The V-LED Africa Workshop “Localising Climate Finance and Action” will be held on 23-25 April, 2018 in Cape Town, South Africa. Experts are invited to submit abstracts for a think piece or session input for the workshop. The closing date for abstracts is 12 February 2018.
Contributions can be based on research, policy or practice that capture the latest African knowledge around local climate action for the achievement of the Nationally-Determined Contributions (NDCs), local climate finance and multi-level climate governance.
The workshop will bring together policymakers, officials, researchers and practitioners from the sub-national and national climate governance community in Africa, as well as donor organisations, civil society and the private sector.
The workshop is hosted by adelphi and organised in cooperation with Sustainable Energy Africa, One World and the Institute for Law and Environmental Governance. It will build on the experiences of the project “Vertical Integration and Learning for Low-Emission Development in Africa and Southeast Asia” (V-LED), supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety as part of its International Climate Initiative (IKI).
