Climate Change Practitioners gather in Denpasar to share local innovations and sustainable urban solutions

CityNet held its Climate Leadership Program (CLP) Series 3 on November 18-20, 2019, hosted by Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia. The three-day program featured peer-based exchanges on innovative national and local climate actions, transformative leadership sessions, and development of local actions and prospects for sustainable city to city exchanges. This event was jointly organized by CityNet, Jakarta Capital City Government through the Climate Change Cluster, and Denpasar City as the host city.

In addition to enhancing their leadership capacities, CLP 3 served as a platform for participants to introduce prototypes of projects being implemented in their respective city. These projects introduced promising solutions to a variety of climate issues. These included a Waste to Energy project put forward by Sidoarjo Regency. Denpasar City’s Si Darling Public Transportation project also attracted a lot of interest due to its innovative use of a mobile application connecting the government and businesses to increase public awareness on waste issues.

Discussion on the Urban Innovation Session Marketplace also provided a space for participants to evaluate the project prototypes introduced to them and access with a replicability tool the ease through which they could implement these locally in their cities for their respective context.

Being the third instalment of the program, CLP 3 was also the occasion to see how prototypes introduced in previous CLP have been since replicated. Participants from HELP-O in Sri Lanka presented how they replicated in Galle City learning from Kampon-Iklim Climate City projects that were introduced in CLP 2.

Finally, the workshop also included site visits of best-practices and projects completed by the city of Denpasar. These consisted of Badung Market, a smart heritage market; Tukad Bindu, a community based project river; and Puri Agung Jrokuta, a cultural heritage site.

📣UNITAR CIFAL Jeju is holding a #VirtualWorkshop series on #SocialProtection, with a spotlight on #InformalWorkers. The event will take place on three sessions from March 18-25, at 3 PM KST.

While fighting the spread of #COVID19, countering measures like lockdowns and social distancing have affected informal workers disproportionately, who suffered from a higher risk of falling into extreme #poverty, as their economic activities were severely disrupted by those measures.

Informal workers usually work in poor occupational safety and health surroundings with poor access to social protection services. They are easily exposed to the risk of illness and injury. Even before the pandemic, access to healthcare was almost out of reach for these workers because the cost of such services was far too high for their earning.

This virtual event will discuss various approaches to social protection with a focus on informal workers in the pandemic situation, and explore how social protection can be applied in different contexts. Participants will be given an opportunity to share their own case studies and get engaged in designing #ActionPlans for better implementation of social protection strategies in line with their own national and local context.
