Advocacy

The Inter­gov­ern­men­tal Panel on Cli­mate Change high­lights the need for urgent and com­pre­hen­sive action to avoid cat­a­strophic con­se­quences of global warm­ing. Yet cur­rent efforts of gov­ern­ments to remain below the 2 degrees thresh­old have been hes­i­tant and over­all, insuf­fi­cient — dra­mat­i­cally increas­ing future adap­ta­tion and mit­i­ga­tion costs.

Inte­grate Cli­mate aims to empower cli­mate vul­ner­a­ble com­mu­ni­ties to influ­ence deci­sions on cli­mate mit­i­ga­tion and adap­ta­tion at local, national and inter­na­tional lev­els.

Despite already suf­fer­ing extreme cli­mate impacts, the world’s poor­est and most vul­ner­a­ble pop­u­la­tions con­tinue to face sig­nif­i­cant chal­lenges in engag­ing in cli­mate change negotiations.

Inte­grate Cli­mate aims to empower cli­mate vul­ner­a­ble com­mu­ni­ties to influ­ence deci­sions on cli­mate mit­i­ga­tion and adap­ta­tion at local, national and inter­na­tional lev­els. Com­bin­ing aware­ness rais­ing, social mobil­i­sa­tion and polit­i­cal advo­cacy, we seek to enhance gov­ern­ment account­abil­ity to global cli­mate agree­ments, and advance national poli­cies and action that place vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple at the cen­tre of cli­mate change responses.
