In 2019, the ASEAN-Climatetrainsilience Network (CRN), as chaired by Thailand’s Department of Agriculture, convened its annual meeting, hosted by the Laos National Agriculture and Forestry Research Institute (NAFRI) on 28 – 29 May 2019 in Vientiane.
The aim of the meeting was to intensify implementation of joint strategies to access various support mechanisms (related to climate financing, Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture, Sustainable Development Goals), and enhance the engagement with climate governance frameworks such as the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) for wider implementation of CRN’s workplans.
It was complemented by an additional workshop day that will allow policy-makers from the climate and the agriculture sphere to prepare for the Bonn Climate Change Conference (SBSTA 50| SBI 50) in June 2019 and specifically the processes related to the Koronivia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA).
