We welcome you to join our session as part of the Third Global Gobeshona Conference (GGC3), which is a continuation of the GGC1 session “Capacity Building for Promoting “Local Adaptation Innovation” through regional collaboration on 22nd January 2021 and the GGC2 session on “Localization of NDCs through community-led ‘adaptation innovation’ in the Asia-Pacific: Needs and Pathways” in March 2022.
The upcoming GGC3 session aims to introduce the challenges and opportunities for promoting locally led adaptation from three regionally distinct areas: Nepal, Fiji, and Vietnam as a part of a new initiative between APN and IGES on locally led adaption. The initiative aims to understand and establish a foundation for applying the principles of locally led adaptation. This initiative will contribute the capacity development programme of the Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Information Platform (AP-PLAT), an initiative of the Japanese Government to support adaptation action in the Asia-Pacific region.
In this session, the presentation and discussion will focus on key challenges for understanding local climate risk, opportunities for promoting traditional, indigenous and local knowledge systems as a basis for locally led adaption, and necessary governance arrangements to institutionalize and integrate locally led adaptation into climate risk planning.
