Webinar 20 April: Failure and off-grid energy access: Why failure matters to development

Smart Village

WEBINAR

Failure & off-grid energy access: Why failure matters to development

Join The Low Carbon Energy for Development Network and Smart Villages on

Wednesday, 20 April 2016, 9am UK time (10am CEST)

To register, click here

“Failure” – the word usually carries a negative connotation. But for entrepreneurs, policymakers, and NGOs working to provide energy access to people in the “last mile”, failure can actually provide important lessons. Is failure an important ingredient to success?

In this webinar, we’ll gather experts who will talk openly about their experiences with failure from a variety of angles and why failure is actually an important element in successfully delivering energy access to remote communities.

What have they learned from these so-called “failures”? Must one fail to succeed? Most importantly, how can these stories of failure (and success) help remote villages to access energy, education, healthcare, etc.?

Our webinar series is a little different: each expert will speak for 10 minutes and will focus on their on-the-ground experience using photos to tell their story.

Speakers:

Simon Batchelor, Director of Gamos, Ltd. and Impact and Learning Team Manager, Institute of Development Studies

Stewart Craine, Managing Director of VIA – Village Infrastructure Angels

Heidi Hafes, Communications and Business Manager, Shell Foundation

About LCEDN

The Low Carbon Energy for Development Network (LCEDN) brings together researchers, policy-makers and practitioners from across the United Kingdom to expand research capacity around low-carbon development in the countries of the Global South.

It links existing expertise in international development, renewable energy transitions and science and technology studies in order to enhance and support interdisciplinary research, learning and policy-formation for this increasingly important and rapidly changing field.

The LCEDN comprises internationally-renowned universities and thriving energy research institutes, alongside partnerships with the UK’s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and expanding worldwide associations. This enables a unique environment for dialogue, discussion and the generation of ideas for funding.

About Smart Villages

The Smart Villages Initiative is a global initiative that aims to provide policymakers, donors, and development agencies concerned with rural energy access across the Global South with new insights on the real barriers to energy access in villages in developing countries – technological, financial and political – and how they can be overcome. We are have chosen to focus on remote off-grid villages, where local solutions (home- or institution-based systems, and mini-grids) are both more realistic and cheaper than national grid extension. Our concern is to ensure that energy access results in development and the creation of ‘smart villages’ in which rural communities have access to healthcare, education, clean water, ICT, and livelihoods.

Dear all,

We are writing to inform you that, due to a number of cancellations last week, we will have to postpone the MADE advocacy webinar scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday 12 April. We have recently started the process of developing national CSO shadow reports for SDG implementation and this is being discussed by individual skype meetings with a number of national NGOs and coalitions. Once we have developed these national CSO action plans, we will bring this together in a webinar. The date and time will be announced in due course.

Invitation to 12 April, 2016 MADE Advocacy Webinar and updates on SDG Indicators and Shadow Reporting on SDG implementation

MADE Invitation to 12 April MADE Advocacy Webinar and updates on SDG Indicators and Shadow Reporting on SDG implementation

The Hague, 1 April 2016

Dear friends and colleagues,

Warm greetings from The Hague! I hope this email finds you well.

In this update you can find the latest developments with regard to the SDG indicators, the third IAEG-SDG meeting and the CSO Shadow Reporting on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. We would also like to invite you to our next webinar on Tuesday 12 April 16:00 CET (GMT +1).

30 March – 1 April 3th IEAG-SDG meeting in Mexico
CSOs have collectively complained about access and participation of civil society at the previous IEAG meeting in Bangkok, including about lack of speaking time and hardly any contact or meetings with the co-chairs etc. At the third IAEG-SDG meeting in Mexico City the agenda allows for more CSO interaction and a total of 52 stakeholders have been invited to participate which includes academia and NGOs. Several of our colleagues are participating in the meeting whereas others make use of this opportunity by publishing common statements, for example on data disaggregation.

A new Tier System
One of the main topics of the meeting is the proposed tier system, which groups all indicators into three tiers, depending on the level of agreement on methodology and the development and availability of data. The preliminary document is based on the consultation of various international agencies, organisations and entities and the review of the Secretariat (United Nation Statistics Division) of the IAEG-SDG itself, sometimes differing in opinion. The document also mentions several agencies who would be made responsible for compiling data at the global level and for global reporting. The tiers are defined as followed:

Tier 1: Indicator conceptually clear, established methodology and standards available   and data regularly produced by countries.
Tier 2: Indicator conceptually clear, established methodology and standards available but data are not regularly produced by countries.
Tier 3: Indicator for which there are no established methodology and standards or methodology/standards are being developed/tested

The preliminary document sees part of the migration-related indicators placed in all three tiers, with several differences in opinion highlighted by the international consultation and the secretariat. The outcome of the discussions at the IAEG-SDG meeting will determine which indicators end up in the first two tiers and which indicators in the third tier. The third tier indicators will likely demand our special attention, as the documents states they “may be changed moving forward, based on discussions at the third meeting of the IAEG-SDG and in the future”.

47th meeting of the Statistical Commission
In our Webinar of 15 March we discussed the agenda and outcome of the 47th meeting of the Statistical Commission on 8 – 11 March. As we already expected, the final proposed list of indicators was accepted, although several concerns were raised by the member states like the disaggregation of data, on the need for national ownership, coordination between National Statistical Offices, etc. The PowerPoint presentation of the webinar contains more information on the meeting of the Statistical commission and also compiles the Voluntary National Reviews format and the long term thematic review plan of the High Level Political Forum (HLPF).

Bringing coherence to the Follow-up and Review of the 2030 Agenda
With 17 goals, 169 targets and 230 indicators the 2030 Agenda has embraced the inclusive and holistic approach necessary for bringing about global sustainable development. The Secretary-General’s report Critical milestones towards coherent, efficient and inclusive follow-up and review at the global level highlighted the role of the HLPF in maintaining this holistic approach and also stressed the important role major stakeholders like civil society have to play in contributing to the review and follow-up of the SDGs. To help streamline all inputs, the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) has published an extensive explainer on the review and follow up system. Although underlining the importance of the multi-stakeholder approach, IISD warns against the risk of ‘cacophony’ where the many different voices and perspectives “overwhelm the HLPF and ensure that its debates are confined to generalities”. To prevent this, the paper gives an overview of  the review process of the HLPF and a guideline and template for ‘inputs to the HLPF’.

Shadow Report Work in Progress
These guidelines are well reflected in our own template “Draft Outline for CSO Shadow Reporting on SDG Implementation“. The process for this is well on its way with alliances and coalitions in eight countries being formed and national progress and bottlenecks for implementation being identified. The timeline for the CSO shadow report is as follows:

  • 15 April: Plan of action ready, coalition formed and topics of CSO shadow reports and related SDG targets identified.
  • 30 May: First Draft of CSO Shadow report
  • 15 June: Second draft of CSO Shadow report

If you also wish to participate and/or contribute to your national CSO shadow report, please sign-up for the 12 April Advocacy Webinar or contact us at bvd@cordaid.nl.

One example of a national coalition of CSOs in shadow reporting on SDG implementation can be found in Germany, where German civil society has adopted a joint position regarding the German implementation of the 2030 agenda. Many other examples of Advocacy papers, statements and videos regarding Stakeholder advocacy for National implementation of the 2030 Agenda can be found at the Sustainable Development Knowledge Platform.

Next advocacy webinar

We will be further discussing the outcomes of the third IAEG-SDG meeting in Mexico, the national implementation of the 2030 agenda at the next Advocacy webinar on 12 April. The webinar is open for civil society organisations that are active in SDG lobby and advocacy, or wish to become involved. To join, pleaseregister via this link, by 10 April latest, we will send you the login details on Monday 11 April.. The webinar will start on Tuesday 15 March 16:00 CET(GMT +1).

Webinar: Funding the SDGs Through Fossil Fuel Subsidy Reform

Dear all,
The International Institute for Sustainable Development is hosting a webinar to discuss the role of fossil fuel subsidy reform in supporting the Sustainable Development Goals. Join us on September 22, 2015 at:
  • 15.00 (Geneva)
  • 20.00 (Jakarta)
  • 09.00 (Washington)

Register here. Space is limited.

Fossil fuel subsidy reform is included within the Sustainable Development Goals as a key fiscal policy tool for domestic resource mobilisation to help fund national priorities. Fossil fuel subsidies are estimated around US$ 550 billion in 2013. This is four times the level of development assistance from the OECD and three and a half times larger than the estimated cost of financing basic social protection, universal health and education coverage for the poorest. A growing number of governments are recognising that they need to be phased out through national action and re-investment of savings towards sustainable development and are supporting an international communique calling for the removal of subsidies to fossil fuels. This hour long webinar will seek to explore the links between fossil fuel subsidy reform and the opportunities for financing the Sustainable Development Goals.

Speakers:

  • Fabby Tumiwa, Executive Director, Institute for Essential Services Reform, Indonesia.
  • Laura Merrill, Senior Researcher IISD-GSI and author of the report ‘Financing the Sustainable Development Goals through Fossil Fuel Subsidy Reform.’
  • Vangelis Vitalis, Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) New Zealand.

The Q&A session will be moderated by Peter Wooders, Group Director Energy, IISD. Participation in the webinar is free of charge.

If you would like to submit a question, please email lmerrill@iisd.org or use the chat function during the webinar.

To support the communiqué see the Friends of Fossil Fuel Subsidy Reform Communiqué.

To see how reform of fossil fuel subsidies can finance sustainable development see the report, ”Financing the Sustainable Development Goals Through Fossil-fuel Subsidy Reform: Opportunities in Southeast Asia, India and China.”

LEDS GP Transport Webinar: How the Built Environment Influences Who Rides on Bus Rapid Transit

How the Built Environment Influences Who Rides on Bus Rapid Transit  (May 14 English Presentation / May 15 Spanish Presentation)

El boom de los sistemas integrados de transporte masivo de buses rápidos tipo BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) durante los últimos 15 años ha sido un paso significativo para alcanzar un transporte urbano sostenible, particularmente en ciudades de rápido crecimiento. Recientemente se ha generado un interés en evaluar como el espacio construido –el cual incluye factores como infraestructura para peatones y la densidad – afecta el número de pasajeros en diferentes tipos de corredores de sistemas tipo BRT. Sin embargo, poco se sabe acerca de la relación entre el espacio construido y el número de pasajeros en sistemas tipo BRT, considerando que los estudios existentes han examinado generalmente los impactos del espacio construido en el número de pasajeros en sistemas férreos como los trenes ligeros, tranvías y metros.  Lo anterior plantea un vacío en cuanto al conocimiento de dicha relación,  dado que usualmente se asume que únicamente la densidad poblacional determina el número de pasajeros en sistemas tipo BRT.

Recientes investigaciones buscan llenar dicho vacío al explorar cómo el espacio construido influye en el número de pasajeros que abordan sistemas tipo BRT a través del análisis de esta relación al nivel de estación. Este webinar presenta los resultados del proyecto de investigación “Examinando la relación entre el número de pasajeros en sistemas tipo BRT y el espacio construido en América Latina” presentado enTransforming Transportation 2015. Esta investigación sugiere que una serie de factores del espacio construido afectan el comportamiento de viajes en los sistemas tipo BRT. El estudio evaluó asociaciones entre el número de pasajeros en sistemas tipo BRT y datos del espacio construido alrededor de 120 estaciones en siete ciudades de América Latina. El estudio concluye que el espacio construido juega un papel significativo explicando el número de pasajeros en sistemas tipo BRT al nivel de estación. Aunque usualmente no son considerados, la mezcla de usos del suelo e infraestructura de transporte no motorizado también juegan un papel importante en esta relación.

The LEDS Global Partnership and The Transport Sector Working Group are hosting a webinar on How the Built Environment Influences Who Rides on Bus Rapid Transit presented by Erik Vergel-Tovar.

The BRT boom over the past 15 years has been a significant step toward achieving sustainable urban transport, particularly in rapidly growing cities. There’s been recent interest in assessing how the built environment—which includes factors like pedestrian infrastructure and density—affects ridership in different types of BRT corridors. However, little is known about the relationship between the built environment and BRT ridership, since existing studies have generally examined the impact of the built environment on transit ridership within metro and light rail systems. This leaves a serious gap in our understanding, as it’s often assumed that population density alone determines BRT ridership.

New research looks to fill this gap by exploring how the built environment influences BRT ridership at the station level. This webinar shows the results of the research project “Examining the relationship between BRT ridership and the built environment in Latin America” presented at Transforming Transportation 2015. This research suggests that a rich array of built environment factors affect BRT travel behavior. The study tested for associations between BRT ridership and built environment data around 120 BRT stations in seven Latin American cities, and concluded that the built environment plays a significant role explaining BRT ridership. Mixed land use and active transport infrastructure play an important but often overlooked role as well.

This webinar will feature a presentation by:

• Erik Vergel-Tovar, PhD Candidate – Department of City and Regional Planning, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session where participants will have the opportunity to ask the panelists about details of the webinar.
