核エネルギーとその影響を検証することをSBSTTAに提言する

2013年3月15日
国連生物多様性の10年市民ネットワーク(JCN-UNDB)

  1. 国連は「すべての人に持続可能なエネルギーを」や「気候変動」対策を推進しており、CBD加盟国にも原発を推進している国があるが、原発事故の負の影響が生物多様性に及ぼす影響が生物多様性戦略計画2011-2012の実施に与える影響について国連加盟国ならびにCBD締結国は十分認識している必要がある
  2. いくつかの研究は既に事故の生物多様性へのインパクトについて検証し、そういった科学データが準備され一般に公開されるべきであると指摘している。
  3. 原発は多くの場合、地方の生物多様性が豊かな地域にたてられる。それは小規模農家や漁民らが生物多様性の恵みをうけた暮らしを享受する場所でもある。けれども事故がおきれば、彼らは最も影響を受けることになることはもちろんのこと、高齢者、子供、女性、先住民や地域社会など、弱い立場にある人々は汚染地域から離れ、自然と共生する暮らしが長年に渡りできない状況になる。
  4. これは生物多様性戦略のビジョンが示す「自然共生した社会を2050年までにつくる」という目標に反するものである。
  5. この問題は愛知ターゲット全体に関わるが、特に目標3(有害な補助金)、7(一次産業)、14(生態系サービスを享受した暮らしの営み)や19(科学技術)に関連している。
  6. 原発の問題について触れたSBSTTA16での先住民族地域共同体の発言、ならびにこの会議で引用された国連気候変動交渉の先住民族代表の発言は考慮されるべきである。
  7. この問題について、SBSTTAが科学技術的ニーズの必要性を明らかにし、その提案がCBDにおいて検討され受け入れられるようすべきである。
  8. 福島の農家のCBD-COP11での発言は聴衆の関心と共感を集めた。
  9. CBDが原発の負の影響について十分配慮し適切な決断を行なうことを求める。これは我々世代が直面した問題であり、将来世代のためにも早急に適切な決断がなされねばならない。

Nuclear Energy
Recommendation to include Nuclear Energy and its effectin the SBSTTA consideration
Submission to the CBD

March 15, 2013
Japan Civil Network for the United Nations Decades on Biodiversity(JCN-UNDB)

Whereas the aftermath of the explosion of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear
Plants on the occasion of the East Japan Earthquake of March 11m 2011 has
proved that the use of Nuclear Energy endangers life and its diversity, we,
the Japan Civil Network for the United Nations Decades on Biodiversity
(JCN-UNDB), requests SBSTTA to fully recognize and officially make

recommendation on the scientific and technical needs to identify the effect of
nuclear energy and its effect related to the implementation of the Strategic
Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020.
Recommendation:
Recognizing that “Sustainable energy for all” and the “Climate Change” are the key
areas of consideration in the United Nations, and some parties of the CBD are also
pursuing the solution in nuclear energy, we feel it is important that all the member stads
of the United Nations and the parties of CBD are fully aware of the harmful effects and
damage of nuclear energy on biodiversity therefore in implementation of the Strategic
Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020.
Some researches (*1) identify the impact of nuclear power accidents and recommends
that such scientific data should be well prepared and shared with the public since its
effect is vital to all life on earth.
Most nuclear power plants are built in rural, biodiversity rich area where small farmers
and fisher-people make their lives with rich natural bounty. They are the ones who
live in harmony with nature and protect biodiversity. However, once accident happens,
they will be the ones who are most affected. Not to mention, children, elderly, women,
indigenous peoples and communities, vulnerable people would also need special
attention. Peoples are forced to leave from contaminated areas cannot continue their
ordinary life any longer and it is said that people might not be able to enjoy lives in
harmony with nature in such area for years.
That is largely against the vision stated in the Strategic Plan; “By 2050, biodiversity is
valued, conserved, restored and wisely used, maintaining ecosystem services, sustaining
a healthy planet and delivering benefits essential for all people.”
While it has effects in all aspects of the strategic plan, some relevant Aichi
Biodiversity targets are:
Target 3: Harmful subsidiaries, Target 7: Agricultures, Target 14: Ecosystem
Services, and Target 19, Science and Technologies.
Also, statement made by the Indigenous peoples and local communites (ILCs) (*2)
and the reference of the statement by Fiu Elisara, Samoan Executive Director of the O le
Siosiomaga Society and indigenous representative to the UN climate negotiations (*3)
at SBSTTA 16 (UNEP/CBD/SBSTTA/16/INF/30) should be well noted.
We feel SBSTTA should play critical role in identification of scientific and technical
needs on this topic and that recommendation should be well considered and accepted in
the CBD agreement.
Farmers from Fukushima participated in COP11 of CBD in October 2012 and made
such statement at Side event (see: Messages from Fukushima for the CBD/COP11) and
received lots of attention and sympathy from the audience.
We hope parties of CBD to take the appropriate decision for our sustainable future
based on full consideration on harmful effect of nuclear energy to biodiversity and all
life on earth. It is a very urgent, important agenda of people of our age to consider.
We need to protect life and the earth ecosystem for the future generations and
appropriate decision needs to be made now.
*1: “Consequences of nuclear accidents for biodiversity and ecosystem services”
Wehrden, H. v., Fischer, J., Brandt, P., Wagner, V., Kümmerer, K., Kuemmerle, T., Nagel, A.,
Olsson, O. and Hostert, P. (2012), Consequences of nuclear accidents for biodiversity and
ecosystem services. Conservation Letters, 5: 81–89. doi: 10.1111/j.1755-263X.2011.00217.x
Editor: Phil Levin, recommends the following points:
(1) fully incorporate risks for biodiversity and ecosystem services into policy debates;(2)
develop a coherent information chain regarding such risks; 3) use proactive planning strategies
to be prepared for potential accidents; and (4) develop a coherent research agenda on the
consequences of nuclear accidents for biodiversity and ecosystem services”
*2: “We challenge States to abandon false solutions to climate change that negatively impact
Indigenous Peoples‘ rights, lands, air, oceans, forests, territories and waters. These include
nuclear energy, large-scale dams, geo-engineering techniques, ―clean coalǁ‖, agro-fuels,
plantations, and market based mechanisms such as carbon trading, the Clean Development
Mechanism, and forest offsets”.
*3: For us in the Pacific, it is important to ensure that on top of being victims of the climate
crisis, we do not want to become guinea pigs for new unproven technologies or old hazardous
technologies such as nuclear power with the excuse that more technology is needed to fix the
climate. As one colleague said here in Copenhagen, “It is totally irresponsible that negotiators
are discussing the development and the transfer of technologies without any mechanisms to
filter which ones can be useful and which ones will create more problems for peoples and the
environment. We need immediately the inclusion and application of the precautionary principlev
on the issue of technology”.
* Other reference to identify the importance of addressing harmful effect of nuclear energy.
UN Special Rapporteur’s Press Statement
Press Release 12-058-E 26/11/2012
UN Special Rapporteur on the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable
standard of physical and mental health. Mr Anand Grover.
“It is regrettable to note that the local residents were not aware of disaster management plans in
the event of potential nuclear accident, in fact, local residents of Futaba city in Fukushima were
led to believe by the Safety Agreement signed in 1991 that the TEPCO plant was safe and there
would be no occasion for a nuclear accident.”
