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. 

Starting from January 2021, 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) online. 

This event 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 onwards will be 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. 

ABOUT: Gobeshona Knowledge Platform

Gobeshona is a knowledge-sharing platform, initiated in January 2014 aiming to bring together the national and international Climate research community to encourage sharing and making climate change research effective. 

Interested Institutions that conduct climate change research or those who implement research into use, are welcome to join this platform.

Currently, more than 50 diverse organizations from across the globe, have collaborated to disseminate climate change-related literature, events, opportunities, and ongoing research. Online interaction is encouraged between researchers and other interested parties, to register and connect with others. 

Gobeshona platform seeks to address the quality of research being produced in different countries by encouraging constructive discussion and feedback amongst researchers, making research more meaningful from the inception stage through to the completion stage, and resulting publications become effective for use in response to climatic impacts around the world.
