CAN-International, in partnership with WWF, Greenpeace and Presencia Ciudadana, and with support from the Danish 92 Group and the Heinrich Boell Foundation, hosts a preparatory meeting with developing country CAN members and partners ahead of COP16 in Cancun.
Our goal is to develop stronger capacities of key individuals within Climate Action Network’s southern regional and national networks on the issues of climate change policy and sustainable low carbon development pathways that are suited to local needs and recognize the imperative of south-south cooperation and deliberations in the run up to COP 16 in Cancun.
- Strengthen CAN South: (how Southern membership in CAN is integrated into the policy development and how CAN best serves the needs of the south, and outreach activities, weakness and opportunities in developing country nodes, strategy for strengthening southern input into CAN, strengthening the understanding of core issues for participants)
- Develop a Common Strategy towards Cancun from a Southern Perspective: (emerging political dynamics across key players within global polity, How to use the collective strength and perspectives in the group to influence the thinking in respective political space, Identifying concrete areas of collaboration amongst CAN and one another for the future.)
Timelines: Focus on COP-16 with a view to a medium term time frame for developing common tactics and strategy for collaboration and action beyond Cancun (2012).
