Webinar on Embracing the leadership of local actors and communities in climate action
Join ICVA and PHAP for the fourth session on Learning Stream on Climate Change and Humanitarian Action
On 17 March, ICVA and PHAP will organize the next session of the Learning Stream on Climate Change and Humanitarian Action, exploring Commitment #3 of the Climate and Environment Charter. Commitment #3 aims to embrace the leadership of local actors and communities by learning from traditional and indigenous knowledge on mitigation and adaptation measures, including nature-based solutions. In turn, we also need to support local communities and actors to be better prepared to face the impacts of a changing climate and environmental risks.
This webinar will aim at answering the following questions:
- How are NGOs and local communities working together to support local leadership in climate action?
- How can we ensure meaningful and inclusive participation and leadership of local actors and people we serve are part of our programs' design, management, implementation, and evaluation?
- What can we do better to promote local leadership in the light of climate change? How can we improve our programs accordingly?
- What can we learn from local, traditional, and indigenous knowledge which can be replicated in other contexts?
As part of ICVA's and PHAP's Learning Stream on Climate Change and Humanitarian Action, this event followed the launch event of the series that introduced the Charter, the first session of the webinar that examined adapting to the impacts of the climate and environmental crises, the second session on maximizing the environmental sustainability of humanitarian work and the third session on practical tools and initiatives for reducing environmental impact in humanitarian action.
This webinar is free to attend, and if you missed the previous webinar in the series, you can access the recording on the event page.
