About Gobeshona Global

GOBESHONA as always provides an opportunity to bring together a distinguished and multidisciplinary group of scholars, policy-makers, researchers and practitioners from around the world to share their knowledge, research, and practical experiences on climate change issues with a broad range of themes, focusing on Locally – Led Adaptation Action (LLA) across different geographical regions. Connecting local to global issues, including a particular focus on COP27.

Starting from 27th March 2022, the seven-day long annual Gobeshona Global Conference on Locally Led Adaptation will be hosted by the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) fully online!

This conference will bring together researchers as well as practitioners and supporters of LLA under one platform to focus on Learning and Measuring progress locally, nationally and globally, each year and track progress year on year.

The aim of the Gobeshona Global conference, from 2021 has been to stimulate actions amongst the participants, inspire people to start their own initiatives (through research or practice) and encourage collaborations; which they will take forward between conferences and come back each year to report on their progress.

LOCATION (Fully virtual)

We are pleased to inform you that the Conference has transitioned to an online event.

Sessions will be held virtually through ZOOM (registered participants will be provided a link to attend sessions). 

Having sessions online allows us to include more participants than a physical, in – person conference. It also helps to reduce our carbon footprint as we reduce the travel mileage of participants attending, while still being able to create a thriving ‘community of practice’ on Locally – Led Adaptation issues. 

We intend to have sessions across multiple geographical regions. This year the conference sessions will run for 24 Hours, every day from 27th March – 1st April Jan 2022!!! 

We encourage and welcome all Climate enthusiasts to attend the Conference!!!  

The registration links for the conference will be open soon.
