These sessions will stimulate actions amongst the participants and shall provide networking opportunities amongst like-minded groups.

Conference Aim

Following the success of three annual Gobeshona Global Conferences we are back again with the 4th annual Gobeshona Global Conference and like last year the virtual conference will focus on Monitoring Locally-Led Adaptation and Resilience.
This year’s Gobeshona Global Conference will be focused towards learning and collaboration around the impactful 8 principles for locally-led adaptation and resilience. Many organizations and governments embrace these principles. The conference extends a warm invitation to all these signatories.
Come share your experiences! Gobeshona wants to showcase how you’re implementing the 8 principles, your methods for monitoring progress, andthe valuable lessons you’ve learned along the way. This exchange of knowledge, experience and best practices holds immense potential for all participants, fostering a collective understanding of how to effectively put these principles into action.
Therefore, the 2024 Gobeshona Global Conference stands as a platform for shared learning on monitoring locally-led adaptation and resilience. By uniting voices from across the globe, it can compel the movement towards a more effective approach to tackling climate change at the community level. So join the conversation, share your journey, and learn from others –together, we can navigate the path towards a sustainable future.

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 with 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 01st March – 08th March 2024!!!

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