Have we forgotten how to learn? Could have we reached a legally binding agreement years ago? Perhaps, even in time to stop global warming at 1oC. But we didn’t. Why? Maybe we need to be better at learning from the past.
Different ACT Climate Ambassadors will be present at COP21 to have meetings with delegation leaders and several state delegations have ACT Alliance participation. We highlight 4 events ACT Alliance is involved at COP21.
The Joint Initiative for Advocacy in Disaster Risk Reduction in Madagascar, ICPM (Initiative Commune de Plaidoyer pour la Réduction des Risques des Catastrophes à Madagascar), along with the Madagascar delegation will be running and contributing to many events during the COP21, including a side event on REDD+ at the interface of biodiversity, climate change and human right; a side event on Incentivized, participatory approach to mangrove conservation in Madagascar; and a stand on Innovative experiences against climate change in Africa. See the full schedule inside.
Children are vulnerable to climate change, but they are also agents of positive change. Children have a right to be heard, their voices are important in all decisions concerning our climate, and their future. The side event will explore the unique capacity children have to create change.
ACCRA is organising many events at COP21. We highlight two: “Success of Climate and Development - Adaptation in LDCs” & “Our Futures: young people’s experience of climate change impacts and solutions”.
