What’s on offer at CENFACS

We have on offer for this week and this Spring 2018 the following.

For this week, we are continuing our work on CSPAC P. 2 with KIP as our 2018 working theme.  We are also undertaking Local Climate Action activities to keep up with our month of Climate Action.

For the Spring season, you will find below a number of selected projects and programmes making Spring Relief.  We have added to them two coming initiatives: our Easter humanitarian appeal (ReLive, Issue No. 10) and our Spring ICDP resource (Holiday with Relief).


This week’s activities

•• Activities under CSPAC – P.2 with KIP

Need Assessment of the Costs of Climate Protection for Children

Children have many types of needs starting from the basic to the more complex ones, like any human beings.  Amongst children’s needs are those to reduce poverty and hardships.  Along with these needs are financial and insurance requests to meet and address the adverse impacts and effects of climate change. 

As part of KIP, we are working on these financial and insurance needs.  This is because in order to advocate with children for climate finance and insurance covers, one needs to work out costs and carry out a financial need assessment of these covers.  This is done bearing in mind the characteristics of climate events at particular places.

•• Activities under Local Climate Action

Activities for LCA for this week include the following.

Climate Change Action plans: This activity is about looking at the gaps between plans and achievements, between what has worked and what is not working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Mapping of Climate Change Actions: This activity helps in identifying good actions taken locally and rating them.

To engage with the contents or activities related to CSPAC – P.2 and LCA, please contact CENFACS. 


Coming this Spring: Holiday with Relief (Resource) and ReLive (Appeal)

Holiday with Relief: Focus for 2018 is on Local Information

To reflect CENFACS’ Local Year Campaign in our Spring resource, we have chosen to raise the importance of local information whether we pass holidays at home or away.  To achieve a successful holiday, we need local information which we can get through local newspapers, magazines, institutions, shops, tourist offices, TVs, radios, libraries etc. 

We can also use Google search engine and other information search platforms from our mobile phones or any digital devices to access the types of information we need.  So, whether we pass our holidays at home or go away we need local information to enjoy our holidays.

ReLive, Issue No.10

CENFACS’ Annual Spring Appeal for Renewing Life (ReLive) will focus on advocating for support for the peoples of three African countries surrounded by water or island countries (Comoros, Madagascar and Mauritius). 

Details of the Gifts for Renewing Lives will be released by the middle of Spring.

Apart from these above coming initiatives, please also find below some other selections from our Spring menu of works.

To get further details about Holidays with Relief and ReLive, please contact CENFACS.
