On the road to COP26: Climate change action

The UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021. The COP26 summit will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

The Environmental Bamboo Foundation (EBF) is partnering with the Indonesian Ministry of Environment and Forestry for two key Indonesia Pavilion events in alignment with the main themes of Scaling-up Adaption; Keeping 1.5° C alive; Loss and Damage; Finalising the Paris Rulebook – Article 6; and Mobilising Finance. The Indonesia Pavilion will showcase real actions that are being and have been taken by Indonesia.

The two panels are Bamboo Partnerships for Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation and Women Saving The Planet: Gender Equality in the Fight for Climate Change. 

In the lead up to COP26, EBF has been holding a number of Instagram Live events, featuring Arief Rabik in conversation with friends and fellow activists, including Happy Salma on ‘Women on the frontlines of climate change‘, Sam Branson on ‘Fighting for a cause’, and Indonesia’s Minister for Education, Nadiem Makarim discussing ‘The role of education in climate change’.

Arief Rabik on the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration Advisory Board

Arief Rabik was appointed to the Advisory Board for the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. He is the only member from Indonesia, joining 22 other members from around the globe.

Against a backdrop of environmental crisis, the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration is a chance to revive the natural world that supports us all. A decade may sound like a long time. But it is these next ten years that scientists say will count most in the fight to avert climate change and the loss of millions of species. Here are ten actions in the strategy of the UN Decade that can build a #GenerationRestoration.

The Advisory Board is the main external body of the UN Decade’s governance structure, which includes representatives varying from indigenous peoples, local communities, ecosystem restoration experts, to media and culture workers, private sectors, etc.

The Board’s main objective is to offer relevant perspectives and schools of thought in response to the challenges for implementing the UN Decade, as well as inspire and amplify the UN Decade’s goals through diverse channels and networks.
