This event, supported by the Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA) and Accountability Lab, will mark the official launch for the Green Accountability Call for Proposals.
In this particular call, the GPSA is focusing on the critical challenge of our time: climate change. With a recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report emphasizing that we only have seven years left to take decisive action to stay below 1.5 degrees, the time to act is now. We need more and better climate action that reaches the communities most impacted by climate change. Climate action cannot succeed if it does not put citizens and local communities at the heart of the agenda.
This is why the GPSA is seeking to create an ecosystem for green accountability to merge the issues of social accountability and climate action. Green accountability creates systemic ways for people to have a voice and role in the climate decisions that most impact their lives. It places citizens and civil society at the heart of climate finance to direct funding, implement solutions, and hold decision-makers accountable for effective and equitable climate action.
Don’t miss the opportunity for an in-person and virtual discussion on the urgency of this call with experts from the fields of anti-corruption, climate and social accountability!
