Capacity-Building Day

11 December 2018 / 9:00 –17:00

PCCB Capacity-Building Hub / RYSY Meeting Room 24 - Area E

Today, global communities are moving inevitably towards a consensus on climate change and the need to reduce greenhouse gases as well as the need for adequate capacity for mitigation and adaption to the changing climate. As such, the article 11 of the Paris Agreement has clearly identified capacity-building as a pathway towards achieving the agreement climate goals and as a fundamental element for the engagement of all in climate actions.

As such, the Second Annual Capacity-Building Day 2018 organized as a one-day event during COP24, aims to respond to the need of scaling up global climate capacity-building by bringing together diverse communities of practice to have in-depth discussions on building national capacity to implement low emissions and climate resilient development strategies.

The event provides an opportunity for diverse communities of practice across regions to learn from successes, share knowledge and best practices and network with one another. The event is for COP24 attendees who are working on capacity-building or interested in capacity-building issues under the Convention.
