The project aims to increase negotiating capacity for climate action by developing a skills-based skills-focused, mentorship-based training programme for young climate action advocates as well as establishing a community of practice for frontline climate action negotiators.
We are no longer accepting applications for the position of Programme Manager.
"Negotiating for Climate Change" pursues two core objectives:
to develop and implement a skills-focused, mentorship-based training programme for young climate action advocates; and
to establish a community of practice for frontline climate action negotiators, including the youth who have participated in the training programme.
Through this, we aspire to enhance the capacity of climate advocates and practitioners, ultimately driving tangible progress in mitigating and adapting to the challenges of climate change.
Negotiating for Climate Action:
Engaging Practitioners and Empowering Youth
The vast majority of action aimed at mitigating and adapting to climate change takes place on the ground in local communities by passionate and motivated actors. These frontline negotiators are responsible for engaging with stakeholders, marshalling resources, and implementing projects that have a direct impact on people’s health, livelihoods, and environment. This project aims to engage these practitioners in a community of practice to understand the challenges they face and the tools they use to overcome negotiation deadlocks. The project will share these insights with the next generation of climate advocates by developing and implementing a training programme that empowers youth with the tools they need to conceive, design, and negotiate for climate action projects focused on mitigation within their communities.
