Description

How can we tailor programmes to best foster climate adaptation and resilience? This interactive chat show at COP22 aims to enhance knowledge on how adaptation programmes can contribute to building climate resilience for the most vulnerable. It assesses evidence at project and community scales, as well as at national and international levels and shares practical tools and methods for prioritising adaptation and resilience efforts in programme design. Panellists  are tasked to identify ways that programmes can be integregated in national policy and planning in a way that contributes to climate resilience at scale, but also addresses local contexts.

This event is in the EU Pavilion which is located in the Blue Zone, where an official UNFCCC pass is required to attend.
