Global Climate Talks (COP 25): GII’s Engagement with stakeholders
The 25th Session of the Conference Parties (COP25) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was convened from the 2nd to 13th December 2019 at IFEMA in the beautiful city of Madrid in Spain. The conference was dubbed an action COP and attracted nearly 27,000 participants from the government, Intergovernmental Agencies, research institutions, NGOs and Civil society organizations.
The conference provided Parties with the opportunity to advance negotiations with the hope of finalizing the “Rule Book” which is an operating manual of the Paris Agreement needed for its smooth implementation taking effect from 2020. Key items to be completed include guidance on Cooperative approaches referred to as Article 6 paragraph 4 of the Paris Agreement, Common times frames referred in article 4 paragraph 10 and the transparency framework under article 13.
On the sidelines of the COP25 Greener Impact International hosted a series of activities including an exhibition to showcase its Climate action to the world. Over the past years, Greener Impact has through various platforms raised awareness and built capacities of young people, inspiring them to take climate action in their schools and local communities. A number of interventions have also been rolled out to enhance resilience and increase the adaptive capacities of both coastal and farming communities in Ghana, Togo, Mali and Nigeria.
At COP25 Greener Impact international also launched a call for partnership for the “3rd Ghana Youth Conference on Climate Change and Sustainable Development” a flagship program to program that provides a platform for learning, sharing of ideas and experiences among Ghanaian youth on issues related to climate change and sustainable development.
