Introduction

Commitment #3 of the Climate and Environment Charter 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. We need to support and empower local communities so they can be better prepared for the impacts of climate change and environmental risks. On 17  March, ICVA and PHAP, held a webinar on Embracing the leadership of local actors and communities in climate action.

This webinar provided insight on the following:

  • How NGOs and local communities are working together to support local leadership in climate action.
  • How we can ensure meaningful and inclusive participation and leadership of local actors and people we serve are part of the design, management, implementation and evaluation of programmes.
  • What we can do to better promote local leadership in the light of climate change and how to improve our programmes accordingly.
  • What we can learn from local, traditional, and indigenous knowledge which can be replicated in other contexts.
