As part of the ongoing UNFCCC negotiations, ICLEI held a side event on 4 June. Representing national government, Farhan Helmy, Indonesia’s Secretary of Mitigation Working Group at National Council on Climate, presented progress made and challenges which remain in climate action.
“Getting consensus and engagement with the national government is our greatest challenge. Diverse actors have different policy targets. It’s very important to have a transparent process that we can report to. We hope the Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) and the registry could be a strategic entry point for engaging more actors,” said Helmy, adding that ICLEI, by acting as the focal point for LGMA in international negotiations and networking with national governments, has given them more confidence and opportunities to engage environmental stakeholders at the local and subnational levels (source: http://www.iclei.org/details/article/iclei-updates-climate-negotiators-on-global-progress-in-local-climate-action.html?tx_ttnews%5BbackPid%5D=2&cHash=c72cc5a0404cff8baca27d1e7e64a517)
