By Climate Champions | November 8, 2022

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.
