Webinar: Climate Resilience through Collaboration Across Scales
The NAP Global Network and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) are hosting a joint webinar on vertical integration for locally led climate adaptation action. This webinar aims to facilitate exchanges on the valuable lessons learned from collaborating across layers of governance and with non-state stakeholders in the design, development, and implementation of National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) and sector-specific development plans that focus on climate resilience.
National governments have a key role in the development of just and inclusive climate policies, and in overseeing their implementation. Local actors—such as sub-national governments, communities, local businesses and their networks, as well as civil society and research institutions—are not only at the forefront of implementing measures on the ground: they should also contribute to designing and prioritizing these measures.
A more consultative and multilevel approach to the governance of climate action can help overcome technical, financial, and political challenges in aligning adaptation goals and visions across levels. This approach also enables the integration of climate risks and opportunities into local development strategies.
The webinar will have speakers from governments and development partners who will share their experiences in implementing multilevel collaboration. Representatives of the OECD and the NAP Global Network will also provide perspectives from their latest projects.
