About WAFA Youth Climate Award

The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), released in 2018, calls for a 50% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030 and net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. This is the minimum needed to prevent global temperatures rising above 1.5 °C over pre-industrial levels. This is also the biggest challenge humanity has ever faced.

 

In response, WAFA is strengthening its engagements in the global communities to support climate change initiatives. The 2020 WAFA Youth Climate Award will focus on youth under 25 from the global South who are working for sustainable development while keeping fossil fuels in the ground. The Award will target projects that can be shared across the planet for replication. WAFA will also publicize the awarded projects for potential investments for required scale up in specific geographic locations globally.

WAFA is working on proposing to COP26 Team to honor the winners at a WAFA Youth Climate Award Event as part of the Glasgow COP26 in late 2020. The event will be livestreamed to a global audience.
