Regional Climate Weeks inspire individuals and organizations to become part of the momentum created by the global climate agreement in Paris. It is a unique collaborative platform where both government and non-Party stakeholders gather to address the gamut of relevant climate issues under one umbrella. Bringing together diverse stakeholders in the public and private sectors around a common goal of addressing climate change, is the main goal of the Regional Climate Weeks.
The Weeks comprise a series of events that provide space for a grassroots exchange of knowledge and best practices across the region on: Nationally Determined Contribution implementation, UN Sustainable Development Goals, and Global Climate Action.
Every year the Regional Climate Weeks are held in the following regions: Africa, Latin-America and Caribbean, and Asia-Pacific.
It is a unique initiative that aims to raise awareness and support members of our society in developing countries at the regional level to achieve global climate neutrality by mid-century.
This year, the Regional Climate Weeks serve as critical stepping stones to UN Secretary-General António Guterres’ UN Climate Summit 2019 in September.
