Republic of Benin, like several countries of the world, is very affected by climate change impacts. Thus, it is necessary to act urgently. It is now time to take urgent action and find innovative, realistic solutions to tackle climate change effectively.
This why last year from 28 to 30 October 2016, CRADDES NGO successfully organized the first Regional Conference of Youth on climate change in Benin (COY12-Porto-Novo). Then 120 young people from 6 West African countries attended to this wonderful event.
Also this year before COP23 in Germany, the Centre for Research and Action for Sustainable Development and Fulfilment of Societies (CRADDES NGO) will organize the 13th Regional Conference of Youth on Climate Change in Benin (Regional COY13 Abomey-Calavi). The event will gather 200 young leaders from Benin and at least 20 others countries around the world to ignite discussions, build capacity and showcase local and regional solutions to tackle climate change and related issues.
