CLIMATE CHANGE AND FORB: PROTECTING OUR ENVIRONMENT AND NEEDS OF ALL
February 24 at 8:00 am - 9:30 am EST
This Dialogue will provide parliamentarians, faith leaders and influencers and civil society actors space to look together at the relationship between FoRB and climate change. It will explore the role that each can play in ensuring that the needs of all unempowered groups are addressed and how these can be integrated into national (city, town and village-wide) climate adaptation and mitigation strategies. It will also explore the steps that need to be taken to address the existing discrimination against religious or belief communities that make them more susceptible to climate vulnerability.
This Dialogue is informed by an expert briefing paper on FoRB and Climate Change (SDG 13) produced by the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR) as part of the FoRBLN project, of which IPPFoRB and DIHR are consortium members. The consultation series is also supported by the African Parliamentarians Association for Human Rights (AfriPAHR), Religions for Peace and the #FaithforRights Initiative.
This Dialogue is intended in the first instance for parliamentarians and faith leaders from the 8 FoRBLN project countries (Bangladesh, the Gambia, Ghana, Malawi, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, and Uganda), but it will also be of interest to parliamentarians and faith and belief leaders from across Africa, Europe and South and Southeast Asia.
