Dialogue towards a GMS-wide policy platform for climate change adaptation and disaster risk management

SEI is participating in the GMS Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability Program’s (CCESP) first dialogue on 18-20 July in Bangkok. This Asian Development Bank-led dialogue will focus on enhancing fit-for-purpose climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk management (DRM) planning and actions at national and regional levels in the agriculture and water resources sectors.

18 to 20 July 2023
Thailand

Policy dialogue objectives

To achieve this goal, the dialogue will:

  1. Engage with countries in the GMS, national and sectoral stakeholders as well as regional actors and stakeholders involved in planning, implementing, or funding climate change adaptation to identify priorities and share lessons on NAP, EBA and CBA/CBDRM in key critical sectors (i.e., agriculture and water resource sectors).
  2. Explore interests and opportunities on how to set up a regional partnership mechanism to operationalize priorities on NAP, EBA and CBA/CBDRM and attract private sector participation in the GMS.
  3. Identify options and mechanisms to close the gap in financing the priorities on NAP, EBA and CBA/CBDRM.

Expected outcomes

The primary outcomes of the dialogue are:

  1. Identifying priority actions on NAP, EBA and CBA/CBDRM in the agriculture and water resource sectors.
  2. Interests among GMS government agencies, and other national and regional stakeholders in establishing a multistakeholder partnership mechanism to operationalize the national adaptation plans and attract private sector participation.
  3. Identification of financial options to close the adaptation financing gap, and potential selected CCA and DRM priorities for formulating climate investment plans in the agriculture and water resource sectors.

Registration

The policy dialogue is an in-person event and is planned for three days at the Sukosol Hotel in Bangkok. Participants can also join online via Zoom.
