Southern Engagement With Climate Negotiations
And Commitments 2020-2023
Impulsouth is an alliance of organizations working collaboratively to increase knowledge and capacities on climate action in developing countries.
The initiative aims to promote south-south cooperation to strengthen the southern engagements with the Paris Agreement in a way that is reflected at the 2023 Global Stocktake.
Impulsouth focuses its action in six countries – Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Madagascar, Niger, Uganda and Zambia – and pursues to strengthen the role played by young climate leaders through research, training and innovation.
Therefore, Impulsouth is supporting country research around climate change, is building capacity through a virtual training course for young climate professionals and is launching a solutions lab to tackle key climate challenges in each of the countries.
Impulsouth implements cross-country research about climate knowledge and capacity needs in Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Madagascar, Niger, Uganda and Zambia. For this purpose, it supports national institutions and master students with research grants. By encouraging the use of similar research methodologies, Impulsouth is enabling countries to share best practices and learn from each other’s success and challenges.
Impulsouth aims to equip young climate leaders with skills and capacities to develop, implement and report progress on national climate action. It offers a six month certified online course for 84 young climate professionals from the public, private and civil society sectors in Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Madagascar, Niger, Uganda and Zambia. By the end of the course, participants will propose a climate initiative, eligible for being supported technically and financially on Impusouth’s Solutions Lab.
