1. How do international climate agreements help EVD and other local solutions? And how can international cooperation help to unleash the climate and development potentials of local solutions?
2. How to strengthen the promotion of EVD and other local solutions with international cooperation and related policies (30 min)
Eco-Village Development is a concept that combines a number of local solutions that assist villagers in South Asia with solutions for better access to energy and other development aspects in ways that contribute to climate actions and a development towards a low-carbon society. To increase climate action, these local solutions should be the centre-stage of climate policies and international climate cooperation. At this webinar we will highlight how these local solutions can contribute to reduce emissions and to other climate objectives. The webinar will also include a status of how local solutions can be prioritised in the implementation of the Paris Agreement and in national climate plans after the decisions at climate COP27 in November 2022. The last part of the webinar will be an open debate, where all participants are invited to comment, ask questions etc.
The webinar is organised by International Network for Sustainable Energy – South Asia, Climate Action Network South Asia and partners including INSEDA, India; Grameen Shakti, Bangladesh; CRT Nepal, IDEA Sri Lanka, INFORSE and DIB, Denmark with support from Civil Society in Development (CISU), Denmark.
