but funds will only flow from agreement in CancunA high level analysis of climate finance submitted to the United Nations yesterday has demonstrated the feasibility of putting up by 2020 US$100 billion a year in public funding to fight climate change.According to WWF, this conservative analysis by the special High-level Advisory Group on Climate Change Finance (AGF) sets the stage for a finance agreement to come out of the UN climate summit starting late this month in Cancun, Mexico.The AGF was set up by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in February, Co-chaired by Prime Minister Stoltenberg from Norway, and Prime Minister Zenawi from Ethiopia, to explore innovative financing sources and mobilize the financing promised for climate change during the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen last December.President Bharrat Jagdeo sits on the High-level Advisory Group.“The Secretary General’s high level group has come up with the financial mechanisms, now we look to Governments to come up with the political mechanisms to get the finance actually flowing, ” said Gordon Shepherd, leader of WWF’s Global Climate Initiative Financing.The funding, Yaya Sanogo Arsenal Jersey UK, agreed to in principle under the Copenhagen Accord from the last UN climate summit, is needed to support action in developing countries to halt the destruction of tropical forests, speed the transition away from high-emission models of development, and to help vulnerable countries adapt to climate change impacts.“These public funds are critical to speed up the development and implementation of new technologies, as well as for adaptation and resilience building, new energy efficient infrastructure, and for construction. It will also be used to leverage private sector finance which will contribute much of the investments needed in clean energy technologies, ” said Shepherd.“Our experience is that public investment and initiatives play key roles in mobilising and directing private investment.”The AGF report gives strong support for financing from carbon pricing mechanisms, with one of the most promising sectors being international aviation and maritime transport, whose emissions are as yet unregulated.“We expect decisive action in Cancun to put this finance source on a fast track to implementation, ” said Shepherd.Other promising sources were downplayed because of opposition from some individual group members, with the chief casualty being the financial transaction tax (FTT).Although the assumptions used by the AGF to assess the scale of potential financing generated are extremely conservative, and some members placed undue emphasis on private sector investments in meeting the $100 billion per year financing milestone, the report provides a useful starting point for moving forward.Parties in Cancun can build upon the AGF recommendation on the way to establishing a much needed new UN Climate Fund and could contribute to host country Mexico’s wish for progress on all elements of a “balanced” Cancun package.Responding to the publication of the report, Steve Herz of Greenpeace International said: “Developed countries now have no excuse to delay meeting their promise to raise $100bn a year by 2020 to support climate action in the developing world.“It is now clear that it is both technically feasible and politically possible for governments to raise substantial amounts of public money for climate action from new mechanisms, such as pricing emissions from international air travel and shipping.”“In fact, developed countries can meet their Copenhagen commitments without raiding existing aid programs, and without counting the face value of loans or private sector investments, rather than their grant component.”Greenpeace is calling on Governments gathering at the upcoming climate talks in Cancun, Mexico, to make clear progress on outlining how decisions on innovative sources of funding will be taken and to build upon their Copenhagen commitments by agreeing that they will provide at least US$100 billion in public finance that is new and additional to existing aid targets, as a significant milestone towards achieving the public funding that is actually needed.

As the Guyana National Bureau of Standards (GNBS) commences this new initiative to share weekly insights in this column “Standards In Focus” on the various aspects of Standardisation, Consumerism, and activities and services offered to its stakeholders, it is best to begin by establishing in the minds of readers an understanding of what are standards bodies and the activities in which they are engaged.Wikipedia defines Standards organization, standards body, standards developing organization (SDO), or standards setting organization (SSO) as “any organization whose primary activities are developing, coordinating, promulgating, revising, amending, reissuing, interpreting, or otherwise producing technical standards that are intended to address the needs of some relatively wide base of affected adopters”.Put simply, standards bodies produce standards to satisfy the needs of stakeholders.In almost every country of the world standards bodies can be found. They are usually categorised as private or public, national or international. All CARICOM member states have their established national standards bodies, for example, the Trinidad and Tobago Bureau of Standards (TTBS), the Jamaica Bureau of Standards (JBS) and the St. Lucia Bureau of Standards.  Meanwhile, the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the International Organisation for Legal Metrology (OIML) are all international standards bodies which exist.Like the GNBS, which is the National Standards Body in Guyana, standards bodies are established to develop, promote or where necessary implement standards to regulate the quality of goods and services. Most National Standards Bodies are geared to develop technical standards to improve production and trade, ensure safety and protect consumers against health hazards and fraud in all aspects of life.The Guyana National Bureau of Standards (not to be confused with the Bureau of Statistics) was established under the Standards Act No. 11 of 1984 and its vision is to improve the quality of goods and services in Guyana by partnering with Government, Consumers and Industry, through the process of standardisation.In an effort to fulfil its mandate, the Bureau provides a number of essential services which are geared to foster the development of key sectors of our economy, such as agriculture, forestry, manufacturing, health, tourism and the construction sector. These services include Standards development, Technical Assistance to companies, Training Services, Auditing Services, Product Certification, Laboratory Certification, Testing Services, Legal Metrology Services, and the monitoring of some imported and locally manufactured products.More specifically, the GNBS develops national standards based on the needs of stakeholders, promotes and implements standards to improve the products, services, processes and practices of industry, and provides testing, verification and calibration services in areas such as mass, length, volume, temperature and pressure to maintain the accuracy and traceability to international measurement standards.To ensure the delivery of quality and reliable services to its stakeholders, the staff complement of the GNBS comprises mainly of Technical Officers, Inspectors and Laboratory Technician who are trained to provide the various services falling under their purview. Further, over the years, the GNBS has managed to decentralize the provision of some services from its Head office in Sophia by establishing sub –offices in some Administrative Regions of Guyana.This has allowed its stakeholders residing in outlying areas to readily access the services they need from the organisation.As the discipline of standardisation continues to expand to meet the needs of the individuals, companies, industries and sectors of the national and the global economy, the scope of work for standards bodies would have to be widened to meet those needs.For the GNBS, Adrian Gonzalez Jersey, it will continue to engage in the process of continual improvement and collaborate with other standards institutions worldwide to train its staff and build capacity to offer the kinds of services needed in Guyana within the ambit of Standardisation.For further information, please contact the GNBS on telephone numbers: 219-0062, 219-0065 or 219-0069 or visit its website www.gnbsgy.org
