Bénin : L’adaptation au cœur des solutions

Bénin : L’adaptation au cœur des solutions

Bénin : L’adaptation au cœur des solutions   Un financement français de 58 millions d’euros vient d’être octroyé au Bénin. Son objectif : permettre à la population de lutter contre les changements climatiques. Explications. Par Hippolyte AGOSSOU     Le 5 mars dernier, le Benin a signé une convention de financement avec l’Agence Française de Développement. Cette convention d’un montant de 58 millions d’euros a pour objectif d’aider à la mise en place du projet d’Adaptation des Villes aux Changements Climatiques. Le projet d’Adaptation des Villes aux Changements Climatiques (PAVIC) est une des composantes préétablie dans le plan d’Action du gouvernement pour aider, par des outils spécifiques, les villes à s’adapter aux conséquences des changements climatiques dans le domaine de l’agriculture, de l’industrie, de la pêche notamment. Son ambition : accompagner un changement de mentalités afin de protéger les zones sensibles et inondables et soutenant des activités qui respectent l’environnement. Autres mission : renforcer les capacités des acteurs locaux des territoires urbains pour faire face aux aléas climatiques en améliorant  leur résilience et en permettant au Bénin de faire face de manière stratégique aux changements climatiques.   « Cet appui important du gouvernement français aidera le Bénin à atteindre les objectifs fixés dans le cadre de la mise en œuvre de ce projet contenu dans le Plan d’Action du Gouvernement du Président Patrice TALON, »  a indiqué le ministre béninois du cadre de vie José Didier TONATO. Quatre villes vont bénéficier du programme : Bohicon, Comé, Cotonou et Sèmè-Podji. L’Afrique est considérée comme l’un des continents les plus vulnérables au changement climatique. La plupart des pays africains comme le Bénin témoignent vraisemblablement de grande difficultés à s’adapter aux effets de cette mutations environnementale. De fait,  les autorités béninoises en charge du cadre de vie multiplient les actions pour identifier de potentiels partenaires pouvant les aider  techniquement et financièrement dans le processus d’adaption des populations. La France est considérée comme un des partenaires privilégiés du Bénin.  ...

UNFCCC: A new gate for the Talanoa Dialogue

UNFCCC: A new gate for the Talanoa Dialogue

UNFCCC: A new gate for the Talanoa Dialogue The UN Climate Change secretariat launched yesterday a new portal to support the Talanoa Diaologue, an important international conversation in which countries will check progress and seek to increase global ambition to meet the goals of the Paris Climate Change Agreement. By Houmi Ahamed-Mikidache   How will it work? Through the portal, all countries and other stakeholders, including business, investors, cities, regions and civil society, are invited to make submissions into the Talanoa Dialogue around three central questions: Where are we? Where do we want to go? How do we get there? Countries and non-Party stakeholders will be contributing ideas, recommendations and information that can assist the world in taking climate action to the next level in order to meet the objectives of the Paris Agreement and support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Talanoa Dialogue The Dialogue was launched at the UN Climate Change Conference COP23 in Bonn in November 2017 and will run throughout 2018. The Paris Agreement’s central goal is keep the global average temperature rise to below 2C degrees and as close as possible to 1.5C. Current global ambition to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to prepare societies to resist increasing climate change is not enough to achieve this under the current national climate action plans known as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). “The portal is the gateway for the Talanoa Dialogue. It represents the central point for everyone to make their views heard around enhanced ambition. Additionally, it will make available other key resources for the dialogue,” said Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of UN Climate Change. “I very much welcome the portal because it provides transparency and broadens participation in the dialogue. I look forward to many governments and other actors making their submissions via the portal as part of world-wide efforts required for the next level of climate action and ambition”, she said. The Pacific island concept of ‘Talanoa’ was introduced by Fiji, which held the Presidency of the COP23 UN Climate Change Conference. It aims at an inclusive, participatory and transparent dialogue. The purpose of the concept is to share stories, build empathy and to make wise decisions for the collective good. The Talanoa method purposely avoids blame and criticism to create a safe space for the exchange of ideas and collective decision-making. The Talanoa Dialogue will be constructive, facilitative and oriented towards providing solutions and will see both technical and political exchanges....

Africa-Environment: “we have to be very strong” Pacome Moubelet Boubeya (AMCEN)

Africa-Environment: “we have to be very strong” Pacome Moubelet Boubeya (AMCEN) On the sidelne of  the  3rd United Nations Environment Assembly held at the end of last year,  Era Environnement was part of a press conference held by  the minister of Forestry and Environment of Gabon, Pacome Moubelet Boubeya, who  is also the  president of the African Ministerial Conference on the Environment ( AMCEN).  Mr Pacome Moubelet Boubeya gave his view on the significant role that  (AMCEN) plays on the continent and in the world. Interview by Wandile Kalippa in Kenya Era Environnement: Do you think Africa is ready to walk the talk on pollution, in view of the contrasting realities of ecosystem pollution by oil companies in Central Africa and Nigeria, and West Africa particularly, Nigeria and Gabon to be exact? Pacome Moubelet Boubeya: We have a big challenge. We have a challenge of developing our countries, of financing that development, of creating jobs and wealth to our countries, but we have a greater challenge even that of making sure that in the development strategies that we are taking we are not going to be destroying our own countries because of the exploitation of oil for instance, so, we have to be very aware of that and we have to adapt our development ambitions to what the reality is going to be tomorrow. If we do not do so now that the West is making and taking every effort for them to align with what they believe tomorrow is going to be. If we do not do anything today, it means that tomorrow we will be once again twenty of fifty years late, if we can compare with the West. So, we have a challenge. The challenge is to as I was saying to create wealth, give jobs to our people in the case of Nigeria and in the case of Gabon as well, you see that our population is very young and if we foresee the increase in population, let us say in Nigeria we can see that within the next twenty – twenty five, fifty years the population of Nigeria is going to increase by something like twenty five or thirty five percent, and we need to adapt our environment , global environment with the increase of population that we are going to have to make sure that we have the means and wealth to take care of these people as well. But maintaining what we have the most permanent in our countries which is our earth, our environment and we have to do whatever we have to, to protect, it means what? It means we have to...
