Module 4 – Coming Home, Continuing the Journey

Welcome to the ACLP Module 4.

This is the final Module of the ACLP 2021. In this module, participants in their sub-group will present Change Project.  Through the Change Project, the sub-group will present their formulation of lessons learnt that is useful to promote climate-smart practices in land use sectors as a contribution to the achievement of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Module 4 will refresh the understanding on initiating and enacting changes in the regional context by learning from others’ Change Project on climate-smart practices. The participants are going to conclude their leadership journey in the programme and welcome the upcoming voyage beyond the programme.

ACLP 2021

The ACLP is designed as a contribution to the work of the ASEAN Climate Resilience Network (ASEAN-CRN). This year’s guiding theme is  Promoting Climate-Smart Land Use for Implementing Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).

The ACLP is being supported by the Climate Smart Land Use in ASEAN (CSLU) project, which receives funding from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and is implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in close cooperation with the ASEAN Secretariat. It is being organised in collaboration with the Southeast Asian Regional Centre for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA) and will be facilitated by experienced coaches specialised in leadership and change theory.
