Building Climate Resilience together: Race for Resilience along shared Marrakech Partnership pathways.
Organizer: GRP / CRN + FAO/A2R *this session is part of the Development & Climate Days
|This event will focus on the need for ambitious actions to build resilience, identify what can be done in the run-up to COP26, and how to set up a decade of action. Nigel Topping, the UK High Level Climate Champion, will share plans on the Race for Resilience, a complementary campaign to Race to Zero. This session is held with the aim to further support the planned campaign and to collect further reflections from the broader audience in line with the recently updated MPGCA Adaptation and Resilience pathway which supports the collective vision: By 2050 we all live in a 1.5 degree warmer world where all regions, countries, cities, businesses communities and individuals THRIVE in the face of multiple risks, uncertainty and threats posed by climate change.|
