Many Strong Voices launches new website

New website launched for Many Strong Voices, a programme which links the Arctic and Small Island Developing States to meet the challenges of climate change.

Site: www.manystrongvoices.org

Visit the website at www.manystrongvoices.org

Many Strong Voices is a programme which links two of the most vulnerable regions, the Arctic and Small Island Developing States, to act on climate change. Since its inception in 2005, MSV has been working to bring together over 20 organisations from these two regions to take collaborative and strategic actions on climate change mitigation and adaptation at the local, regional and international level. MSV's ongoing work includes working on human rights and climate change, community-based relocation, clean energy, ecosystem-based adaptation, and food security. 

Key resources available through the web site include access to peer-reviewed articles and publications on the themes of climate change and the SIDS, community-based adaptation, and disaster risk management in island contexts. The website also serves as the e-portal for the Portraits of Resilience photography project, which trains youth and schools in the Arctic and SIDS in the use of photography and other digital media, helping to bring personal stories and faces to the attention of the general public and to decision-makers at international climate change negotiations. See visually stunning and engaging stories from youth on the frontlines of climate change at www.manystrongvoices.org/portraits
