    Thursday, October 26

    8:30-9:30 Colombia |3:30-4:30 Rome| 9:30-10:30 Boston| 20:30-21:30 Bangkok

    In this webinar, experts from the Latin American and Caribbean Climate Finance Group (GFLAC), UNDP and the National Planning Department of Colombia, will share insights and lessons learned from a study conducted by the joint UNDP-FAO NAP-Ag Programme (NAP-Ag) in partnership with GFLAC on tracking domestic climate finance. The study and webinar sessions will focus on adaptation climate financial flows in six countries: Colombia, Guatemala, Kenya, Nepal, The Philippines and Zambia.

    Climate finance is a crucial element for the implementation of more effective climate actions and the goals outlined by the Paris Agreement and 2030 Agenda. In order to understand the financing gaps and the financial opportunities available to developing countries to fund climate resiliency efforts, it is important to understand the levels of funding available through global climate funds and domestic sources. In an effort to increase the transparency of climate finances, countries worldwide are starting to track both domestic and international finance flows. This is an important step to comply with the Paris Agreement’s Transparency Initiative.

    This webinar is presented through the Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans Programme (NAP-Ag), an initiative jointly led by UNDP and FAO, with funding from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety.

    Webinar Objectives

    • Present the results of the study conducted by the NAP-Ag Programme regarding domestic climate finance, particularly adaptation climate flows in six countries: Colombia, Guatemala, Kenya, Nepal, The Philippines and Zambia.
    • Discuss the challenges and the lessons learned in this study to provide inputs and recommendations for the actual process of the negotiation under UNFCCC.
    • Receive inputs from participants to further strengthen the results and support the work related to tracking climate finance at the national level.

    About this Event

    FAO and UNDP partner in support of gender mainstreaming in adaptation for agriculture

    Light lunch and coffee will be served.

    This side event is designed to spark discussion on successful and transformative approaches that can be scaled up and replicated in countries, including in Small Island Developing States, to achieve the system-wide impacts needed that will transform gender and climate change commitments into concrete results and benefits for rural populations.

    The event will feature country speakers providing insights based on national experiences in mainstreaming gender in adaptation for agricultural development, in line with the UNFCCC Gender Action Plan. Panelists will include representatives from Guyana, Kenya, Tonga and Uruguay.

    Audience participation will be encouraged to discuss gender-transformative approaches to adaptation in agriculture.

    This event is organized through the 11-country program Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag). The programme supports partner countries to identify and integrate climate adaptation measures for the agricultural sectors into relevant national planning and budgeting processes. The programme is funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), through its International Climate Initiative (IKI).
