Lively exchange among the IKI Asia interface projects in November

November offered several opportunities for exchange among IKI Asia interface projects. The first one was a network meeting which took place virtually on 12 November. Major discussion points were the IKI interface concept and the collaboration with BMU in revising this concept. Additionally, the difficulty in including local contributions was discussed. Other agenda items included collaboration with other IKI implementing agencies in China and the new role of APLAK. Dr Alexander FISHER participated in the meeting as the Sino-German Climate Partnership’s director.

The networking meeting was followed by the IKI Focus Week from 19 and 24 November. The BMU invited all IKI interfaces to an exchange in an informal setting. Four sessions were held to share and discuss how the interface can contribute to the updating of both NDCs and LTS, dissemination and implementation of the new IKI gender strategy, and cooperation with private sector and youth initiatives. On the part of the SGCCC, Dr Alexander FISHER participated as the Climate Partnership’s director and Steffen MENZEL joined as the focal point for NDC/LTS and gender.
