EVENT: Mitigation, adaptation and finance in Asian countries – Join our webinar series


CDKN Asia Webinar Series

In run up to the COP21, the Parties to the UNFCCC submitted their intended nationally determined contribution (INDC) or national climate pledges to address climate change according to their national circumstances. These contributions comprise both mitigation and adaptation actions, are core to the Paris Agreement, adopted at COP 21 and signed by 180 Parties. All INDCs combined reflect the scale and scope of global commitment for mitigation and adaptation.

The Paris Agreement requires each country to prepare, communicate and maintain its nationally determined contribution (NDC) roughly every five years.  Each successive NDC is expected to be more ambitious and demonstrate progression beyond the Party’s original submission. The Paris Agreement also emphasises the importance of climate finance and multistakeholder cooperation to reach the goal of keeping the global temperature rise below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue further efforts to limit the rise to 1.5°C.

The parties and civil society groups realise that meeting Paris Agreement goals would require better understanding of INDC planning, development, and implementation processes. This three-part webinar series from the CDKN Asia team will present analysis of 18 INDCs from South Asia and South-East Asia in terms of mitigation targets; climate finance; adaptation and social inclusion, particularly gender – to help set the countries’ pledges in comparative perspective.

All webinars will be 60 minutes in length (40 min presentations and 20 min for Q&A)

  1. Under the pressure of necessity and events, I am cooperating in organizing groups and promoting as well, as a contribution for today’s and future’s generation welfare, projects implementation of: 1) Electrification Utilizing Renewable Energy; 2) Sustainable Transport; 3) Biodiversity for a Beautiful World and; 4) Advanced Sustainability of the Built-Environment.

    Undoubtedly, to bring our interest into harmony with nature, the needs of the communities, the needs of investors and other stakeholders I drafted functions of: consulting, construction, trading, economic and environment rehabilitation, enterprise development assistance, and advertising (to function as cooperating company/companies) while interested investors need: executive summary, business plans, and cash-flow projections for the aforementioned projects implementation. Hoping you can cooperation for a successful projects implementation!

  2. Hoping the series of webinars regarding mitigation, adaptation, and climate financing will help guide more in the strategies for a successful projects implementation as ways of cooperating address climate change and ghg emissions reductions.
