Climate Change and Green Innovation
We have one planet and we need to take care of it. The changes in climate patterns are impacting our lives. We’ve seen how droughts in different parts of the world have led to famine or soaring food prices. As we prepare for international conferences such as Rio+20, the sessions offered under this theme will give you an opportunity to:
- discuss various climate change challenges and influence the messages which will be presented at different climate change international conferences
- learn how different parts of the world have embraced innovative recycling methods and creating new employment opportunities
- learn about environmental friendly farming methods and climate smart agriculture
- acquaint yourself with indigenous traditions to predict climate patterns
Knowledge-sharing to develop effective national forest policy through participatory processes (64)
In this session participants will discuss the role of knowledge management and knowledge sharing in developing national forest policy and how this has led to good practices in developing policy. The session will cover 10 years of experience in more than 70 countries in supporting participation of stakeholders in policy development. Participants will learn that the quality of the participation is key. The lack of investment in developing participatory processes that engage local communities is an important factor in the current environmental crisis.
