UNITED NATIONS ASSOCIATION OF AUSTRALIA

CLIMATE COLLABORATION FORUM AND CLIMATE ACTION AWARDS

 

About the awards

The 2015 UN Paris Climate Agreement requires states to progressively “mobilise stronger and more ambitious action by all stakeholders, including civil society, the private sector, cities and subnational authorities, local governments and indigenous peoples”.

In response to this call, the United Nations Association of Australia is promoting the development of a national, inclusive climate management framework.

To coincide with World Environment Day 2017, the UNAA held a national Climate Collaboration Forum – a full day event which included:

  • - presenting the 2017 World Environment Day Climate Action Awards
  • - showcasing the best of current climate management
  • - workshop discussions on the collaboration needed to achieve net zero

This event was a key feature of the UNAA's work to promote the implementation of SDG 13 - Climate Action.
