Intersections with Climate Change in International Development
The BEI ‘Intersections with Climate Change’ event series brings a focus on the intersections of climate change remediation and adaptation with other development priorities. As we re-launch the series for the autumn, our panel will discuss the importance of considering intersections with Climate Change across International Development programming and interventions.
The BEI ‘Intersections with Climate Change’ event series brings a focus on the intersections of climate change remediation and adaptation with other development priorities. Each event provides a platform for dialogue between experts in these different areas and aims to highlight the issues and potential solutions, providing a platform for members and their key stakeholders to showcase the work they are conducting in these spaces and the remedies they are developing for these issues.
In this session, we will take a broad view and touch on a variety of intersections with climate change, providing a platform to discuss how organisations are addressing these in terms of:
Making interventions more sustainable in the face of a changing climate
Working with communities for social climate adaptation
Working with beneficiaries for sustainable outcomes
The role of behaviour change and challenges to sustained commitments
Taking into account co-benefits but also potential threats
Our panel will showcase how they are adapting their approach in response to climate change across their programmes and interventions, relating to various intersections with climate change: health, education, equity, conflict prevention, migration, agriculture, etc.
As usual, we look forward to discussion and Q&A with the audience in the second half of the session.
