Webinar: Why invest in Locally Led Adaptation in the lead up to COP 26

November 15, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+6

International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) is going to organize Webinar on Why invest in Locally Led Adaptation in the lead up to COP 26.

Date: 15 November 2020 (Sunday)

Time: 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm Bangladesh Time (GMT/UTC +6), 2.00PM-3.00 PM United Kingdom (GMT)

Where: Online, using Zoom

Under Theme 1: Green Fair and Resilient Recovery of LCAW November 2020, ICCCAD aims to host an online discussion event in light of a new initiative Locally Led Adaptation and Resilience Network (LLARN). The network is a platform focused on engaging individuals; institutions from local level; national level; and other countries to support new climate research, partnership and capacity building. At the core the network wants to use the social capital of the network members to help each other.

The event would invite researchers, policymakers and practitioners who are the members of the LLARN to discuss how locally led adaptation measures are crucial to strengthen the vulnerable communities against the adverse effect of climate change. Furthermore, the event will reiterate how ICCCAD is promoting the platform to represent Locally Led Adaptations initiative in Bangladesh as a means to promote south-south-north knowledge exchange.

The output of the program will allow individuals in attendance dive into how the LLARN network will explore developing a platform for members to engage with each other going forward. Additionally the event will discuss the actions and major milestones set by the network in the lead up to COP 26 next year.


To cater to a larger audience we will Livestream the event at ICCCAD’s Facebook page
