Support to the formulation of the National Strategy for Action on Climate Empowerment in Argentina

Since 2020, and through its second Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), the Republic of Argentina has increased its climate ambition, promoting and recognising the urgent priority of the design and implementation of public policies on Climate Change, and achieving cross-cutting involvement.

Its second NDC states that by 2030, educational and cultural policies in their environmental dimension will be strengthened and enhanced, creating spaces for intergenerational knowledge exchange, promoting youth empowerment and gender equity in politics, and contributing to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and national and international regulatory instruments related to the issue.

For this reason, and to promote the paradigm shift necessary to respond to the urgency, actions aimed at climate empowerment will be promoted, as well as educational and cultural policies that transversally promote environmental and climate awareness, public participation of youth organisations and different local actors, teacher training in environmental education for climate change, training and technical assistance for projects that allow communities and citizens to access and acquire knowledge on environmental and climate change issues.

General Objective

  • Strengthen national climate policy, governance and institutional capacities for education, awareness raising, training, public access to information and citizen participation.
  • Strengthen the national planning process that articulates existing initiatives in the National Public Administration and the National Climate Change Cabinet, related to the elements of Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE) for the short, medium and long term.
