Haiti - Environment : Roundtable on Climate Change
The roundtable is organized by the regional office of the International Organization of the Francophonie just a few days of the 21th Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change of 2015 (COP21) to be held in Paris, from 30 November to 11 December 2015.
Remember that this 21th conference is a major challenge for countries which should lead to a new international climate agreement, applicable to all countries, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2°C. In preparation for COP21, each country is called to communicate its contribution on the efforts they intend to commit to reduce its emissions of greenhouse gases.
Haiti like other Countries Less Advanced (LDCs) is one of the most vulnerable to climate change, while it is one of the countries that contributes the least to global warming.
Experts from Canada-Quebec, Burkina Faso, Egypt and Haiti, mobilized by the International Organization of the Francophonie and the Francophone Institute for Sustainable Development (IFDD) will intervene in this round table moderated by Michèle Duvivier Pierre-Louis, President of the FOKAL.
