I understand that wars and militarism make us less safe rather than protect us, that they kill, injure and traumatize adults, children and infants, severely damage the natural environment, erode civil liberties, and drain our economies, siphoning resources from life-affirming activities. I commit to engage in and support nonviolent efforts to end all war and preparations for war and to create a sustainable and just peace.

    Speakers:

    • Rep. Sheila Babauta, 22nd CNMI Legislature – Natural Resources Committee Chairwoman, Northern Mariana Islands.
    • Stuart Parkinson, Executive Director of Scientists for Global Responsibility.

    Objectives of this event:

    • Draw out the outcomes from COP26 in relation to Climate and Peace.
    • Hear from communities affected by militarism, the climate crisis and its interplay.  
    • Offer approaches to bridge the gap between policy and actions in communities,
    • Reflect together, support and promote actions that will make a difference in challenging militarism and its climate impacts.

    Brief description and context:

    There is growing consensus that we are rapidly moving towards climate and ecosystem collapse and that urgent action is needed. COP26 saw widespread civil society mobilisations, a resulting pressure triggered heightened ambitions at the negotiating table. Despite some welcome progress on methane, deforestation and the Paris rulebook, commitments in the Glasgow declaration remain insufficient, with warming on track to exceed the 1.5 limit. Greenhouse gas emissions by the military sector continue to be excluded from climate neutrality pledges and military emission did not make it to the COP26 agenda. The UNFCCC framework compels some states to report their emissions on a yearly basis, yet reporting on military emissions is often incomplete if reported at all, and military expenditure is increasing year on year. The voices of those most affected by the climate crisis continue to be notably excluded from the negotiating table, and COP26 was no exception. Communities that are affected by militarist policies, also come from territories that are living the impacts of the climate crisis. Any credible climate negotiation should amplify the voices of those who, having contributed the least to the climate crisis, are shouldering the costs.

    This event will provide a space to share ways forward to raise momentum, working to ensure adequate, transparent reporting of military emissions at climate summits. This includes opposing hard security approaches and forefronting human security, which prioritises human rights safeguards, prevention work and well-equipped public services over militarised responses. Public funds dedicated to the military could be better used when redirected to support climate action: including loss and damage, adaptation and mitigation. We hope to inspire the audience to challenge manifestations of militarism in their daily lives, as well as organise to build momentum and ensure that military emissions make it to the COP27 agenda.
