Regional Asia Pacific Programme: Advancing Just Transitions to Climate Resilient and Nature-Positive Societies (RAPP 2) 

Between 2017 and 2024, RWI successfully implemented the Regional Asia Programme on Human Rights and Sustainable Development (RAPP 1), focusing on human rights, gender equality, and sustainable development. 

Building on RAPP 1’s successes, RWI introduces the Regional Asia Pacific Programme: Advancing Just Transitions to Climate Resilient and Nature-Positive Societies (RAPP 2) that will run between 2024-2026. RAPP 2 aims to enhance enabling environments for just transitions to climate-resilient and nature-positive societies that are grounded in human rights and gender equality in the Asia Pacific. The concept of “just transitions” now extends beyond adapting workers’ skills for technological changes, encompassing fairness, justice, and equity in responses to climate change, including adaptation, loss and damage, biodiversity, and environmental protection. 

RAPP 2 focuses on regional collaborations and initiatives to better manage cross-border and sub-regional issues. It also enhances opportunities for citizen- and stakeholder-led influence and accountability of duty bearers within existing procedures, processes, and practices. The programme prioritizes the participation and inclusion of women and marginalised groups, emphasising gender and conflict perspectives in its design, performance indicators, and intended outcomes. 

RAPP 2 concentrates on addressing key focus areas which are Climate Change and Human Mobility, Access to Environmental Justice, and Business, Human Rights, and the Environment.
