Climate Change Provincial Stakeholder consultations commence

05 August 2015

 

The national Department of Environmental Affairs will host a series of stakeholder consultation workshops as part of South Africa’s preparation for the United Nations climate change talks in Paris, France later this year.  A consultation workshop will take place in each province and a national workshop will also be convened.

The purpose of the workshops is to formulate South Africa’s Intended National Determined Contribution (INDC) to be communicated to the UNFCCC Secretariat as a national contribution to the post 2020 global climate change agreement. The workshops are also aimed at soliciting inputs for the country’s COP21 negotiating position in Paris.

The first provincial stakeholder consultation workshop will take place in KwaZulu-Natal on Thursday, 6 August. The details are below:
