The 2019 CDM Accords

Purpose:

This accord is made to reflect the 2015 Paris Accords where almost all macronations of this world signed an agreement to work on Climate Change, this accord is made to be directed at all micronations which wish to sign this accord.

Section One: Assistance

Article One:

Provide reasonable assistance (where or if possible within geographical or resource restrictions) to accord signatory micronations, in the event that there is an unreasonable impact on the citizens, environment & ecosystems of signatories by the decisions of Macronational Authorities regarding especially climate change, the built environment or failure to provide reasonable services to the community (possibly even tools or resources to restore a signatory’s full capabilities - as well as where possible the local community it surrounds/lives among Macronationally)

Article Two:

To recognize experts from signatories in building up best practice in order to alleviate climate change and man made disasters as an additional resource that may or may not already be provided by Macronational authorities.

Article Three:

To establish and provide good communications & assistance, and furthermore practice during ‘good times’ to raise awareness of the efforts of micronations in prevention & response of said emergencies without getting in the way of any administration’s efforts in these areas - whilst also protecting each other’s citizens and ecosystems.

Article Four:

To recognize the efforts of a micronation’s personnel in the efforts against the effects of climate change & man made disaster.

Article Five:

Provide a resource to show the value of the resources (human and material) of signatories and/or other Micronations to Macronations in times of natural & man-made disaster.

Article Six:  

To allow incorporation into geographically coordinated emergency procedures to enable a more thorough response (especially to the ongoing Climate Emergency - i.e. brush fires, flash  flooding, etc. & Austerity-caused failure in man-made infrastructures i.e. buildings, dams, etc.)

Article Seven:

To provide diplomatically-provided experience to both Macro and Micronational Administrations alike on emergency response

Article Eight:

To pool resources & talents from our populations in the event of an emergency

Section Two: Education and Community Outreach

Article One:

Creating public events bringing light to the effects of climate change and how the future will look like

Article Two:

Promotion of energy sources which provide clean and renewable energy for a nation, i.e Solar panels, wind, hydroelectric, landfill gas and biomass

Article Three:

Creation of programs and campaigns to inform the public and community on ecological problems such as waste

Article Four:

Participate in community events to help “beautify” areas of interest such as trails, beaches, highways, and parks.

Article Five:

Promote the benefits & use of ‘Active Travel’ (I.e. Cycling, Walking & Green/Carbon Neutral Transit) options for day-to-day travel & logistics

Article Six:

Promote improvements in infrastructure in each host Macronation, in order to make Active Travel a more viable alternative to petrochemical or ‘non-green’ means (I.e. reopening of disused railroads/railway lines for passenger ‘heavy rail’ or preferably light/tram use, with interconnected bus/cycle way metro models - especially to more remote communities)

Article Seven:

Promote the advantages of e bike & electric vehicle technologies, as well as campaign for more grant-enabled access to such technologies - especially in disadvantaged households.

Article Eight:

Promote the de-roadification of urban environments & better spending parity on Active Travel Methods

Article Nine:

Promote the benefits & use of low-voltage (I.e. 5v ‘USB- Universal Serial Bus’, 12 & 24v) options for day-to-day domestic power supply & renewable charging systems using affordable methods - along with programmed transition to these options overall but the most power-intensive appliances like heaters, refrigeration units & cookers - as well as Micro-Generation main ‘feed-in’

Article Ten:

Promote (where mains power is the only affordable option for day-to-day household running) transitioning to low-power devices to replace more inefficient devices that can be replaced (e.g. all domestic lighting to low power LED options where incandescent or power-intensive lighting is currently used) so as to reduce each signatory' impact on the national power grids

Article Eleven:

Promote ‘up-cycling’ initiatives (e.g. Repair Cafes) & provide educational programming for such, so as to provide skills & alternatives to waste-inducing practices as well as enhancing the micronational economy.

Article Twelve:

Promote easy-to-implement planting of fruit/vegetable foodstuffs that is suitable/growable in its geographical environment, as well as encouraging economic trading with the wider Host Macronational economy of such goods.

Article Thirteen:

Promote a campaign for growing of abandoned or ‘set-aside’ land that has not been used in 12 months

Article Fourteen:

Promote a campaign for re-purposing for homeless & social residential needs, all homes that have been unoccupied for longer than 6 months in host Macronations

Article Fifteen:

Promote renewable or carbon-neutral alternatives to landfill waste.

Article Sixteen:

Promote localization programs for reducing the reasons for needing to go out of one’s locale for jobs, experience, transport, goods, services, well being, etc. and hence reduce the overall carbon footprint

Article Seventeen:

Promote the need to decentralize big decisions & big events in Macronations (e.g. sporting events, shopping events, concerts, council meetings, etc.) to allow communities & micronations to participate more meaningfully whilst also reducing the overall carbon footprint by increasing the number of locations in which people can participate in said activities (especially using Digital Governance technologies & experiences that can be derived from micronational signatories)

Article Eighteen:

Promote decentralization & use Active Travel options for logistics of Services: to reduce overall Carbon Footprint & improve overall well being

Article Nineteen:

Promote the establishment of laws to make statutory provision of more enablements for the most vulnerable in society, as well as to include them in local, regional and national governance mechanisms.

Article Twenty:

Promote & Campaign (where required) of reintroduction, refinancing & decentralizing of the Micro generational ‘Feed-in’ Tariffs by Macronational Power Generation Companies.

Article Twenty One:

Promote & Campaign (where required) for the introduction of compost & methane reclamation from agricultural sources, for gas supply usage as an alternative to shale & fossil fuel gas sources.

Article Twenty Two:

Promote & Campaign for the phasing out of non-carbon neutral petrochemical generators, for better alternatives by ‘power bank’ technologies

Article Twenty Three:

Promote & campaign for the teaching of practical (rather than just theoretical) knowledge in the national curriculum of each Macronation of basic Electrical & Electronic Engineering skills, aimed at installation & maintenance of renewable micro generation sources in every home by the occupant/owner - as well as showcasing of Micronational solutions to such efforts for better renewable education - so as to encourage the growth of the Green Energy Sector as a Decentralized & Socially-Integrated practice in all walks of life.

Article Twenty Four:

Promote and campaign for the decentralization of teaching & learning - with more focus on lifelong learning & establishing at an early age basic skill sets in society & alternative methods to ‘progress’ & different learning styles, so as to reduce the carbon footprint over-dependence on centralized infrastructure - as well as enabling to the best possible extent the most vulnerable in society in their areas of interest & talent.

Twenty Five:

Promote and campaign for the reduction in dependency of Petrochemical Air & Sea Travel, as well as improvements to renewable technologies on Air & Sea Fleets
