About the webinar

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warns that Central America is the most vulnerable hot spot in the world’s tropical regions, since it is highly sensitive to changes in temperature and precipitation patterns, and to increases in intensity and recurrence of extreme hydrometeorological events that are derived from, or enhanced by, climate change.

To deal with the negative effects of this process, rapid and effective actions based on climate information of quality adapted to the needs of the users are necessary. For this reason, Regional Committee on Hydraulic Resources (CRRH), one of the Technical Secretariats of the Central American Integration System, is working in collaboration with several institutional partners and the support of USAID’s Regional Climate Change Program, in the development of Centro Clima, the first regional climate information system for Central America and the Dominican Republic.

This webinar will present Centro Clima and two of its tools for specific sectors: coffee and fishing. The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the Secretariat of the LEDS LAC Platform: info@ledslac.org

 About the webinar

For LEDS LAC Platform, an effective climate policy is one that promotes the transformation of a country’s development patterns based on its specific objectives of mitigation and / or adaptation to climate change, which requires new forms of governance. The IPCC defines climate governance as “certain mechanisms and measures that aim to direct social systems towards the prevention, mitigation or adaptation of risks posed by climate change” (IPCC, 2014 citing Jagers and Stripple, 2003).

Taking into account the importance of interinstitutional coordination mechanisms to move away from the traditional sectoral planning scheme to a more inclusive one, in the process of preparing the LEDSenLAC 2016 report, the LEDS LAC Secretariat, with the support of the World Bank, prepared a Work Document that characterizes mechanisms of inter-institutional coordination existing in 16 countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. In a complementary way, the Working Group on National-Subnational Integration of LEDS GP, in collaboration with Adapt Chile, developed a study on multi-level governance dynamics in the region.

This webinar will present the findings of both studies and will report on the progress of the support being given to the development of multilevel governance mechanisms in Ecuador, in collaboration with the Consortium of Provincial Governments and other partners. The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat: info@ledslac.org.

About the webinar

In order to finance climate change mitigation and green growth, both developed and developing countries will be required to seek out a combination of financial sources, including but not limited to carbon pricing. The financial risks and rewards connected to renewable energy projects in developing countries need to be shared across a larger number of financial institutions, individual investors, and public entities both in developing and developed countries to respond to a reality where a wealth of projects in developing countries contributing to mitigation and green and sustainable growth fails to attract the investments they need. Crowd-funding can be part of a new and emerging set of solution, but they need to get to scale.

The webinar aims at raising awareness among project developers and the private sector on how crowd-investing and crowd-funding platforms can represent a source of finance that catalyzes the implementation climate change mitigation projects, including the CDM, in the Latin American and Caribbean regions. The webinar will be held in English. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the Secretariat of the LEDS LAC Platform: info@ledslac.org.

About the webinar

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) was created to canalize resources from developed countries to developing countries to finance their actions in climate change mitigation and adaptation. The GCF is expected to become the main fund to finance the fight against climate change, with the mobilization of 100 billion USD by 2020.

In order to access this Fund, countries must have the capacity to plan financing as well as to monitor, report and verify the financial costs associated with climate change. For this, there is a readiness support program with the objective of improving the domestic appropriation and the access to the GCF by means of the strengthening of institutional capacities.

In this webinar the participants will learn the recent advances in the operation of the GCF the preparation of the LAC countries to access funding from it, and will have the opportunity ask questions in a segment specially designed to clarify doubts and guide the search for additional information. The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the Secretariat of the LEDS LAC Platform: info@ledslac.org.
