Involving the local government representatives in planning and implementation is central to the locally led adaptation process. Engaging local government produces a great synergic impact in building resilience through identifying the risk, vulnerabilities and actions using the community and local agencies’ funds and resources. It is a noble process to address a problem at the source, using the existing and external resources. This session will focus on identifying the past and existing gaps and challenges in making the system more effective and share two best practices. There will be an opportunity to listen to local government representatives. Additionally, it will arrange an exciting dialogue between local government practitioners and policymakers, giving a clearer picture of the existing practices and policies.
