The Lead the Change Programme is a product of the Regional Project on Ecosystem-based Adaptation to Climate Change in the high mountainous region of Central Asia, implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) through the International Climate Initiative (IKI). This document synthesizes the learnings from a Leadership Programme conducted in 2017. Its aim is to provide inspiration and practical guidance on how to develop and manage a cross-sectoral leadership development programme in the context of sustainability. It is written for commissioning organisations as well as programme managers and facilitators designing such programmes. Whilst it outlines the concept, methodological approach and design of the programme, it is however not a facilitation guide, but rather works in conjunction with related documents such as the AIZ’s Toolbox Leadership for Global Responsibility and assumes proficiency of the facilitators in the faculties and methodologies outlined.
This study explores how the two leading approaches in water resources management and ecosystem thinking for climate change adaptation – i.e. IWRM and EbA – can be merged to achieve greater climate resilience in watersheds. It entails a conceptual analysis of both approaches and showcases nine practical implementation examples of integrated EbA-IWRM projects around the world. The case studies reveal structural similarities, key lessons, and enabling and inhibiting factors for integrated EbA-IWRM approaches. From this, the study derives and promotes a set of guiding principles for integrated EbA-IWRM projects.
Green recovery is a widely used term for packages of measures addressing the social, economic and political consequences of the Covid-19 crisis in a way that sets the course for a shift towards sustainable and inclusive development, biodiversity protection, resilience and climate neutrality. This paper provides a practical framework that captures the key elements of a green recovery to inform the work of practitioners who seek to support sustainable, inclusive, and resilient recoveries.
Dans le but d’appuyer l’élaboration du dispositif national de S&E de l’adaptation et de l’atténuation aux changements climatiques, un diagnostic des systèmes de S&E existants a été fait au cours de l’année 2019. Cet état des lieux a permis d’identifier des indicateurs de S&E communs pour le Plan National d’Adaptation (PNA) et la Contribution Déterminée au niveau National (CDN), des besoins en renforcement de capacités des acteurs nationaux liés au S&E et des recommandations pour l’opérationnalisation du dispositif de S&E.
Bien que les effets du changement climatique sur la propagation des maladies à transmission vectorielle, hydrique et infectieuse soient bien établis ailleurs, le Togo ne disposait pas encore d’une évaluation concluante de sa vulnérabilité. En 2019, le ministère de la Santé et de l’Hygiène publique, avec le soutien du projet ProSanté de la GIZ, a analysé les impacts des risques climatiques sur le risque de paludisme, de méningite et d’infections respiratoires.
