【COP18】菲律賓代表發言 會場激動哽咽

文字-A A +A

菲律賓代表於會場落淚,以下為發言文稿:

謝謝各位,以下我將為我的國家發表談話。首先,我完全支持由阿爾及利亞代表G77和中國所做出的聲明。我有幸代表菲律賓共和國所屬的七千一百座島嶼和一百萬人發言。我同時也為數百名在悲劇事件中死去的人民發言。在此我感謝主席、副主席和您們組織內的工作者,因為您們的帶領才讓我們在重要議題上有了進展。我也要感謝秘書長支持AWG-KP的工作。我同時也要感謝為此次杜哈會議能夠達到顯著成果而貢獻努力的各方代表。我要謝謝您們和您們代表的團體,包括附表一國家的代表們,一直秉持誠摯的態度來支持京都議定書。

讓我藉著這個機會對多方表達感謝:來自民間的社會團體及個人,我們的好朋友與同事,還有青年組織,在這個對菲律賓人最艱困的時候,團結一致,代表我國向外發聲。在此,我也向這些與我們站在一起、深深觸動我們內心的青年組織,致上特別的感謝之意。

我們對於我們的處境深感焦慮,乃至於思量我們的努力是否足夠;在回應其他國家對我們的索求,我們是否基於公平正義的原則?我們是否實踐了在德班達成的承諾?我們看見的,是一個半滿的水杯,亦或是一個半空的水杯呢?還是就整體而言,是個空杯子呢?

雖然,在我們面前的條文,在千頭萬緒的討論之下逐漸成型,然而,這份條文其實也反應出各方在許多面向上的意見分歧;值得一提的就是,對於眼前的狀況,我們仍無因應之道。開發中的國家們,提出具體的提案,並不辭辛勞地在多個議題上,包括目標設定機制(Ambition Mechanism)、持續存在的配額單位(AAU)過高問題、合適性、臨時申請案(Provisional Application)、減排數量等等,盡可能與其他國家達成共識;致力於確保第二階段的承諾具有實質意義,並且促使第二階段的共識,能夠成為讓各國更加積極於氣候議題的契機。

我們同樣地擔心我們如何在許多協商中取得進展,更重要的是,我們如何確保我們在京都議定書的第二個承諾期有更大的野心,而且確保這些為了緩和氣候變遷及調適而制定的執行方法能增強全球的企圖心。我們的憂慮,同時也肇因於關於執行目標和方法的那些另外正在發生的事,尤其是財務方面,但還包括調適性策略、科技及碳容量的建立這些重要的議題。

今天是非常重要的一刻。我們離京都議定書第二個承諾期還有25天。但實際上我們不是真的還有25天。我們只剩幾個寶貴的小時而已。我們正位在緊要的關頭。接下來的幾個小時對我們來說代表的是決定性的機會,確保我們在正確的軌道上處理氣候危機。

在杜哈這裡,京都議定書是成功的關鍵,也是企圖心的基石,如果沒有多國參與的話。簡單地說,我們不接受失敗。我們相信京都議定書具有企圖心的成果已經唾手可得。在您英明的領導,以及副主席和工作人員的努力之下,這樣的成功看似近在咫呎。可惜的是,隨著AWG的結束,我們的目標似乎越來越遠。

我的代表團有個重要的背景,那就是我們已經面臨到氣候變遷的嚴重影響。當我們坐在這裡的每個小時,並且拖延又猶豫不決的當下,死亡人數也同時攀升中。這是個巨大而影響深遠的災難。成千上萬的人民無家可歸。當Bopha颱風接近菲律賓西部另一個人口密集地區時,強大的威力使得我們的苦難離終點仍遙遙無期。主席大人,我們從未遇過像Bopha這樣的颱風,對國家造成半世紀以來從所未見的浩劫。這樣令人心碎的悲劇並不只發生在菲律賓,全世界,尤其是仍在為解決貧困問題及社會發展而奮鬥著的開發中國家,也都面臨著相同的困境。

最後,主席,我代表1億個菲律賓人發言,其中有25萬人在卡達這裡工作糊口。我在此做出急切的呼籲,不是以協商者的身分,不是以我們代表團團長的身分,而是以身為一個菲律賓人民的身分。

我呼籲全世界,我呼籲來自世界各地的領導者,張開我們的雙眼正視我們面對的現實。部長們,我懇求您。

我們協商的成果不應該是政治人物想要的成果,而是70億人民的需求。

我懇求所有的人,拜託,不要再拖延,不要再有藉口。拜託,讓杜哈因我們開始建立扭轉局勢的政策而被後人記得,讓2012這一年因世界建立了勇氣,找到為了我們想要的未來應承擔的意志而被記得。

我問在場的各位,如果不是我們,那要讓誰來做這件事呢?如果不是現在,那要等到什麼時候?如果不在這裡,那應該在哪裡?

謝謝您主席。

Madam Chair,

Thank you for giving me the floor. I wish to make a statement on behalf of my own country.

At the onset, let me fully support the statement made by Algeria on behalf of G77 and China.

I have the honor to speak on behalf of the Republic of the Philippines, its 7,100 islands, and 100 million people. I also speak on behalf of the hundreds who have perished in the tragedy back home.

Let me thank you, Madame Chair, your Vice-Chair and your facilitators, for guiding us with the work that has resulted in progress on many of the key issues. I thank the secretariat as well for the support they have provided for our work in the AWG-KP. I wish to also thank Parties who have earnestly worked hard toward arriving at an ambitious successful outcome here in Doha. I do sincerely thank Parties and groups of Parties who have remained sincere, including those Annex I Parties who remain sincere in sustaining the KP regime.

Let me also take this opportunity to thank the many Parties, organizations from civil society, individuals, friends and colleagues, and youth organizations who have expressed solidarity for the Philippines in this very trying times for my country. I wish to specially thank the youth organizations who have profoundly touched our hearts for standing with us

We are deeply concerned about where we stand now. Have we done enough? Have we managed to give justice to what the world demands of us? Have we honored the package we got out of Durban? Do we see a glass half full? A glass half empty? Or an empty glass altogether?

While we have seen substantial progress in the development of the text we have in front of us, this text remains reflective of a wide divergence among Parties, especially still fraught with options that fail to respond to the realities that we face. Developing countries have put forward concrete proposals, and have painstakingly worked on arriving at a common ground on many issues, including the ambition mechanism, carry-over of surplus AAUs, eligibility, provisional application, and numbers, in the earnest endeavor to make the 2nd commitment period a meaningful one, a 2nd commitment period that can provide the crucial basis for further enhancing global ambition.

We are likewise worried in terms of how we move progress in the work under the various negotiating fronts, most importantly on how we ensure that we pursue high level of ambition for the second commitment period of KP, and ensure means of implementation to enhance global ambition, both for mitigation and adaptation.

We are worried, also because of the context of what is happening in other tracks in relation to ambition and means of implementation, especially on finance, but to include all the important issues of adaptation, technology, capacity building.

This day marks a very crucial moment. We are 25 days away from the end of the 1st CP of KP. But we don’t really have 25 days. We have a few precious hours left. We are at a critical juncture. The next few hours represent a crucial opportunity for us to ensure that we are on the right trajectory to address the climate crisis. KP is the linchpin of success here in Doha, and the cornerstone of ambition, if not the whole multilateral regime. Failure is simply not acceptable.

We have made ourselves believe that a successful ambitious outcome in KP is within reach. Under your able guidance, and with the hard work of your Vice-Chair and your facilitators, this may be in sight. However, as we close this AWG, ambition continues to elude us.

An important backdrop for my delegation is the profound impacts of climate change that we are already confronting. As we sit here, every single hour, even as we vacillate and procrastinate here, the death toll is rising. There is massive and widespread devastation. Hundreds of thousands of people have been rendered without homes. And the ordeal is far from over, as Typhoon Bopha has regained some strength as it approaches another populated area in the western part of the Philippines. Madam Chair, we have never had a typhoon like Bopha, which has wreaked havoc in a part of the country that has never seen a storm like this in half a century. And heartbreaking tragedies like this is not unique to the Philippines, because the whole world, especially developing countries struggling to address poverty and achieve social and human development, confront these same realities.

Finally, Madam Chair, I speak on behalf of 100 million Filipinos, a quarter of a million of whom are eking out a living working here in Qatar. And I am making an urgent appeal, not as a negotiator, not as a leader of my delegation, but as a Filipino.

I appeal to the whole world, I appeal to leaders from all over the world, to open our eyes to the stark reality that we face. I appeal to ministers.

The outcome of our work is not about what our political masters want. It is about what is demanded of us by 7 billion people.

I appeal to all, please, no more delays, no more excuses. Please, let Doha be remembered as the place where we found the political will to turn things around. Please, let 2012 be remembered as the year the world found the courage to find the will to take responsibility for the future we want.

I ask of all of us here, if not us, then who ? If not now, then when ? If not here, then where ?

Thank you Madam Chair
