Consultation workshop - Community based climate change initiatives in Vietnam


CCWG is documenting around 20 outstanding best practices of community based climate change initiatives (CBCCIs) of CCWG’s members (not only adaptation initiatives, but also welcome mitigation ones or synergy between adaptation & mitigation) in order to target policy makers to demonstrate that the network generates high quality and pertinent input for climate change policy planning and implementation. The synthesis report is expected to be a tool for climate change advocacy which will be launched during COP 21 in Paris.


To identify the most pertinent CBCCIs in Vietnam and initiate the information collection and writing process. This is consultation & writing workshop facilitated by Mr. Koos Neefjes – external climate change expert in Hanoi with below information:

Time: 1.30-5pm, Friday 18 September 2015

Venue: Meeting hall A5, Military Guest House, 33A Pham Ngu Lao street, Hanoi

Facilitator: Mr. Koos Neefjes 


The detail agenda is as below:


1.       Discuss and agree the analytical framework (presentation, posting ideas,  plenary discussion)

2.       Brainstorm CBCCI cases that might be documented (small groups, teams)

3.       Select to-be-documented CBCCIs (plenary scoring, ranking)

4.       Discuss and agree template for initial write up (plenary)

5.       Locate and share documentation sources for each CBCCI (small groups, teams)

6.       Initiate outlining of the cases (small groups, teams)


a)      The writing of the CBCCI cases will be initiated here and some CCWG members will be invited to provide more “raw text” after the workshop, but final writing/ editing done by the external expert.

b)      Participants are invited to bring their laptops, including files with case material regarding climate change work that their organisations have been doing over the past years

c)       The documentation sources should allow for triangulation, meaning that at least some of the information must come from different and/or independent sources in order to increase the quality and trustworthiness of the analysis.
