Based on the experiences and learnings from the evidence-based advocacy for Eco village development, the current project sets out to identify opportunities for scaling up EVD practices to national scale. The project seeks to influence the climate change agenda within the UNFCCC Paris Agreement implementation and the development agenda with UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The activities include conducting advocacy at sub-national, national and international/regional level to make it happen within a relatively short time. The advocacy strategies are based on national priorities and policies thus are customised for each partner country. The project engages policymakers, climate negotiators, members of local government units, media, youth groups, women’s organisations and academia.
The project duration is from April 2017 to June 2018. The partners of the project are:
- INFORSE South Asia (represented by INSEDA, WAFD (India), IDEA (Sri Lanka), CRT/N (Nepal) and Grameen Shakti (Bangladesh)
