Devolved climate finance approach forges new ways of working between citizens and state

DAY 2

Devolved climate finance programmes incorporate local knowledge and community priorities into decisions about how climate finance is planned and budgeted. At CBA 12, practitioners will discuss the different components of these programmes, exploring the environment when they are most effective and why, and sharing experiences from several contexts. 

The pilots work by establishing mechanisms that funnel money for climate-resilient development through public financial management systems down to local governments. The approach depends on local communities collaborating with government to take the lead in planning and budgeting funds for adaptation. 

This collaborative approach presents an opportunity to transform the relationship between states and their citizens by empowering communities to make meaningful investment decisions for their own future.

TNRF's diary from knowledge to action: Experience with the Community Land Initiative

While villagers still struggle with using current legal frameworks to access land rights in Tanzania, the government plans to trigger yet another revised national land law. Our team learnt how to help communities make the most of the upcoming legislation. 

In Nyeri, Kenya a community land protection-learning initiative teaches land activists, including two of us from the Tanzania Natural Resource Forum (TNRF) how to help villages access and secure lands using varied approaches.
