The critical role of education to enhance climate action was recognized in the Article 6 of United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and Article 12 of the Paris Agreement, globally referred as Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE).
During the past 8 years the so-called Doha Work Programme (DWP) an Action for Climate Empowerment was adopted for the period 2012-2020, identifying six elements for achieving the ultimate objective of the Convention, these are education, training, public awareness, public participation, public access to information, and international cooperation.
The Doha Work programme is coming to an end in 2020 and its final review will be carried out at COP 26 in 2020. UNFCCC is thus formulating a new work programme for ACE for the next decade and inviting stakeholders to share recommendations and inputs.
UNFCC invites civil society organizations, experts, agencies and stakeholders from all over the world to contribute towards making a joint submission to UNFCCC.
Deadline for contributions: 15 February 2020
