Welcome. Aida Figari. Technical expert of the LEDS LAC Secretariat, Libélula Perú.

The importance of participatory processes for the revision of the NDCs. Claudio Forner. Mitigation, Data and Analysis Program, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Participatory process “Let’s talk about the NDC” in Peru. Alexis Echevarría. Coordinator of NDC processes of the Climate Change and Desertification Directorate, Ministry of the Environment of Peru.

Process of formulation and participatory validation of the NDC of Ecuador. Jorge Núñez Jara. Project Coordinator of the National Plan for Adaptation to Climate Change of Ecuador (PLANACC).

About the webinar

We are at a key moment for countries to take action to increase the ambition of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). According to the Paris Agreement, countries will have until 2020 to reevaluate their climate plans and commit themselves to a level of ambition that will prevent global warming above 1.5 ° C.

One of the challenges facing the Latin American and Caribbean region is to establish clear mechanisms for citizen participation in the development and implementation of climate policies and programs. This webinar will focus on the importance of citizen participation, multisectoral and multilevel to establish low-emission economic processes and resilient to climate change that are sustainable in the long term. The objective of the webinar is to know participatory processes that are working in Latin America, as well as to open a space for an exchange of ideas among countries around the challenges and opportunities that we have in the region to integrate different participants in the review and implementation of the NDCs.

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.

Introduction: Presentation Working Group Resource Efficiency. Agustina Besada and Karen Tscherning. Coordinators of the Resource Efficiency Working Group, Asociación SustentAR and GIZ. | Download presentation

Business Ecoefficiency Program, Costa Rica. Miriam Córdoba. Sustainability Advisor, Business Alliance for Development (AED) Costa Rica. | Download presentation

GEMI Initiative Mexico. Alejandro Sosa. Executive Director, Global Environmental Management Initiative (GEMI) Mexico. | Download presentation

About the webinar

The management of resources has a great impact on the environment, linked both to the extraction of materials or resources, and to greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and pollution. There is great potential to increase the efficiency of resources throughout the life cycle of a resource or product, considering the extraction of raw material, design, production, transportation, consumption and its final disposal.

 

In this framework, we launched a new Working Group on Efficiency of Resources, with the aim of providing a space for the exchange of knowledge, experience and discussion on the different strategies that allow for a more efficient management of resources, as well as designing systems that reduce consumption and waste of resources, while contributing to climate protection. The nature of this working group is multidisciplinary, since it combines different areas of action linked to climate change, such as production, transport, consumption, and waste management.

 

This webinar will present new experiences in the region and challenges in the field. 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

Sustainable  refers to supply chain management practices and strategies that reduce the environmental footprint and energy consumption of the distribution of loads. This clean logistics focuses on material handling and waste management, the selection of suitable containers and containers and their transport (Rodrigue, et al, 2017). In addition to the aforementioned official measures, many companies and referents from the private sector incorporate improvements with the double objective of reducing their energy consumption costs and offering transport and logistics services compatible with the care and conservation of the environment.

Taking this into account, the community of practice on sustainable logistics begins, which is a space of continuous collaboration to allow peer learning, provide a deeper understanding of the options available to overcome barriers and access technical assistance. The exchange will allow us to know the different scales of application of this set of measures, starting with the regional and national scale, to then focus the analysis on urban spaces and problems, in the following meetings.

In this webinar we will synthesize the growth trends of transport, the concepts related to clean logistics -or green- and we will explore a national sustainable transport plan as an applied case and trigger for the first debate activity of the community.

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.

Round of questions. Katiana Murillo. Coordinator, LatinClima.

Continues round of questions from the journalists participating in the webinar

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.

Agenda

Introduction. Aida Figari. Technical expert of the LEDS LAC Secretariat, Libélula Perú.

Advances in the Integral Management of Climate Change in Peru. Cristina Rodríguez Valladares. Director of Adaptation to Climate Change and Desertification, General Directorate of Climate Change and Desertification of the Ministry of the Environment of Peru (MINAM). Download presentation. 

Presentation of the Roadmap for the preparation of the National Adaptation Plan (NAP). Madeleine Obando Álvarez. Specialist in Monitoring and Evaluation, General Directorate of Climate Change and Desertification of MINAM. Download presentation. 

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.
