    Proposed initiatives at COP21:

    - develop a joint statement to call for support around adaptation (technology transfer, additional public finance for adapation, strong CSO role in adaptaiton, recognition of local knowledge in adaptation planning,  meaningful participation of CSOs and farmers in adaptation plan and policy design and implementation, etc.)

    - one or two joint activities with other global networks in particular ACT Alliance

  • Hi every body,
    Greeting from Vietnam!
    We have just organized a regional workshop on climate change: the road to COP 21 last week, with the participants from CCCN & NGO Forum Cambodia. It was quite successful with some main point for a common position toward this COP. Some volunteers agreed to commit to finish this in the coming weeks. Will share with you once we got it.
    Moreover, we have also produced a position paper toward COP 21 and launched successfully at French Institute in Hanoi from September.
    We will have around 6 representatives will attend COP 21 in Paris with accreditation. It will be great to meet you all soon.
