Created in the aftermath of COP21 with the idea that multi-stakeholder dialogue and the valorisation of actions by non-state actors, particularly in a territorial approach, are essential to support the States, Climate Chance Association intends to beef up international discussions on the different agendas of development and climate and in particular the implementation of the Paris Agreement.
Climate Chance is the World Summit of Non-State Actors of Climate. It assesses the progress of concrete actions implemented by non-state actors (LGMA / YOUNGO / ENGO / BINGO / RINGO / IPO / Women & Gender / FARMER / TUNGO) on an annual basis to combat climate change. It also helps to strengthen their common expression for the upcoming COP conference.
The target groups are non-state actors as defined by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), namely:
– LGMA, representing the governments and local municipal authorities,
– YOUNGO, representing youth NGOs,
– ENGO, representing environmental NGOs,
– BINGO, representing companies and industry,
– RINGO, representing research and independent NGOs,
– IPO, representing organizations of indigenous peoples,
– WOMEN & GENDER, representing women and gender,
– FARMERS, representing farmers’ and agricultural NGOs
– TUNGO, representing union NGOs.
This second edition is organized by Souss Massa Region (Agadir – Morocco) and the Climate Chance Association (Paris-France). It will be an opportunity to put a special emphasis on the challenges of the African continent and the countries of the South more generally.
The Summit seeks to provide space for exchange and debate in order to assess the climate action of non-state actors, with 5 plenaries, 5 high-level debates, 14 focus, 17 forums and between 40 and 80 workshops; the number of participants expected for this second edition hover around 3000 participants.
