The Agenda 2030 with the SDGs and the COP21 Paris Agreement/*[i]*/ [1] on
climate change provide a new strategic framework for international
cooperation. Consequently, the GCCA+ plans to contribute strategically,
financially and technically, over the period 2016-2020, to the efforts of
LDCs and SIDS parties to address these challenges.

*A year after the launch of the GCCA+*, and as experiences from the GCCA,
other programmes and the recent COP21 Paris Agreement accumulate across the
globe, it is important that the GCCA+ ensures that lesson learning is an
integral part of the development process and that knowledge generated from
its implementation is shared across countries and regions and with key
stakeholders and development partners. *The GCCA+ Global Learning Event will
explore how experience on the ground influences policy development and
vice-versa on local, national and international scales.*

The aim of the GCCA+ GLE2016 will be to:

(i)to share past GCCA and current GCCA+ best practices and challenges to
scaling-up and increasing impacts amongst beneficiaries and potential donors;

(ii)to present recent and updated climate strategies and examples across
various development sectors and actors such as on INDCs, NAPs, engagement
with new stakeholders, new tools and approaches

(iii)to extract conclusions for the GCCA+.

[i] [2] On April 22nd, 2016, 155 countries committed to sign the Paris
Agreement on Climate Change.
