Upcoming Introductory webinar in the Learning Stream on Climate Change and Humanitarian Action
Join ICVA and PHAP for the launch of our new learning stream on Climate Change and Humanitarian Action
On 30 September, ICVA and PHAP will launch the Learning Stream on Climate Change and Humanitarian Action starting with an introductory webinar looking at the recently launched Climate and Environment Charter for Humanitarian Organisations. The Charter sends a clear signal that humanitarian organizations have a key role to play in addressing crises faced by communities due to the climate and environmental crises. We must be a part of the solution by helping people adapt to a changing climate and environment, while also increasing our own environmental sustainability. This needs to be a collective endeavor, as it is clear that no organization can tackle this alone. The Charter intends to guide humanitarian action in the face of these crises and their humanitarian consequences.
This webinar will help introduce the Charter, which will serve as an important reference point for the rest of the learning stream. The questions we will look at in this webinar include:
• Why the Charter is needed now?
• What the commitments imply and the resources available?
• How NGOs can sign the Charter and what their signature means?
• What are the next steps to support organisations in implementing the Charter and to monitor progress?
This webinar is free to attend.
