Apply to attend or speak at Paris Climate Change Agreement Signing
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has invited all world leaders to a signing ceremony on 22 April at UN Headquarters for the historic climate agreement that was reached in Paris in December last year. At the request of the Executive Office of the Secretary-General, UN-NGLS led a process for civil society to apply to attend or speak during the opening session of the signing ceremony. For the speaking role, the Executive Office of the Secretary-General sought applications from individuals in developing countries who could share a compelling story of a new innovation or solution (from social entrepreneurship to engineering to community action) that she/he has put into practice that is delivering tangible results on climate change mitigation or adaptation. Travel funding will be provided for this speaker.
The Executive Office of the Secretary-General has selected as the civil society speaker:
Ms. Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim
Association des Femmes Peules Autochtones du Tchad (AFPAT) - Chad
