Development and Climate Days at COP 17

3-4 December 2011 | Durban, South Africa

Highlights from Sunday, 4 December 2011
Development and Climate days at COP17 Development and Climate Days at COP 17 opened its second and final day on Sunday morning, 4 December 2011. Participants first participated in networking brunch, then met in four sessions. The first session examined information needs and use in different approaches to adaptation, with a stress on ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) and community-based adaptation (CBA). The second session looked at the realities and politics of adaptive decision-making, which included discussions about the role of parliamentarians in adaptation planning. A third session focused on adaptive decision-making in cities, and included a discussion of the Asian Cities Climate Change Resilience Network (ACCCRN) and a look at how Durban conducts adaptive decision-making.

The fourth and closing session consisted of a high-level panel on “Drawing Lessons for National Adaptation Planning,” which tried to address how the two days of discussion about adaptation practice may feed into the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) processes. Panellists included the Chair of the Least Developed Countries Group, top climate officials for Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan, the head of the Climate Change, Biodiversity and Development Division of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and the Director of the Office for Climate Change of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

The day’s formal proceedings ended at 6:36 pm, after which participants watched the finalists of a film competition sponsored by the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN).
