Our team is participating in a range of panels and side events at COP23, drawing on our decades of experience of working with climate-vulnerable communities to help shape the COP23 discussion and actions thereafter. 

These events include: 

  • Agroecology: Transforming the global food system and combating climate change
  • The pre-launch of a new book we have contributed to on loss and damage
  • Handling climate risk, and loss and damage
  • Integrating energy access into low carbon planning to build inclusive and climate resilient economic development
  • Where next for Loss and Damage? Working towards solutions for dealing with risks 'beyond adaptation'.

  • Integrating energy access into low carbon planning to build inclusive and climate resilient economic development

    Integrating energy access into low carbon planning to build inclusive and climate resilient economic development

    Decentralised renewable energy (DRE) can support the growth of resilient and inclusive local economies, as well as powering health and education services, and help to address entrenched challenges such as gender inequality and climate change. However financial investments don’t currently reflect this potential. This session, organised by the ACCESS network, explores what needs to change.
