ACE Workshop on Article 6 of the Convention (Doha Work Programme)

BONN, Germany (May 27, 2016) – Majandra Alejandra Rodriquez Acha, of WEDO, participated on behalf of the WGC in the ACE Workshop on Article 6 of the Convention (Doha Work Programme). Some of the issues the WGC highlighted included:

  • Ensure balance between all elements of Article 6 (we are leaving public participation and public access to information behind)
  • Civil society is already engaging in non-formal education, popular education, community education – how to connect in a way that makes this visible, that is respectful
  • Importance of gender mainstreaming in ensuring access to decision making, policy and education. Cannot adapt and mitigate climate change if 50% of population has obstacles to accessing participation and education
