The Faith Pavilion
Faith Based Organisations and religious leaders are an important presence at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of Parties demonstrating that religious and spiritual communities are essential to the fight against climate change and to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the goals of the Paris Agreement.
UNEP, through the Faith for Earth Coalition has a robust Pre-COP consultation process that has been underway since January 2023. Click here for a summary of the engagement.
