Representing Grassroots Voices at COP17 Durban

In our last post we explained the basics of COP17. Here’s what Global Greengrants Fund is doing to support grassroots voices that are excluded from high level discussions:

Several members of Global Greengrants Fund Regional and Global Advisory Boards will be attending COP17.

Prior to the event, Bobby Peek, our Southern Africa Advisor, organized an event called, “The Dirty Energy Week – Challenging Climate Gangsters.” The gathering was meant to build solidarity among environmental activists and expose and challenge false energy solutions.  Several other Global Greengrants Fund advisors and grantees attended the pre-COP17 event.  Nnimmo Bassey, Global Greengrants Fund Board Member and Regional Advisor, opened the event with a keynote address, commenting on the climate crisis in Africa.

 

Global Greengrants Fund has also given several grants for organizations to participate in the COP17 events:

  • Zimbabwe Coalition on Debt and Development received a $5,000 grant to participate in climate change platforms and projects, including attending COP17 in Durban.
  • The Center for Environmental Justice in Sri Lanka used a $3,000 grant to send a representative to COP17. The representative will share the results of a the organization’s study on climate financing.
