08:00 AM - 09:30 AM        (CR.12) Empowering Women in Climate Action.
The government of France, together with the United Nations Development Programme and UN Women, are organizing a High Level Event on ‘Empowering Women in Climate Action’ during the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015, with the participation of the governments of Peru and Morocco. In the lead up to the Paris Climate Change Conference, where State parties will agree on a new agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, it is critical to look
at the gender equality dimensions of climate action, so that the new climate agreement responds and contributes to the central role women play in building resilience and supporting low emission development. It is equally critical that any future climate agreement reduces, rather than exacerbates, gender inequalities.
The High Level Event on ‘Empowering Women in Climate Action’ will deliver a political statement on the importance of scaling up gender-responsive climate actions and empowering women as an effective response to climate change. The event will include a presentation by the Green Climate Fund on its gender policy and the prospects for financing, implementing, and assessing genderresponsive initiatives.

High level ministerial breakfast event on inequalities and the Post-2015 agenda organized by the Government of Finland, together with OHCHR and UN Women on the occasion of the General Assembly High Level Segment.


09:00 AM - 11:00 AM        (CR.5) Climate Risk and Early Warning Systems (CREWS): Early Warning System and Risk Information to reduce climate impacts in vulnerable countries.
Extreme weather events are among the most dramatic consequences of climate variability and change. Vulnerable countries such as small island developing states and least developed countries often lack early warning systems (EWS) and risk information needed for prevention and preparedness.
At the Sendai Conference, and looking forward to COP21, France called upon the international community to support early warning systems and risk information as a way to reduce risk and to increase resilience for these countries.
Endorsed by the G7, the CREWS initiative will partner with the main international organizations engaged in disaster risk reduction and donor countries to provide financial and technical support to vulnerable countries.
This event is organized by the Permanent Mission of France, in collaboration with the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), the World Bank, the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

10:00 AM - 11:15 AM        (CR.3) The International Court of Justice: a contemporary court.
“70 years UN is a time of reviewing and looking forward how to adapt the UN to the needs and complexities of this age. This is also true for the International Court of Justice, one of the principal organs of the UN, which celebrates its 70th anniversary in April 2016. Cases have become more complex and have moved into new fields not anticipated at the time of adopting the Charter and the ICJ Statute. Treaties with compromissory clauses are increasingly specialized and cover a wide range of topics, resulting in a variety of, sometimes very technical, issues to be dealt with by the Court. At the same time, the acceptance by States of the compulsory jurisdiction of the Court remains important for the functioning of the international legal order. As the host country, the Kingdom of the Netherlands, stands ready to support the work of the Court in clarifying its role, and strengthening the cooperation with the main organs of the UN in New York.
Objective: The objective of the event is to raise awareness on the work of the Court, demonstrate how it has adapted over the years and as a contemporary court stands ready to promote the peaceful settlement of disputes in the world. The focus is on the continued relevance of the Court for the future as demonstrated by the ability of the Court to adapt its work to contemporary problems and to the development of international law, as for instance demonstrated by recent decisions on land and maritime boundaries, the environment and the situation in former Yugoslavia.”
An event hosted by His Majesty King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands.
Co-hosted by H.E. Dalia Grybauskaite, President of Lithuania and H.E. Thomas Boni Yayi, President of Benin.
Organized in cooperation with the International Court of Justice.

03:00 PM - 05:00 PM        (CR.3) OHCHR Global Panel: “Moving Away from the Death Penalty – The Voices of Victims’ Families”.
There is a widespread assumption that victims’ families believe that only the death penalty can provide justice. But this is not accurate. Often murder victims’ families believe the death penalty is harmful and interferes with a difficult healing process, a process that is exacerbated by long delays, a decrease in actual executions, and a belief that responding to one killing with another does not honour the victim. In addition to the trauma suffered by family members and the family of the condemned inmate, there are adverse effects of executions on third parties such as judges, jurors, judicial staff, prison staff, journalists, clergy and spiritual advisors. These are intangible emotional and psychological costs that should be taken into consideration in weighing the costs of the death penalty.
The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), in cooperation with the Permanent Missions to the United Nations of Italy, Argentina, Benin, Fiji. France and Rwanda, is continuing its series of ‘knowledge events’ on the death penalty with a global panel event on the death penalty and the voices of victims’ families in the death penalty debate. The objectives of the panel are to share experiences from persons intimately involved in decisions as to whether justice means the ultimate punishment – execution.
