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.

During the morning session, participants had the opportunity to learn about the way climate justice debates are framed in the Asia-Pacific and how Asian civil society is mobilizing around these issues, and to look at how Canadian CSOs are supporting this mobilization.
The afternoon was a working session for APWG members that included a discussion on international negotiations on climate change and sustainable development and their influence on the production of biofuels in the Asia-Pacific. Maria Theresa Nera-Lauron of the Peoples’ Movement on Climate Change was the keynote speaker for this event. The audio recording of her presentation can be downloaded by following the link below.
