GEAG co-organised a one-day workshop on Dec 28, 2017 titled ‘Consultation workshop for children-centric and climate-resilient WASH, Nutrition and Education in Uttar Pradesh’, in collaboration with Climate Action Network South Asia, UNICEF India and PHIA Foundation to gather inputs from state government line departments and civil society in the State to develop capacity-building modules for the audience in attendance.
Odisha is among the states in India that already are bearing the impacts of climate change in the form of heat waves, cyclones and crop failure from untimely rains. In the discourse and planning for climate action, often women and children are not adequately considered. UNICEF India has the mandate to support interventions in the first 59 months duration of a child’s life to help build a healthy nation.
Thanal recently co-organised a two-day training in collaboration with Suchitwa Mission, Institute of Climate Change Studies of Government of Kerala, Climate Action Network South Asia, PAN-India Network, UNICEF India and Phia Foundation. This training for line department and district planning officials was part of the “Climate Resilient Kerala” stakeholder events series started by Thanal in 2016.
