The critical role of education to enhance climate action was recognized in the Article 6 of United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and Article 12 of the Paris Agreement, globally referred as Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE).
Doha Work Programme (DWP) an eight-year programme for Action for Climate Empowerment was adopted for the period 2012-2020, identifying six elements for achieving the ultimate objective of the Convention, UNFCCC.
The Doha Work programme is coming to an end next year and its final review will be carried out at COP 26 in 2020. UNFCCC is thus formulating a new work programme for ACE for the decade starting 2020 and inviting stakeholders to share recommendations and inputs.
