Durban Forum

The 3rd meeting of the Durban Forum on Capacity-building took place during the Bonn Climate Change Conference in June 2014. Designed as a platform for sharing information on ongoing activities and good practices on capacity-building, the Durban Forum this year was an extraordinary opportunity to learn about success stories and innovative approaches to create enabling environments and enhance the readiness of developing countries to undertake adaptation and mitigation activities.

 
The 3rd meeting of the Durban Forum on Capacity-building convened on 12 and 13 June with the opening remarks of SBI Chair Mr. Amena Yauvoli and UNFCCC Executive-Secretary Christiana Figueres.

In her opening remarks UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres addressed the audience with inspiring words on the importance of capacity-building within the UNFCCC process and the need for a democratization of climate action on the ground which can be achieved through building capacity for resilience.

In the course of its three sessions, co-facilitated by Ian Fry (Tuvalu) and Angela Kallhauge (Sweden), participants had the possibility of a direct interaction with chairs and members of adaptation, technology and finance institutions established under the Convention and under the Kyoto Protocol, the Chair of the CDM executive Board, experts and practitioners from regional and international institutions and members of the academia. Presentations and statements were a springboard for dynamic debates and food-for-thought takeaways.
