Putting the support and empowerment of women, civil society, youth, Indigenous peoples, people with disabilities, and the most vulnerable and marginalized communities at the heart of the Race to Resilience is critical to ensuring a just and effective global climate action, says Hajrah Waqas, Climate Champions’ Resilience Youth Fellow.
These are the adaptation actions required to protect vulnerable communities from worsening climate impacts
At COP27, the Presidency announced the Sharm El Sheikh Adaptation Agenda to build climate resilience for 4 billion by 2030. The Sharm El Sheikh Adaptation Agenda is a comprehensive, shared agenda to rally global action around 30 adaptation outcomes that are needed to address the adaptation gap and achieve a resilient world by 2030. The Agenda will accelerate transformative actions by countries, regions, cities, businesses, investors and civil society to adapt to the acute climate hazards facing vulnerable communities.
Recognising the systems-level transformations required to respond to local climate contexts, needs and risks, the Climate Champions team have co-created technical reports that detail the adaptation actions required to protect vulnerable communities to rising climate hazards.
