DWF is implementing the FIGCCC project, which aims to support an environment where climate change planning, policy, and investment decisions are being made with the meaningful engagement of Civil Society Organisation (CSOs). The project, which is co-funded by the European Union, will host its first Steering Committee meeting on 17 October 2022.
The Steering Committee is the central platform through which DWF promotes the coordination between private, public and civil society actions. Since the project’s inception, this first meeting will serve introductory and exploratory purposes. In line with the project’s overall theme, the first meeting is centred around community participation in the public and private sectors. The aim is to explore the thematic information gaps and possible partnership opportunities in developing more significant insights and understanding of participatory climate change-related policy-making and private sector investment decisions.
Broadly the Steering Committee meeting is aimed at:
- Guiding information management and research
- Developing a Communication and Dissemination strategy
- Supporting participatory development of mandated climate change policy
The various ideas raised in discussions since the project’s inception will be presented and unpacked in more detail. The aim is to build consensus around if and how to explore the identified research gaps further and map out potential lead partners and collaborators in the renewable energy, governance and development areas.
“Integrating community priorities into municipal integrated development planning, and the socio-economic development (SED) investments of independent power producers (IPPs) – what are the opportunities, what are the challenges and what are the gaps in information?”
Look out for updates and the next steps ascertained from the meeting on our website and social media pages.
