Best Practices of Meaningful Youth Engagement in Climate Governance in Asia and the Pacific


António Guterres
Secretary-General of the United Nations

"Meaningful, diverse, and effective youth participation – inside the United Nations and far beyond – is essential to advancing human rights, addressing the climate crisis and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals"

Earlier this May, during the 79th ESCAP Commission Session, the Youth Empowerment in Climate Action Platform (YECAP) showcased the first draft of the Compendium of Best Practices on Youth and Climate Governance in the Asia-Pacific. The Compendium features 15 initiatives of meaningful youth engagement in climate governance, with the involvement of governments in Asia-Pacific. 

The Compendium is for government counterparts and policymakers to highlight their best practices and discover concrete examples in the region to inspire their work on including/empowering youth in the climate decision-making processes and policies.

Discover 15 inspiring government-led initiatives across the Region in the Compendium
