Global Voices is one of the blogs invited to attend the United Nations High Level Event on Climate Change in New York, Monday September 24th.
I am honored to be representing GV at the conference, and will be attending the sessions.
– Thematic Plenary I – Adaptation – From Vulnerability to Resilience 10am – 1pm
– “Global Voices on climate Change” 1:15pm – 2:45pm – Hosted by Kenya, Indonesia, Poland and Denmark.
– Thematic Plenary Afternoon – Adaptation.
The rationale behind attending these particular sessions is that, earlier this year, the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report that mentioned that climate change will likely have a ‘graver effect’ on Africa. I am hoping the session gives us some more information about adaptation initiatives that can help Africa deal with climate change.
The other sessions going on are listed here. Boing Boing will also be live blogging the event. The site ‘Live from the UN’ will contain links to all the posts about the event and you can also watch the sessions online at the UN website.
