Dialogues on Action for Climate Empowerment

COP 18 adopted the pdf-icon Doha work programme on Article 6 of the Convention and requested the SBI to organize an annual in-session Dialogue on Article 6 to enhance work in this area. In doing so, the COP reaffirmed the importance of climate change education, training, public awareness, public participation, public access to information and international cooperation on these matters to achieve the ultimate objective of the Convention, and for the effective implementation of adaptation and mitigation actions.

The COP further decided that the dialogue will cluster the six elements of Article 6 of the Convention (education, training, public awareness, public participation, public access to information and international cooperation) into two focal areas that will be considered alternately on an annual basis. The first area will consist of education and training, and the second will consist of public access to information, public participation and public awareness. International cooperation will be a cross-cutting theme of both focal areas.

The Dialogues provide a regular forum to Parties and other stakeholders to share their experiences, exchange ideas, good practices and lessons learned regarding the implementation of Article 6 of the Convention.
