Demands that the EARTH JUSTICE and YOUTH ASKED FOR AND WE SUPPORT, they are not small but essential:
- Reject offsets and stop the transition of the Clean Development Mechanism into the guidelines for implementation of the Paris Agreement in the guise of the Sustainable Development Mechanism.
- Honor the international Moratorium on geoengineering established by the Convention on Biological Diversity.
- Reject Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) projects, and other technofixes.
- Stop the conversion of local agricultural lands to non-food production purposes.
- Reject reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, Internationally-Traded Mitigation Outcomes (ITMOs), and all forms of carbon trading schemes that undermine human rights, including indigenous cultures, territorial sovereignty, and integrity.
- Stop supporting and promoting burning biomass as renewable energy and reject the substitution of biofuels and bioenergy as an alternative to fossil fuels.
- Reject corporate-fronted schemes promoting so-called “Climate Smart Agriculture”.
- Find alternative energy jobs for those that will be losing their fossil fuels jobs. Create a transitional plans.
- Reduce CO2 emissions to under 1.5 and maintain them.
- Allow native people’s to have positions of stewardship over the land where ever possible
