Upcoming Webinar on Adapting to the impacts of the climate and environmental crises
Join ICVA and PHAP for Session 1 in the Learning Stream on Climate Change and Humanitarian Action that introduced the Charter
On 14 October, join PHAP together with the International Council of Voluntary Agencies (ICVA) as we examine Commitment #1 of the Climate and Environment Charter which calls on us to “Step up our response to growing humanitarian needs and help people to adapt to impacts of the climate and environmental crises.” It focuses on how we use climate change adaptation (CCA), disaster risk reduction (DDR), and anticipatory action in our programming adapt our programs to better support and strengthen people’s resilience to current and future climate and environmental risks.
We are already witnessing how climate and environmental crises disproportionately impact communities in vulnerable contexts and situations, and regardless of what we do, these impacts will not disappear overnight. Many NGOs are already working to address climate change in and alongside vulnerable communities and to help organizations live up to their commitment, there are tools and resources available to guide NGOs in their work.
This webinar will aim to share lessons learned on the below questions:
- How can NGO programming be fit for purpose, ensure that they are designed and implemented to address current impacts and help reduce future risks?
- How can we scale-up climate-smart disaster risk reduction efforts and identify locally appropriate solutions to address them?
- What are some of the tools and resources available in terms of CCA, DDR and anticipatory action?
- What can we learn from local, traditional, and indigenous knowledge which can be replicated in other contexts?
This session follows the first event in the Learning Stream on Climate Change and Humanitarian Action that introduced the Charter. Learn more about this on the event page.
This webinar is free to attend.
