Background on the Capacity-building Hub
The Paris Committee on Capacity-building (PCCB) was created in 2015 with the unique mandate to help developing countries identify their capacity-building needs and gaps and to promote the active engagement with a wide range of stakeholders to increase the impact of capacity-building itself.
The Capacity-building Hub is a direct response to the PCCB's mission to enhance coherence and coordination of capacity-building under the Convention and the Paris Agreement, address current and emerging gaps and needs, and facilitate greater awareness of the scope and impact of capacity-building efforts.
Since the 1st Capacity-building Hub Hub at COP24, the Hub has grown exponentially, with over 200 institutions organizing over 100 sessions. With each year, the range of actors involved has broadened and the focus on capacity-building climate action and implementation has developed from a well-laid foundation.
Continuing on this successful path, the 4th Capacity-building Hub seeks to be a source for greater engagement, with a focus on implementation for climate action as the world moves towards a more just and sustainable future.
