Question for written answer E-000916-12
to the Commission
Rule 117
Younous Omarjee (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  OCT participation in the Global Climate Change Alliance
 Answer in writing 

The aim of the Global Climate Change Alliance, launched by the Commission in 2007, is to deepen dialogue and cooperation on climate change between the European Union and the poor developing countries that are the most vulnerable to climate change, in particular the least developed countries (LDCs) and small island developing states (SIDS).

Overseas countries and territories (OCTs) are small developing countries and island regions, but no formal arrangements have been made for them to participate in the Global Climate Change Alliance.

This is a serious problem for SIDS and OCTs. The networks created and regional meetings organised by the Global Climate Change Alliance should include OCTs so that ideas can be better shared and experiences can be exchanged on a wide scale.

Can the Commission bring the OCTs into the Global Climate Change Alliance?
