South Asian People’s Action on Climate Crisis (SAPACC)

SAPACC, a rainbow coalition of organizations and individuals, was formed in May 2019 to bring together youth, women, farmers, workers, fisher folk, scientists, and people of all walks of life who are concerned with the climate crisis. SAPACC intends to appeal to South Asian governments to make declarations and follow them with appropriate actions to mitigate the climate crisis, and to table resolutions in the United Nations for taking urgent action at the global level. SAPACC will also work with South Asian civil societies to take urgent measures to reduce the risk of climate change impacts.
