    Tout ce que vous devez savoir sur les changements climatiques au même endroit

    Le Secrétaire général des Nations Unies, Ban Ki-moon, a déclaré que le changement climatique est « le plus grand défi de notre époque », et ses effets se font déjà ressentir dans un grand nombre de pays. En même temps, il est toujours difficile pour de nombreuses personnes qui ne travaillent pas directement sur le sujet de comprendre les éléments de base des changements climatiques. Par exemple, quels sont les gaz qui contribuent réellement à générer de l’effet de serre ? Quel changement de température est projeté au cours du siècle ? Comment fonctionnent les négociations internationales en matière de changements climatiques ? Quelles sont les mesures d’adaptation et d’atténuation disponibles et comment choisir les meilleures d’entre elles ? D’où le financement provient-il ?

    Cette formation en ligne gratuite a été conçue dans le but d’apporter des réponses à ces questions, ainsi qu’à d’autres questions essentielles sur les changements climatiques.

    Le cours est divisé en 6 modules :

    1. Science des changements climatiques
    2. Cadre juridique et politique international pour faire face aux changements climatiques
    3. Adaptation aux changements climatiques
    4. Atténuation des changements climatiques
    5. Financement dans le domaine des changements climatiques
    6. Planification en matière de changements climatiques

    Il faut compter environ deux heures pour compléter chaque module, et chacun est articulé autour de 4 objectifs d’apprentissage. Leur atteinte sera évaluée à la fin de chaque module à l’aide d’un quiz. Une fois que les six modules seront complétés, vous recevrez un certificat. Les modules sont indépendants et peuvent être étudiés dans n’importe quel ordre ; cependant, il est indispensable de les suivre tous pour recevoir un certificat final.

    Il est également possible de télécharger tous les modules en présentation PowerPoint pour pouvoir étudier en hors-ligne ou pour s’entraîner. Les modules contiennent aussi un grand nombre de liens vers d’autres données sur les changements climatiques et constituent ainsi une passerelle vers des informations plus détaillées et plus précises.

    Les modules qui composent le cours ont été élaborés et révisés par UN CC:Learn, un partenariat de 33 organisations multilatérales qui soutiennent les Etats membres dans la conception et la mise en œuvre d’enseignements durables fondés sur les résultats pour faire face aux changements climatiques (www.uncclearn.org).

    The humanitarian system is under intense pressure. The number of people affected by crises is increasing at a faster rate than resources are being provided to meet the needs. Humanitarian partners need to look at more efficient and effective ways to make limited humanitarian aid budgets go further. It has been demonstrated in many contexts that giving aid directly in the form of cash is both an effective and efficient way to maximise the impact of humanitarian assistance, but a recent multi-partner study identified that only 6% of total humanitarian spending goes on cash.

    The use of cash in humanitarian response has many benefits: it maintains dignity and provides affected people with the ability to prioritise their own needs; it stimulates local economies; it gets assistance to people rapidly; and it reduces the overheads involved in delivering relief items.

    This webinar looks at the mechanisms and modalities of cash assistance, with a particular focus on how cash was planned and implemented following the Ghorka earthquake in Nepal, and summarises the use of cash in humanitarian crises. It also introduces discussions on the possibilities for expanding the role of cash assistance in the future.

    TRANSFORMATIVE AGENDA WEBINAR SERIES

    The Senior Transformative Agenda Implementation Team (STAIT)

    is pleased to invite you to a

    90-minute webinar on

    Humanity, Neutrality, Impartiality, and Independence

    Are these principles applied in today’s humanitarian operations?

    Perspectives from the field

    This webinar is the second of a two-part series on the field-level implementation of principled humanitarian action, co-organised by the Norwegian Refugee Council, Handicap International, the Senior Transformative Agenda Implementation Team (STAIT), and PHAP. The first webinar took place on 8 October 2015, facilitated by PHAP.

    On Thursday 22 October at:

    10:00 GVA**time and**15:00 GVA time

    Although there is wide-spread adherence to the key humanitarian principles, the reality does not always make it easy to respond to all persons in need; sometimes because of physical, natural barriers, sometimes because of lack of access for security reasons. How do humanitarian actors operate in the face of dilemmas such as the politicization and conditionality of aid; or when political and military interests override humanitarian considerations? How creative can humanitarian actors be in overcoming these dilemmas while still applying the principles of humanitarian action? And what is the importance of strategic decision-making based on context analysis and strong leadership in such situations?

    In this 90-minute session, the webinar will build on the earlier discussion (previous webinar) and examine how the humanitarian principles are applied at the field level in today’s complex operations. The webinar will share best practices, discuss challenges, and look at how respecting humanitarian principles enhances the effectiveness and efficiency of the humanitarian response.

    The panelists are:

    Mr. Mark Bowden, Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary General - Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Afghanistan

    Mark Bowden has served as the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General, Resident Coordinator (RC), Humanitarian Coordinator (HC), and UNDP Resident Representative (RR) in Afghanistan since November 2012.

From 2001 to 2005 Mr. Bowden was extensively involved in the design of humanitarian reforms as the Chief of the Policy Development and Studies Branch in the OCHA. From 1999 to 2001 he was the Conflict Management Adviser for Africa in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office of United Kingdom. Earlier in his career, Mr. Bowden worked for the Save the Children Fund as the Head of Regional Office for East Africa, Africa Director and Country Director in Bangladesh.

    Balthasar Staehelin,**Deputy Director-General at the International Committee of the Red Cross**

    Balthasar Staehelin joined the ICRC in 1993 and has served in the Middle East, Africa, the Balkans and at headquarters. From 2002 to 2006, he was delegate-general for the Middle East and North Africa, overseeing all ICRC work in that region, including the operation in Iraq. He served as Deputy-Director of operations for policy and global affairs from 2006 to 2008. In 2008, he left the ICRC to join the local government in Geneva where he ran the department in charge of providing social welfare, housing, health and integration programmes for asylum-seekers and refugees. He returned to the ICRC in August 2012 to take up his current position.

    What is the STAIT?

    The IASC Emergency Directors Group established the Senior Transformative Agenda Implementation Team (STAIT) to support them in rolling-out the IASC Transformative Agenda at field-level. The STAIT seeks to improve understanding and knowledge of the Transformative Agenda and its related toolbox of protocols at field level, as well as to strengthen practical, “tailor-made” application of the protocols in specific humanitarian contexts. The STAIT team includes senior UN and NGO colleagues with extensive experience in humanitarian operations, ready to share good practice and provide peer support.

    We hope you can join us next Thursday!

    Panos Moumtzis

    Director, IASC Senior Transformative Agenda Implementation Team

    UNDP, ICCAD, IIED, UN, NDC partnership, LEG come together for Capacity Building Day

    About this Event

    Capacity-Building for developing countries is crucially important to the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and therefore achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement. The Agreement has elevated the importance of capacity-building to new heights by enshrining two separate Articles on the issue (Article 11 and Article 13).The need to transition to a low emissions pathway and deal with the impacts of climate change will increase as we move from one generation to the next. Capacity-building, a means for implementing climate resilient (adaptation) and low emissions (mitigation) strategies will therefore need to be designed to sustain in the long‐term as well. The Second Annual Capacity-Building Day 2018 to be organized as a side event during COP24 will bring together diverse communities of practice to have in-depth discussions on building national capacity to implement low emissions and climate resilient development strategies.
