Global Resilience Partnership releases report on their work at COP26
The report synthesises the key overarching messages from their activities at the conference and offers guidance for future actions towards COP27
During during the 2021 COP meeting in Glasgow, the Global Resilience Partnership (GRP), a centre-hosted initiative on resilience and development, co-managed The Resilience Hub together with.
The hub, home to UNFCCC’s Race to Resilience at COP26, sought to advance action on adaptation and resilience at COP26 and beyond. It also provided a strong collective voice on resilience for all those globally who are working to build a more resilient world. The Resilience Hub ran alongside COP26 from 31 October to 12 November 2021.
Five overarching messages
The report by the GRP synthesises the key overarching messages that emerged from the activities of the Resilience Hub:
- Locally Led Adaptation is essential for transformative and equitable adaptation and is ripe for scaling, subject to finance access.
- There is an urgent need to increase the overall availability of quality finance for adaptation and resilience, as well as diversify financial instruments through emphasising grant-based rather than loan-based models.
- Transformative adaptation and resilience require bridging the gaps between knowledge and implementation through knowledge brokering and advancing measurement and learning.
- Nature based Solutions are key to transforming risk into resilience through integrated urban, coastal, and rural climate actions.
- Pragmatic and equitable adaptation and resilience action requires women, youth, disabled, displaced, and Indigenous peoples to be at the heart of design, decision-making, and implementation.
Besides summarising the key overarching messages, the synthesis report also presents findings and insights from the three pillars of Race to Resilience: rural, urban, and coastal. The pillars shaped the programming of the Resilience Hub activities.
The report also includes findings and insights from the ten themes explored during the Hub. Lastly, it aims to help set the direction for future actions towards COP27.
