Background

 
In response to the increasing impact of climate change on development and security issues, a growing number of United Nations organizations work closely with governments to lay the ground for building green and climate-resilient societies. In 2012, FAO, UNEP, UNESCO, UNFCCC, UNICEF, UNITAR and WMO convened in Doha at COP 18/CMP 8 to launch the Alliance with a view to promoting meaningful, result-oriented and effective international cooperation in support of the action on climate change education, training, public awareness, public participation and access to information on climate change.
 

Objectives

 

The objectives of the Alliance are to:

  • maximize synergies and coherence of activities, avoid duplication of effort and utilize available expertise and resources in an efficient manner through enhanced coordination;
  • support Parties to the UNFCCC in their efforts to design, initiate and undertake activities related to climate change education, training, public awareness, public participation and public access to information;
  • establish a clear link between the work of the member organizations and the UNFCCC process.
