The Climate Action Accelerator regularly hosts webinars and hybrid events to share its approach and that of its partners, to raise awareness of the issues surrounding climate change and the low-carbon transition, to share concrete solutions, and to mobilise organisations to get on board.

Learnings from ALIMA’s way forward

03 February 2022 

How do we decarbonise humanitarian operations and reduce their environmental footprint? How do we integrate the climate and environmental crisis within a broader organisational approach? What motivated a young humanitarian organisation like ALIMA (The Alliance for International Medical Action) to embark on this holistic ecological transition?  

Watch to find out how ALIMA is taking a step towards its ambition to transform humanitarian medicine by taking stock of the climate emergency and translating it into its operations in West and Central Africa. After a 9-month process of collective intelligence in partnership with the Climate Action Accelerator, ALIMA has been able to co-construct its first decarbonisation and environmental roadmap, now beginning its implementation phase. The webinar is a genuine reflection from both Henri Leblanc (ALIMA) and Bruno Jochum (Climate Action Accelerator) on the essential guiding principles, the lessons learned so far, and the way forward.

If you try to compare the map of the most vulnerable countries, in terms of being affected by climate change, and the map of the countries of interventions of ALIMA, well, you have a match. Henri Leblanc, General Deputy Director of ALIMA

Key learnings for the humanitarian sector

06 May 2022 

How do we decarbonise humanitarian operations and reduce their environmental footprint? How do we integrate the climate and environmental crisis within a broader organisational approach?  

This session is our opportunity to explore these questions and share with you the way the Climate Action Accelerator and ALIMA are tackling them, as the organisation begins the implementation phase of its recent 2020-2030 roadmap. In addition to presenting the key takeaways from ALIMA’s carbon footprint report and the ensuing roadmap, we look forward to a dedicated moment at the end for feedback and dialogue with participants.

The central challenge is about how to reduce radically the footprint of humanitarian organisations while not affecting its core goal of assistance of vulnerable populations. Bruno Jochum, Founder of the Climate Action Accelerator

Halving emissions from business travel and procurement

19 May 2022 

Business travel and the procurement of goods and services typically represent a large share of the carbon footprint of an aid organisation. The good news is that solutions to tackle these emissions already exist.

How can these solutions be applied by the aid sector?
Can solutions from other sectors be replicated?
Are there specific challenges the aid sector faces in the implementation phase?

This webinar was organised with the support from the AFD – Agence française de développement.
