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:
