During this knowledge sharing session, Utilities 2.0 project implementing partners will share how they built and strengthened an unusual partnership that has been key to the success of the integrated energy project, the challenges faced and lessons learned for scaling and replication.
They look forward to your attendance.
Time: 3.30PM – 5.00PM EAT (+3 GMT)
The IPCC 6th Assessment report indicates the impacts of climate change that are already being felt around the Earth. The pace of this change is accelerating, and we must act now to avoid the worst consequences. As development practitioners, we know that these impacts will be felt the greatest by the most vulnerable people. COP26 showed a renewed commitment to 1.5%, with an outpouring of new initiatives and commitments from national governments and business leaders. Climate change advocates are calling for “systems change” as the only way to achieve real, transformational progress. This training session will cover key questions, including: How can climate change considerations be incorporated under the key pillars of market systems development? What is our role as development practitioners to help facilitate these changes in the countries where we work? How can we help market actors incorporate uncertainty related to climate change when planning for future realities in ways that increase resilience, sustainability, and inclusivity? The training will utilize a combination of formal classroom materials, facilitated discussions, and real-world case studies from recognized thought leaders.
(1:00 – 4:30 pm UTC)
Rural households in low- and middle-income countries working in the agriculture sector feed much of the world, bear little responsibility for driving climate change, and are being disproportionately impacted by climate-related shocks. Climate finance represents a critical opportunity to bring investment and innovations to agricultural settings to improve resilience and low-carbon development.
Join an all-star panel of climate investors and researchers, moderated by Jonathan Phillips from Duke University, for a discussion about the climate mitigation and adaptation impacts of low-carbon agricultural technologies and enterprises, and how pioneering models aim to leverage those impacts to mobilize climate finance for scale.
