Subregional, regional and international cooperation in undertaking activities within the scope of the work program can enhance the collective ability of Parties to implement the Convention. The efforts of Inter Governmental Organizations and Non Government Organizations can also contribute to its implementation.
Recently, Amanda Katili Niode of the Indonesian National Climate Change who is also the Manager of The Climate Reality Project Indonesia was invited as a resident policy fellow at the Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center in northern Italy.
The Center's mission is to promote innovation and identify impact-oriented solutions to critical global problems. Through conferences and residency programs, the Bellagio Center supports the work of scholars, artists, thought leaders, policymakers, and practitioners who share in the Foundation’s pioneering mission to “promote the well-being of humanity.”
During the residency period from 27 August to 16 September Amanda Katili Niode worked on a draft manuscript entitled Communicating Climate Change: A 5-Year Perspective of the National Council on Climate Change, Indonesia.
The draft illustrates Climate Change Communications in Indonesia specifically the Council’s outreach activities since its establishment. The Five Year Perspective is expected to inspire future policies, initiatives and activities since improving awareness, understanding climate change, and creating solutions are key to winning public support for climate related policies.
The manuscript, to be published after consultations with stakeholders, consists of five sections:
1. Climate Change and Indonesia’s Response
2. Communicating a Changing Climate
3. Education, Training and Public Outreach
4. Challenges & Opportunities in Communicating Climate Change
5. Communicating Climate Change Beyond 2015
Activities of The Climate Reality Project Indonesia and the Climate Change Educators’ Skillshare are covered in Section 3 of the manuscript.
The Rockefeller Foundation, celebrating its centennial this year, supports work that expands opportunity and strengthens resilience to social, economic, health and environmental challenges—affirming its pioneering philanthropic mission since 1913 to promote the well-being of humanity.
Conference applications for the Bellagio Center are accepted year‐round; residency applications from practitioners are accepted year‐round, and residency applications from scholars and artists typically have May 1 and December 1 deadlines.
