Upcoming webinar on Climate Change, Humanitarian Response and Loss and Damage Finance 

Join PHAP and ICVA for an upcoming event on how climate loss and damage financing works in relation to humanitarian response

On 6 July, join us for an event organized by PHAP together with the International Council of Voluntary Agencies (ICVA) on how climate finance and humanitarian response can better work together to respond to climate-related emergencies. Together with an expert panel, we'll be looking in more detail at how climate loss and damage financing works in relation to humanitarian response, what the two sectors can learn from each other, and what lessons we can already draw from existing coordination efforts.

While both climate finance and humanitarian response aim to address the negative effects of climate change, they have different mechanisms and distinct forms of financing, resulting in poor coordination. Improving coordination between these two sectors is needed to help close the considerable funding gaps that exist for countries most affected by climate change.

If you would like to learn more about climate change and humanitarian response, you can explore past events from ICVA's and PHAP's Learning Stream on Climate Change and Humanitarian Action.  The first was a launch event of the series that introduced the Climate and environment Charter, the first session of the webinar examined adapting to the impacts of the climate and environmental crises; the second session on maximizing the environmental sustainability of humanitarian work; the third session on practical tools and initiatives for reducing environmental impact in humanitarian action; the fourth session on embracing the leadership of local actors and communities in climate action; the fifth session on understanding and integrating climate and environment risk data in humanitarian action; the sixth session on the Road to COP27: Strengthening humanitarian perspectives; and the seventh session on climate change ‘Loss and Damage’ and links to humanitarian action

This webinar is free to attend.
