Moderator: Ms. Francyne Harrigan, Chief, Development Section, UN Department of Public Information
Yoga is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The word ‘yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness. Today yoga is practiced in various forms around the world and continues to grow in popularity.
Adopted with a record number of 177 co-sponsoring countries, UN General Assembly Resolution A/RES/69/131 designated 21 June International Day of Yoga. This year will mark the first-ever observance of this Day.
The resolution notes “the importance of individuals and populations making healthier choices and following lifestyle patterns that foster good health.”
“By proclaiming 21 June as the International Day of Yoga, the General Assembly has recognized the holistic benefits of this timeless practice and its inherent compatibility with the principles and values of the United Nations,” said the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in his message for the Day.
The World Health Organization also urged its Member States to help their citizens reduce physical inactivity, which is among the top ten leading causes of death worldwide, and a key risk factor for non-communicable diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer and diabetes.
The Day will be observed by many UN offices worldwide and at UN Headquarters in New York with a special event sponsored by the Permanent Mission of India to the UN. The event will include statements by dignitaries and a demonstration of some simple asanas (yoga poses). It will be available through live webcast at webtv.un.org
“On this first-ever International Day of Yoga, let us see the benefits of this practice in terms of individual well-being, as well as our collective efforts to improve public health, promote peaceful relations and usher in a life of dignity for all,” concluded the UN Secretary-General.

About the webinar
The Mitigation Action Plans and Scenarios (MAPS) programme is a south-south collaboration amongst developing countries to generate the evidence base for long-term climate compatible development. Through MAPS, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Peru have been able to conduct nationally mandated research-processes for developing long term mitigation scenarios, supported by a team of experts in South Africa who implemented this approach for the first time in 2005 (known as Long Term Mitigation Scenarios). A broad range of stakeholders are being involved in developing evidence for mitigation action plans and scenarios.

This webinar is a collaboration among the LEDS LAC Platform, the Africa LEDS Partnership and the MAPS Programme. The event will feature a presentation of the MAPS approach and its results in Chile, as well as the way Chile and other Latin American countries are banking on the MAPS processes to develop the intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) that they must submit to the United Nations Convention on Climate Change.

The webinar will be held in English. If you have questions about this event, please contact the Africa LEDS Partnership
