The Paris 2015 UN World Climate Change Conference (COP21) aims to reach a new international agreement to keep the global warming below two degrees.

– Today it is Forest Action Day; the first in a series of events under the Lima-Paris Action Agenda (LPAA), focussing on forest protection, landscape restoration, financing, the fight against deforestation and eliminating deforestation from agro-supply chains. The LPAA’s Action Days and thematic focus events are intended to showcase the amount of results already achieved in this particular action area; new individual and cooperative announcements and commitments from non-state and state actors; and what needs to be done in the coming years.

– Renowned photographers Inez & Vinoodh photographed 13 women who are in the front line of COP21, fighting to reach global agreements on climate change. Among those women are Achala Abeysinghe (Sri Lanka), who is the legal adviser on climate change negotiations to the Chair of the Least Developed Countries, a group of the poorest nations that is in a vulnerable position during the climate summit; and Priscilla Achakpa (Nigeria), an environmental activist and executive director of the Women Environmental Program, that introduces thousands of woman to sustainable solutions to everyday problems.

– Today the Climate Generations areas opened to the general public and will be accessible free of charge at the COP21 Conference Centre until 11 December. So if you are in Paris and interested in the views of civil society in all its diversity, visit the various debates en conferences held in Climate Generations areas. The activities of today are all about Forest and Agriculture in relation to global climate change and tomorrow will be about Research and Water.
