Multilevel climate governance in Chile: Webinar and related resources


This webinar from our Subnational Integration Working Group presents Chile’s Institutional Mapping report and sets out how Chile is accelerating climate action through effective multilevel governance.

Improving the coordination of climate action between national and subnational governments is essential for accelerating the transition to climate resilient, low emission economies. Multilevel governance and intersectoral coordination not only increase the probability of achieving more ambitious nationally determined contributions (NDCs), they can also improve synergies between national development objectives and other multilateral agreements, such as the post-2015 Development Agenda or the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.

This webinar provides key insights on Chile’s ‘Institutional Mapping’ report, which depicts the ecosystem of relevant actors in the context of its NDC, National Climate Change Action Plan and other sectoral plans. The report analyzes the frameworks, public policies, and governance processes that affect subnational actors, and looks at institutional incentives, opportunities, gaps and limits that impact the planning and implementation of local climate actions in Chile.

Please note this webinar is in Spanish.
