The Peoples' Protocol on Climate Change (PPCC) aims to involve the grassroots sectors in the climate change discourse by developing their capacities for engagement and action. It also aims to pressure governments and international bodies to put the people's perpectives and aspiration on the negotiating table in drawing up a post-2012 climate change framework.
The people are the worst affected and yet are the least empowered. It is urgent, more than ever, for the people to unite and create their own spaces to raise their own concerns and issues on climate change.

In the context of international negotiations at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (in Durban, November 2011), and at Rio+20 (in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, June 2012), three international speakers from Asia, Africa and Latin America provided a general overview of peoples’ responses in the South to climate change and upcoming negotiations. The presentation of Maria Theresa Nera-Lauron, the coordinator of the People’s Movement on Climate Change (PMCC), based in the Philippines, can be downloaded below.
