CLIMATE CHANGE  and the COP

The GEI Academy Delegation to COP

We have had  our own delegation to  United Nations COP  Climate Conference.

Nominations will be open shortly  and we will be sending them to the UNFCC for our delegation and we will shortly know who has been authorised to attend.

We will be pressing for a solution to be found and a global agreement.

We want to have 2 tonnes of carbon per person ideally in the not too distant future to try to roll back the tide of climate change, warming and sea level rise.

Please email greeneconomics info@geiacademy.org and we will issue more details shortly

Report -9th December 2014

Main challenges to address climate change

A) the climate finance challenge. Private actors should be the main actors of the investment process while the governments lead the negotiations.

B) the educational challenge both between children and young people. Professionals should improve learning and teaching for environment and disasters risk reduction.

C) the investment challenge for promoting a low carbon economy. The problem is not the access to technology but settig te right policy goals as it seems to be a lack of articulation between the ministry of environment and the ministry of economy and finance at the national level.

The general impression is that the climate challenges rely on the lack of articulation between governments and the private sector in order to promote changes in investment patterns and education towards a green economy.Report by Professor Maria Madi in Lima Peru at Cop 20.
