SLYCAN Trust’s work programme on climate change adaptation and loss and damage (L&D) focuses on addressing climate-induced L&D through evidence-based policy and action under the UNFCCC process, with a special focus on climate-related human mobility, non-economic or cultural L&D, and resilience-building. The programme focuses on building the technical capacities of key stakeholders to better engage in the UNFCCC processes, the development of evidence-based products, and to enhance the cross-regional collaboration to facilitate inclusive and participatory processes related to adaptation and L&D under the UNFCCC and amplify the voices of developing country stakeholders in key decision-making processes.
In preparation for the United Nations Climate Change Conference taking place in Bonn, Germany in the month of June, SLYCAN Trust will be hosting an exhibition on climate-induced loss and damage in Asia and Africa. The exhibition documents how climate change impacts countries across Asia and Africa; not only economically, but also culturally. Beyond storms, droughts, and floods, it also highlights the long term impacts on their livelihoods and ecosystems.
The opening of the gallery will take place on the 6th of June from 6.00 to 9.45pm at The Stage Gallery, Bonn.
