About the webinar

2019 is the year of climate action. The increase in the ambition of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), requires significant changes in the development patterns of important sectors of the region, which leads to an involvement of all levels of government, and the incorporation of initiatives and actions of the different non-state actors.

The signatory countries of the Paris Agreement must demonstrate their real commitment to stop global warming at the next conference of the parties (COP25), in which Latin America and the Caribbean will assume the leadership with Costa Rica and Chile in the process of negotiations. It is an opportunity for our region to make a balance of what we have advanced and where we should be beyond 2020, to facilitate even greater climate action. In this sense, journalists and communicators have an important role to put the issue on the agenda.

This webinar, organized jointly by the UNFCCC, LEDS LAC Platform, LatinClima and ConexiónCOP, will be focused on an interview of Latin American journalists to two important leaders of this process, where we are and what role the different actors of the region play in special journalists and communicators, to increase climate action towards the COP25.

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

About the webinar

During 2018, 02 relevant milestones were reached for the Integral Management of Climate Change in Peru. On April 17th, the Framework Law on Climate Change N°30754 was promulgated; and in December of the same year, the Multisectoral Working Group in charge of generating technical information to guide the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (GTM-NDC) defined in its final report, the adaptation and mitigation measures that are part of the NDCs until 2030.

The identification of the 91 adaptation measures and the 62 mitigation measures involved multisector, multilevel and multi-stakeholder work in the framework of the participatory process called “Dialogue on NDCs”. By 2019, the socialization and linking of the NDCs with the Regional Strategies for Climate Change (ERCC, for its acronym in Spanish) has been prioritized.

In this first virtual event, aimed at key actors in the regions of Peru, the Roadmap for the preparation of the National Adaptation Plan will be presented in order to receive contributions to the proposal. The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LEDS LAC Platform Secretariat: info@ledslac.org.
