About the webinar

There is an increasing international recognition that climate change has differential impacts on men and women, and that gender inequalities negatively affect women’s ability to cope. This led to the formulation and subsequent approval of the Gender and Climate Change Action Plan of Peru (PAGCC).

The PAGCC, approved by decree No. 012-2016-MINAM in 2016, links national policy and international agreements and promotes the participation of sectors, regions and public institutions in general, in relation to the adaptation and management of emissions of greenhouse gases, with a gender focus.

This webinar will present the objectives, advances and challenges of the PAGCC, followed by the experiences of two community initiatives that have incorporated the gender approach in initiatives related to mitigation and adaptation to Climate Change. 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.

Transport Toolkit

This toolkit developed by LEDS GP’s Transport Working Group aims to support development planners, technical experts, and decision-makers at national and local levels to plan and implement low emission transport systems that support economic growth. The toolkit helps users navigate a variety of resources to identify the most effective tools to build and implement low emission development strategies for the transport sector.

About the webinar

In 1992, during the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, Canada invited countries to implement the Model Forest as a new approach to land management and created the International Model Forest Network. The Model Forest is a concept for landscape management that focuses on people working in partnerships, with a common vision of sustainable human development, in large territories with different uses and values of land, where the forest ecosystem plays an important role

At that time different regional networks were born, including the Ibero-American Model Forest Network (RIABM), which nowadays links 32 territories in 15 countries across Central America, South America, the Caribbean and Spain, totaling more than 31 million hectares. The RIABM supports its members through the dissemination and transfer of best practices and activities about responsible forestry and natural resource management, ensuring financial sustainability and contributing to processes that drive the formulation, implementation and evaluation of public policies related to sustainable development.

In this webinar we will share the experience of the RIABM and two of its members in strengthening governance for the sustainable management of forest landscapes. The webinar will be held in Spanish.

Agenda

Introduction. Ana María Majano. Coordinator of the LEDS LAC Secretariat, Tropical Agriculture Research and Higher Education Center (CATIE).

Distributed generation: opportunities and advances in Peru. Natalie Rona. Specialist of the Pilot Intervention “Distributed Generation with Solar Panels”, Project to Support the Climate Change Management (Gestión CC)  |  Download presentation

Experience of self-supply with solar panels in the Majes Tradición Company. Juan José Milón. Research Director, Technological University of Peru.  |  Download presentation

About the webinar

The Distributed Generation presents the possibility for network users to generate their own electricity through renewable energies and inject their surplus into the grid. This model of decentralized generation has been implemented by more than half of the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean and presents several benefits beyond the savings in energy consumption, such as the diversification of the energy mix, the creation of new jobs, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the development of new business models, among others.

The Project to Support Climate Change Management, within its component of Pilot Interventions, analyzes the feasibility of the mitigation option “Distributed Generation with Solar Panels” and its potential of application in the region of Arequipa in Peru. This option was selected because of its high social impact and the opportunity it represents given the solar potential of southern Peru, the penetration of solar photovoltaic technology in Arequipa, and its successful application in other countries of the Latin American region (LAC).

This webinar will discuss the opportunities presented by distributed generation for Latin America and the Caribbean, and the lessons from a practical experience in Arequipa, Peru. 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.

Agenda

Introduction. Ana María Majano. Coordinator of the LEDS LAC Secretariat. Tropical Agronomic Center for Research and Higher Education (CATIE).

Methodological challenges of articulating the metrics of mitigation and adaptation. Rodrigo Villate. Technical advisor on mitigation and adaptation, German Agency for Development Cooperation (GIZ) |  Download presentation

The national system of indicators of adaptation to climate change in Colombia and the link with mitigation. Laura Cruz. Adaptation consultant, Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development of Colombia (MADS). |  Download presentation

About the webinar

One of the priority topics of the LEDS LAC Platform is the integration of the mitigation, adaptation and development agendas. With support from the EUROCLIMA Program and other partners, the Platform´s Secretariat has organized face to face and online exchanges among governmental experts and international organizations, aimed at identifying common challenges, advances, lessons learned, good practices and tools available to move forward in this integration.

As a result of exchanges that took place in 2015 (check publication), a number of factors were identified, which limit the efforts to design and implement measures that contribute simultaneously to mitigation and adaptation, among them, the lack of tools to simultaneously measure the advances in mitigation and adaptation. This point was revisited during an Expert Workshop held in October 2016, discussing the challenges of articulating the monitoring and evaluation of adaptation, and the measurement, reporting and verification of mitigation, as well as methodological and practical advances in that area.

This webinar aims to continue the discussion on this topic, presenting an expert´s perspective on the opportunities and challenges to articulate mitigation and adaptation metrics, and the case of Colombia on how the process of formulating adaptation indicators is being used to capture linkages with mitigation. 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
