About the webinar

In face o the challenges related to compliance with the  Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), multilevel governance plays an important role in optimizing climate action and sustainable development. The articulation of climate policies and actions between different levels of government is strategic to align criteria, priorities and methodologies promoted  from top to bottom, and at the same time  capturing the local reality and  needs.

This webinar addresses two cases of the Vertically Integrated Climate Protection and Climate Action II programnes in Mexico and Costa Rica, promoted by the German Development Cooperation, GIZ. On the one hand, in  Mexico it exemplifies how the state level, in this case Jalisco, integrates the national and state-level  climate policies to the  municipal level  through guidelines for the development of Municipal Climate Change Plans. On the other hand, it presents how from the national level in Costa Rica, a tool is generated to motivate the municipalities in the development of greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories as a starting point towards the fulfillment of the ambitious goals established by the country .

The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat:
