NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET) has opened a new open, online webinar series: Earth Observations for Humanitarian Applications. Refugees, internally displaced people (IDPs), and other displaced populations are made more vulnerable to climate change impacts due to their socio-political marginalization. This three-part, intermediate training presents concrete strategies for mapping localized climate conditions with risks faced by refugee and IDP communities around the world.

The training will focus on flood risk assessments and specific challenges for assessing flood risk in refugee and IDP camps; gauging long-term heat stress in refugee camps and the challenges with decision making surrounding heat risk; and monitoring drought effects on agricultural landscapes in refugee settings using Earth observations (EO) to explore the correlations between anomalies in crop productivity and weather-based factors

The aim of this event is increasing public understanding of the links between climate change, disasters, and land tenure rights, and bringing land tenure issues in the climate change discourse, listening particularly to the voices of civil society and youth. The discussion is also expected to bring forth some ideas for action both for the new GFAR Collective Action on land tenure and climate change, and for policy makers.

O Greenpeace chegou ao Brasil no mesmo ano em que o país abrigou a primeira e mais importante conferência ambiental da História, a Eco-92.


O protesto que marca a fundação da organização por aqui foi uma ação contra a usina nuclear de Angra. Chegando por mar, ao bordo do navio Rainbow Warrior, os ativistas fixaram 800 cruzes no pátio da usina, simbolizando o número de mortos no acidente de Chernobyl.


Imazon (Imazon)

O Imazon é um instituto de pesquisa cuja missão é promover o desenvolvimento sustentável na Amazônia por meio de estudos, apoio à formulação de políticas públicas, disseminação ampla de informações e formação profissional. O Instituto foi fundado em 1990, e sua sede fica em Belém, no Pará. Em 25 anos de existência, o Imazon publicou 648 trabalhos técnicos, dos quais quase um terço foram veiculados como artigos em revistas científicas internacionais.

O Instituto de Pesquisa Ambiental da Amazônia (IPAM) é uma organização científica, não governamental e sem fins lucrativos que desde 1995 trabalha pelo desenvolvimento sustentável da Amazônia, de modo a gerar prosperidade econômica, justiça social e a conservação da integridade funcional dos ecossistemas da região.

Established in April 2016, the Lab is incubating a portfolio of landscape programs.  We are focused exclusively on programs covering over a million hectares, million tonnes of traded goods, million tonnes greenhouse gases, and $100 million investment size.


Our purpose is to:


  Enable high quality landscape programs in global biodiversity priority places – using jurisdictional REDD+, land degradation neutrality, catchment management and landscape sourcing approaches.


 

Oxfam India works primarily through grassroots organisations to bring deep-rooted sustainable changes in people’s lives. We work for the poorest and the socially excluded communities by mobilising them to campaign for greater economic and social reforms. 

Practical Action is an international non-governmental organisation (NGO) that uses technology to challenge poverty in developing countries.


We find out what people are doing and help them to do it better. Through technology we enable poor communities to build on their skills and knowledge to produce sustainable and practical solutions- transforming their lives forever and protecting the world around them.

Based in one of India’s least ‘developed’ states, we address environment and people-centred issues - from forest, water and land rights, livelihoods and mining issues, to climate change and disaster risk reduction. Our proactive and informed approach has brought RCDC acclaim and transformed lives in Odisha. Our grassroots interventions, research and expertise all inform our policy-level work, where we raise the debate and influence key decision-making in order to benefit our communities.

The Regional Learning and Advocacy Programme or REGLAP (which was known previously as the Regional Pastoral Livelihoods Advocacy Project) is funded by ECHO (European Commission Humanitarian Office) and aims to reduce the vulnerability of pastoral communities through policy and practice change in the Horn and East Africa.


REGLAP also seeks to promote the integration of humanitarian assistance with development interventions through disaster risk reduction (DRR) among governments, donors and national and international CSOs (civil society organisations).
