1st annual Gobeshona Global Conference


18 – 24 January 2021, 9:00

This event will bring together researchers as well as practitioners and supporters of LLA under one platform to focus on learning and measuring progress locally, nationally and globally, each year and track progress year on year. The aim is to stimulate actions, inspire people to start their own initiatives, and encourage collaborations.

Event description:

GOBESHONA as always provides an opportunity to bring together a distinguished and multidisciplinary group of scholars, policy-makers, researchers and practitioners from around the world to share their knowledge, research, and practical experiences on climate change issues with a broad range of themes, focusing on Locally Led Adaptation (LLA) across different geographical regions.

Starting from January 2021, the seven-day long annual Gobeshona Global Conference on Locally Led Adaptation will be hosted by the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) online.

The aim of the Gobeshona Global Conference, from 2021 onwards, will be to stimulate actions amongst the participants, inspire people to start their own initiatives (through research or practice) and encourage collaborations; which they will take forward between conferences and come back each year to report on their progress.
