The Eco Village Development (EVD) is seen as an alternate pathway towards sustainable development of villages as a unit, and has been established through the demonstration villages set up in diverse socioeconomic, geographic and climatic conditions across Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka and India. EVD is a basket of local solutions on renewable energy, accompanied with community mobilization, involvement of women and children and appropriate training and capacity building bringing lasting changes in communities. EVD promotes climate action by reducing GHG emission and building adaptive capacity of vulnerable communities.The EVD approach has been useful to communities where the local solutions were implemented resulting in augmented capacity of communities and improved livelihood.
The solution being implemented at village level culminated into a repository with an aim to support evidence based climate policy advocacy and to benefit other actors by using the solutions locally. The webinar seeks to introduce the repository and invite similar local solutions from CSOs in the South Asia region to enrich the repository further.
Webinar on “Repository of Local Climate Solutions – A Precursor to Regional Collaboration and Advocacy” organised by Eco Village Development project partners of Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka and India. CANSA is involved as a regional partner in the project along with INFORSE South Asia.
