1. What is it?
The Youth4Pacific: Pre-COP Gathering is a two-day virtual/hybrid event aimed at bringing together young people from the Pacific region. The summit will be an opportunity for youths to contribute through a constructive and outcome-oriented discussion on issues that need urgent action. In this regard, the summit will provide space for young people in terms of capacity building and the means to effectively engage on COP26 Agenda Items as well as gather an increased understanding of the UNFCCC negotiation processes.
