with
climate impacts
 Loss and damage – strengthening ability to recover from
climate impacts
 Support – including finance, for nations to build clean, resilient
COP 21 to COP 22
Way forward
Before COP 22 in November 2016 parties have committed to
process the agreement by ratification, acceptance and
approval. At least 55 countries have to sign so that it will
come into force
Until April 2017 parties have to define their National
Determined Contribution (NDC), based on the conditions as
agreed and on the earlier submitted Indented National
Determined Contribution (INDC)
Deadline of submission is 21 April 2017 to UN head office in
New York
Reflection of PH Delegation
to COP 21
“Now we have a universal
agreement. We have found
a common ground where we
could work on and move
forward as one family of
nations with greater ambition
and resolve, to really combat
effectively the climate
change impacts,”
Emmanuel de Guzman, head of the
Philippine delegation
Philippine Influence in
Paris Agreement
 Championed its main advocacy of raising global ambition
by limiting temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius
 Joined and enabled the High Ambition Coalition, which
pushed for 1.5 degrees Celsius goal
 Instrumental in the inclusion of human rights and
ecological integrity in the Paris Agreement
 Played a role in the recognition of loss and damage as a
separate issue from adaptation
 Ensured the qualified ‘grant-based’ in the provision of
COP 21 Commitments of the
Among the commitments of the Philippines to address
climate change is to reduce carbon emissions by 70% by 2030,
as stated in its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution
(INDC) submitted to UNFCCC October 2015 and conditional
The reduction will come from the country’s energy, transport,
waste, forestry and industry sectors.
CCC Commissioner Emmanuel de Guzman, on the other hand,
called for a global warming target less than 1.5 degrees C.
