Still to come!
Suranjana Gupta @HuairouConnect doesn't beat around the bush: trainings and small-scale interventions don't do anything for anyone. @CommonsIDC
Asked about the challenges grassroots organisations face in making their groups heard, .@HuairouConnect's Suranjana Gupta tells us that there is insufficient adaptation of funding to the needs of marginalised groups - many of which are inventive and ready to respond.
Very happy that these two brilliant witnesses were called to speak in front of the Committee about the challenges and realities of local people and grassroots organisations in trying to implement resilience projects and approaches.
This concludes Part 2 of our session. We would like to thank .@AOSISChair’s H.E. Ms Diann Black-Layne and #LDC Group Representative & .#UNFCCC AC's Co-Chair .@Cecilia28128556 🌏 We will now hear from .@HuairouConnect's Suranjana Gupta & .@juliusngoma

Yes - if we addressed unsustainable, unjust and uneven development we would probably go more than halfway toward addressing the risk associated with climate change - and in this process probably also reduce ghg emissions.
.@schipper_lisa tells us that climate change per se is not the main problem, rather "unjust, uneven and unsustainable climate change is". #UNFCCC's Dr Sgobbi adds that participants should share not just best practice & successes but also failures as both provide important lessons
MP Chris Law asks whether cuts in UK aid have damaged the UK's credibility ahead of COP26 - absolutely.
👉 Join us TODAY from 2.30pm for our 1st session on COP26 & climate change🌍 We'll hear from #UNFCCC AC’s Dr Sgobbi, .@schipper_lisa, #LDC Group's .@Cecilia28128556, .@AOSISChair's HE Diann Black-Layne, .@HuairouConnect's Suranjana Gupta & .@juliusngoma
Critically important about how 'capacity' is not built in country - by pulling @GCRF funding, building knowledge that could help with capacity in country is even less possible.
#LDC Group's .@Cecilia28128556 tells us that "capacity building does not build capacity at national level" as it is short lived with knowledge & expertise leaving with the consultants when they do. If expertise is not created at national level, "we will have LDCs for a long time"
