The Climate Change Symposium is an annual FORUMCC flagship event that brings together civil society and representatives from the government, development partners, academic institutions, youth and women groups, and media to discuss and propose solutions to address climate change and its related issues.
FORUMCC has been, jointly with Oxfam and other Partners, organizing the Summit (previously known as symposium) since 2014. This year (2019) Summit will be the fifth one to be organised. Each of the previous years, the Summit had a specific overall theme related to existing, on-going and upcoming key climate issue and/or process. The previous Summits had the following themes:
2014: Climate Change and CSOs Space for Effective Engagement
2015: Towards the Global Climate Agreement
2016: Acceleration of Integration of Climate Change Adaptation into Plans and Budget
2018: Financing for Climate Action: Bringing Accountability at the core of Addressing Climate Change
