Latin America

NGO Consultations- LATAM - Climate and Environment Charter for Humanitarian Organisations

Meeting to provide feedback on the First Draft of the Climate and Environment Charter for Humanitarian Organisations in English, French, Arabic and Spanish. 


ICVA is part of the Advisory Committee to draft the Climate and Environment Charter. The Advisory Committee  includes a number of humanitarian and climate actors (UN, civil society, academics, Red Cross Red Crescent Movement) led by the ICRC and the IFRC and is working together to develop a series of short and clear commitments that could guide our efforts as humanitarians in relation to limiting the impacts of climate change and environmental degradation on communities and reducing our own footprint. 

This is linked to a pledge on “Strengthening the resilience of communities to climate change and environmental degradation through climate-smart humanitarian action”, made at the 33rd International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent by the IFRC and the ICRC. The pledge is about leading a consultative process to develop a new, succinct, accessible and aspirational Climate and Environment Charter in 2021 that will be made available to the wider humanitarian sector for adoption in the spirit of the Code of Conduct of 1994. 


Online consultations: A series of  regional consultations have been organised  to collect feedback from members on the draft Charter

This humanitarian briefing event will present new research findings from World Vision on how the Venezuelan crisis is affecting children's rights and protection, alongside regional analysis presented by Plan International on the specific impact for girls. Most importantly, this event will provide a platform to hear directly from Venezuelan adolescent girls and young women themselves - their experiences, how the crisis and COVID-19 pandemic has impacted their lives, and what actions they recommend to leaders for change.
