Welcome to the e-discussion on "Youth meaningful participation as a turning point for climate action and NDC ambition”.
We need your unique insights and perspectives to make climate action more ambitious, and more youth-responsive and youth-driven. As the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and partners implement the Climate Promise, and support and advocate for more ambitious NDCs, there is growing consensus that a key success factor for raising climate ambition is ensuring an inclusive process that brings together government at all levels with youth organizations, movements, and networks, as well as with other citizens, private sector, and key stakeholders and partners. In particular, young people’s needs and aspirations should be captured in the NDCs and their role as positive agents of change should be better recognized, promoted and supported.
UNDP is making unprecedented efforts to support countries in developing more ambitious NDCs and UNDP’s Climate Promise is already supporting 112 countries. This online global e-discussion is brought to you by UNDP’s NDC Support Programme, supported by the European Union, Germany and Spain and UNDP’s Youth Global Programme for Sustainable Development and Peace, supported by Denmark and Italy, who are collaborating to develop the first guidance package for UNDP practitioners on Youth & NDCs, as part of the Climate Promise. This online global e-discussion is a key step to ensure that we collectively reflect on recent and ongoing promising practices and identify opportunities and powerful policy and programming recommendations with youth at the core.
The purpose of the e-discussion is to:
All respondents are welcome to join Rooms 1 - 2. Please keep in mind that Room 3 is specially designed for young participants.
We thank our moderators from the following organizations and networks: YOUNGO; the Office of the Secretary-General Envoy on Youth, Plant for Planet Nigeria, Klimaneustart, UNICEF, the Danish Youth Climate Council, Jovenes Peruanos frente al Cambio Climático, and UNDP.
