Tuesday 7 September, 16.00-16.30 CEST, online.
With: Margot Loof and Enkas Chau (Sudan)
This session by Cordaid will focus on the importance of climate action (both adaptation & mitigation) at the local level and on how we can improve the access to the needed climate finance for communities and CSOs / NGOs.
Climate change is affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting people’s lives, livelihoods and basic services. But vulnerable people in the least developed countries are affected most by climate change impacts. Developing countries have a limited capacity to deal with climate change, and need to be supported – also financially - to take climate action.
Cordaid aims to mitigate the causes of climate change and to adapt its programming to the negative impacts. Identified climate risks are being addressed through different project interventions, based on people’s skills and capacities and on innovations. In the session we will discuss our climate action work and how this could be supported further by improved access to climate finance at local level.
