Objective of the event

The event focuses on Latin American countries' need for financing for their processes of transforming the agricultural sector towards food systems with low GHG emissions, resilient to climate change, guaranteeing the livelihoods and needs of indigenous peoples, with gender equity.

The design of proposals for international climate funds requires professional training and inter-institutional articulation to develop substantial actions that enable the implementation of sectoral policies that support the transition to low-carbon economies and resilient societies. A high-level panel discusses proposals for action from 4 countries, prepared for funding from the Green Climate Fund, Adaptation Fund or the International Climate Initiative. They cover innovative approaches including Nature-based Solutions, Ecosystem-based Adaptation, Synergies between Adaptation and Mitigation or Inclusive Climate Financing.

Description

Representatives of Designated National Authorities for four projects present key elements of their concept notes (Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, Panama), focusing on how to effectively improve practices, organisational structures and institutional environments for managing climate finance. The panellists share their views on opportunities and challenges for obtaining sustainable financing. Moderators focus the discussion on lessons learned during the design and formulation process, addressing, among others, how to align multi-stakeholder, -level, -sector interests, build public-private partnerships and increase the ambition of projects to achieve country and target fund objectives.

The moderation motivates interaction with the audience  with representatives of organisations accredited to the Green Climate Fund (CABEI, CAF, IICA).
