Starting from 27th March 2022, the seven-day long annual Gobeshona Global Conference on Locally Led Adaptation (LLA) will be hosted by the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) fully online! This conference will bring together researchers as well as practitioners and supporters of LLA under one platform to focus on Learning and Measuring progress locally, nationally and globally, each year and track progress year on year. The aim of the Gobeshona Global conference, from 2021 has been to stimulate actions amongst the participants, inspire people to start their own initiatives (through research or practice) and encourage collaborations; which they will take forward between conferences and come back each year to report on their progress.

  • Session title: Localization of NDCs through community-led ‘adaptation innovation’  in the Asia-Pacific region: Needs and Pathways
  • Date and time: 31 March 2022, 10:00-11:30 (Bangladesh Standard Time); UTC+6

We welcome you to join our session as part of the Second Global Gobeshona Conference (GGC2), which is a continuation of the GGC1 session “Capacity Building for Promoting “Local Adaptation Innovation” through regional collaboration on 22nd January 2021. The session aims to discuss regional capacity building initiatives on localizing Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) through community (locally)-led adaptation innovation. This initiative is jointly led by IGES and APN in collaboration with several regional partners as part of the capacity building pillar of the Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Information Platform (AP-PLAT), which is an initiative of the Japanese Government to support adaptation action in the Asia-Pacific region. In this session, the breakout groups and the ensuing panel discussion will bring fresh insights to capacity building that will be jointly implemented to support the mainstreaming of local adaptation innovation into NDC implementation. The session will highlight cases and examples that will form a basis for designing a robust capacity building programme for scaling up locally adaptation through channels like AP-PLAT and in line with the goals of the UNFCCC Paris Agreement.
