MANILA DECLARATION


Item #d95apr133

Representatives of 33 nations in the Asia-Pacific region signed a statement in February that expressed concern over the vulnerability of the region to the impacts of climate change, and called for cooperation from the developed countries in mitigating climate change. The declaration was drafted and signed at the Asia-Pacific Leaders' conference, convened in the Philippines by the Philippine Senate with support from the Climate Institute and others. A major recommendation is an international public-private partnership to accelerate applications of renewable and energy efficiency technologies in developing countries. The statement also specifies actions to be taken within the nations of the region, such as the development of national action plans. The Manila Declaration was expected to be presented at the first conference of parties to the climate convention in Berlin.

The January-February issue of the Climate Institute newsletter Climate Alert is devoted to the conference, and includes the full texts of addresses made there by Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto and Philippine President Fidel Ramos.
