2️⃣ Breakout Workshops: Dive deep into one of the three Climate Action Partnerships outlined below, and explore your organization’s potential role.
Climate Action Partnerships: Solar-Electric Cooking (SOLCO)
Transition 250,000 households in refugee-hosting contexts from biomass to solar electric cooking. SOLCO is part of the GeCCo - Global Electric Cooking Coalition launching at #COP28.
Waste Management (FairRecycling)
Develop self-sustaining business models for circular waste management in displacement settings. The aim is to provide millions of households in refugee-hosting areas with access to improved waste management while creating green jobs.
Scale up reforestation efforts in refugee-hosting areas through innovative financing and self-sustainable business models.
