HOLY SEE PROPOSALS ADP 2.11
10 main points based on the Encyclical Laudato sì’ (LS)
1. Promote the common responsibility (LS 170) and global solidarity, in light of the urgency of a situation that requires the widest possible cooperation for a common plan (LS 164). In this context, it seems appropriate to recall the responsibilities towards future generations (LS 159-161) and the most vulnerable sectors of the current generation.
2. Make explicit reference to the commitment to achieve two interconnected objectives: eradicating poverty and easing the effects of climate change (LS 172).
3. Developed countries should take the lead (LS 172) to promote collaboration in the development and transfer of appropriate technologies for adaptation and mitigation, especially for the most vulnerable groups.
4. Strengthen finance sources and develop finance alternatives, with particular attention to the identification of incentives, elimination of subsidies and the prevention of speculation (LS 171).
5. Encourage the transition to low-carbon economies through activities that promote renewable energies (LS 26 e 164), energy efficiency (LS 26, 164 and 180), dematerialization (LS 26 e 180), adequate management of transport (LS 26 e 180) and forests (LS 164).
6. Advance sustainable consumption and production patterns (LS 180), education to sustainable lifestyle (LS 164 and 206) and responsible awareness (LS 202 e 231).
7. Pay attention to food security, and in particular to appropriate, sustainable and diversified agricultural systems (LS 164 and 180).
8. Keep references to social issues and decent jobs.
9. Ensure the participation of the local population, including indigenous people,
in the decision-making processes (LS 143-146).
10. Provide for a follow-up and commitment review process in a transparent, efficient and dynamic manner, capable of gradually increasing the level of ambitions, as well as ensuring adequate control (LS 167).

Non-papers presented by the Co-Chairs on 5 October 2015, namely:Draft Agreement; Draft Decision;Draft decision on work-stream 2 of the ADP, and taking into account the GENEVA NEGOTIATING TEXT – FCCC/ADP/2015/1 of 25 February 2015 (GT), the following is proposed:

Amend Pp6: «Recognizing the need for long-term efforts in transitioning to low- carbon economies, as well as the importance of developing opportunities with high mitigation potential, including those with adaptation, health, poverty eradication and sustainable development co-benefits, taking into account the particular and specific needs of Parties particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, especially the least developed country (LDC) Parties » [GT pp16, 21.5.b.iii, 5 Option 2 5.5, and 190].
Insert a new preambular paragraph: «Acknowledging that the global nature and urgency of climate change, which represents an urgent and potentially irreversible threat to present and future generations of humankind, as well as to the planet, our common home, call for the widest possible cooperation of all Parties through an effective and appropriate ambitious international response, in accordance with equity, global solidarity and common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities of the Parties» [GT pp12 pp10 Option b].

It may be appropriate to explore additional ways to strengthen, in the Agreement, the following concepts:
education to sustainable lifestyle;
sustainable consumption and production patterns;1
just transition of the workforce and the creation of decent jobs;

5 years review cycle and mechanisms for mitigation/INDCs targets, climate finance,
