The Canadian Coalition on Climate Change and Development in collaboration with the Canadian Council for International Co-operation’s Africa Canada Forum and Asia Pacific Working Group, and the Canadian Food Security Policy Group organized a public forum at the University of Ottawa on September 26, 2011 on the topic of Farming, Forests and Fuel – Southern Perspectives 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.
