Youth Congress Exhibit and Microgrant Initiative

Habitat for Humanity “Youth Congress” is open for registration.

Young people disproportionately bear the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. They face the risk of eviction and long-term inability to afford a decent place to live, disruptions in schooling and employment, and the rising occurrence of abuse and violence (International Labour Organization, 2020). Even then, the youth have defied expectations and came out stronger as volunteers and as champions of sustainable development. As the Asia-Pacific Housing Forum gathers sector players, it is critical that spaces are designed for the youth to harness their creativity and innovation to help reshape inclusive housing.

CCWG and CANSEA joint Position Paper on Climate Finance for Adaptation

Background
The latest IPCC report and the increased focus on locally led adaptation highlights the importance of providing support to the most vulnerable communities and locations at subnational levels. This is in stark contrast to the realities of current international climate finance flows. Less than 10 percent of international adaptation finance, between 2003 and 2016, was approved for locally focused climate change projects (Soanes et al., 2019). The current climate finance mechanisms must be revisited to ensure that finance is received by those who need it the most and that interventions are supported by organisations with in-depth understanding of the local context for implementation, namely Civil Society Organisations (CSOs).
