"De Barcelone à Copenhague : peut-on atteindre un accord équitable sur le climat pour l’après-2012 ? La parole aux pays d’Afrique, Amérique Latine et Asie"
The impacts of climate change are already seriously impacting on the environment and therefore societies that depend on natural resources, in particular the poorest and most vulnerable communities. In the face of such challenges, a collective conscience is growing for the need to integrate adaptation in development projects, in the management of ecosystems and in planning for increased access to energy services.
Bamako (Mali) - May 2008
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) organized a capacity building workshop to address climate change in West and Central Africa, in partnership with Climate Action Network France (CAN), ENDA (Environmental Development Action in the Third World), the Nicolas Hulot Foundation (FNH), with the support of the Italian Cooperation (DGCS). 40 stakeholders from 15 African countries, representing governments, NGOs, and research institutes exchanged their views on climate change policy and practice.
The Barcelona workshop aims to present the recommendations developed by IUCN members and partners in Africa, to discuss them with representatives from Asia and Latin America and with the audience. Regional positions will then be presented at the UNFCCC COP 14 in Poznan in December 2008. A series of regional workshops in Latin America, Asia and Africa in 2009 will further develop these regional positions, which will also be presented at the UNFCCC COP 15 in Copenhagen in December 2009.
