UNDP is offering a series of online trainings to be conducted by the international climate change policy advisor Daniela Carrington in the period of March 11-30, 2021.

The project “Policy action for climate security in Central Asia”, funded by the UK Conflict Stability and Security Fund (CSSF), aims to enhance policy action for climate security in Central Asia through supporting more robust and coherent climate change action and increased public awareness. It focuses on Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan and is being implemented by UNDP Kyrgyzstan under close collaboration with the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO). The project aims to contribute to enhanced national climate change policies in order to meet these countries’ commitments under the Paris Agreement. Additionally, the project aims to reduce conflict, promote energy and food security, and increase stability and resilience to climate change risks by actively engaging national stakeholders.The project will also enable more efficient participation of Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan in the upcoming COP 26 and will lay the foundation for further successful implementation of the Paris Agreement.

In light of the extremely complex, high level political and technical nature of climate change negotiations, climate diplomacy plays a very important role serving as an interface between national interest debates and international cooperation. It is the process through which nation states – and increasingly non-governmental and sub-state actors – determine and work to reduce the risk of the changing climate and support the transformation of the economies towards low carbon and climate resilient development.

In order to prepare national delegates for these extremely complex international negotiations, and in particular during COP 26, UNDP is offering a series of online trainings to be conducted by the international climate change policy advisor Daniela Carrington in the period of March 11-30, 2021. Trainings are to be held twice a week for two hours through Zoom in English with translation provided in Russian language.
