GCCA+ side event at COP 20 to address climate change resilience, policy dialogue The GCCA+ will host a side event during the 20th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Lima –“Building resilience to climate change in vulnerable countries and promoting dialogue on international climate change policy towards 2015 and beyond".

 

The European Union (EU) established the Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) in 2007 to strengthen dialogue and cooperation on climate change issues. The Alliance supports the most vulnerable to climate change challenges, notably Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs).

When the GCCA started in 2008, the Alliance was working in just four pilot countries. Today, it supports 51 programmes in 38 countries, 8 regions and sub-regions and at the global level with a budget of over € 300 million.  In 2014, a new phase of the GCCA, the GCCA+ flagship initiative, began in line with the European Commission’s new Multiannual Financial Framework (2014-2020). The side event will be an opportunity to present experiences of the GCCA and perspective for the GCCA+.

The side event will highlight our initiatives to enhance dialogue and exchange of experience to strengthen vulnerable countries' preparation to international climate negotiations, and to provide technical support to address climate change
