Resilience First Events
As an official observer organisation of the UNFCCC Conference of Parties, Resilience First is delighted to present its COP28 programme:
- 3 Dec, 14:00-15:00 GST, Global Climate Action Hub, Blue Zone, COP28, Expo City Dubai:
Enabling Private Finance for Adaptation - Implementation Lab, in collaboration with Resilience Rising, The Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, the Race to Resilience Campaign and the Marrakech Partnership, which will explore practical actions to drive progress on the Sharm El-Sheikh Adaptation Agenda, including nature-based solutions. This roundtable discussion is part of the official COP28 Global Climate Action Programme and will be live streamed for virtual audiences.
As global efforts intensify to deliver the Sharm El-Sheikh goals, the spotlight is on realising the potential of private finance: How can we harness the private sector's investment prowess and innovation capabilities to mobilise $140-300 billion (USD) in combined public and private finance for adaptation and resilience, and what are the essential actions required to ensure that 2,000 of the world's largest companies formulate and execute actionable resilience-building strategies by 2030. Through this discussion, participants will have the opportunity to gain insights into the real-world resilience strategies and actions being championed by leading global companies. We will explore the critical role of private finance in achieving the Sharm El-Sheikh Adaptation Agenda's outcomes, and the importance of innovative financing mechanisms, whole system approaches, and catalytic partnerships in driving climate resilience action.
- 5 Dec, 15:00-16:30 GST, Blue Zone, COP28, Expo City Dubai:
Systems Thinking for Holistic Climate Action, a roundtable discussion, in collaboration with World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO), Conservation International (CI) and Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC), featuring nature-driven engineering, policy, and finance solutions. This is an official side event of the COP28 programme, and will also be livestreamed here.
We will explore the potential of nature-based and hybrid approaches to developing inclusive, effective, nature-positive infrastructure and climate solutions. Fostering transdisciplinary and systems thinking is key to achieving these goals. We have a dynamic lineup of speakers and panellists, who will discuss different approaches to accelerating the energy transition. The session is split in half, with 45 minutes of presentations, and then a 45-minute panel session.
- 5 Dec, 16:00-17:30 GST, Blue Zone, COP28, Expo City Dubai:
