The ACE Observatory aims to support and accelerate a whole-of-society approach to climate action. Once launched, it will be a unique platform providing much-needed tools to track and assess progress on people-centered climate action. Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE) provides some critical enablers for the competencies needed to achieve climate-just development. ACE is the foundational toolkit for improved climate governance and capacity building. It empowers society, fostering accountability and a shared sense of ownership. This event series kicks off our Global Panel on People-Centered Climate Action to define what effective ACE implementation means and co-design the performance criteria for the determinants of people-centered climate action dimensions: climate competencies, public participation, transparency & accountability, and feasibility.
This e-roundtable aims to provide a space for asynchronous contributions to the Climate Competencies discussion that will be held virtually on April 13. It seeks. to provide answers to questions such as: How do we define quality in training, action-oriented learning, and public awareness? What kinds of policies, strategies, and tools need to be in place to enable quality implementation? How can we ensure it actively integrates and includes diverse ways of knowing and relevant partnerships? If quality is achieved, what is the outcome and how do we measure success?
