The impacts of climate change demand urgent action. There has been considerable attention on climate mitigation ambition in the lead up to COP26, with some strong commitments coming through and more expected.
But what about adaptation and resilience? As we move towards COP26, what should our adaptation ambition look like and what more is needed in 2021 to drive a strong post-COP26 adaptation agenda?Strong adaptation commitments need to include a range of matters to have the best chance of success. This includes ensuring quantity and quality of financing and resourcing, increasing transparency and accountability, enabling locally-led actions by people and communities most affected by climate impacts, and leveraging the power of nature to drive resilience for both local communities and the environment. The world is up against the clock to design and commit to strong and enduring adaptation commitments. How do we ensure we get there at COP26?
