The role of the Education Sector in South Asia: Empowering youth and children for climate change adaptation action, August 2020
TEP-A, the technical examination process of adaptation (TEP-A) was established under the 2015 Paris Agreement to promote enhanced adaptation actions. The technical expert meetings on adaptation (TEM-A) are core to this process. The topic TEP-A 2020 is ‘Education and training, public participation and youth to enhance adaptation action’. In the context of TEP-A 2020, the UNICEF Office for South Asia (ROSA) and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) organized a regional technical expert meeting titled ‘The role of the Education Sector in South Asia: Empowering Youth and Children for Climate Change Adaptation Action’. This was held virtually on 6 August 2020. Fumiyo Kagawa participated as one of six panellists and shared her ongoing UNICEF ROSA research exploring the relationship between climate change and education. The research falls under the February – October 2020 consultancy project that she currently leads.
