What: Launching Stories of Resilience from local adaptation leaders
When: Thursday, 30 November, 14:30-15:00 (GMT +4)
Where: Press Conference Room 2 Zone B6 – Building 77
new report, Stories of Resilience: Lessons from Local Adaptation Practice 2023, released by the Global Center on Adaptation (GCA) and Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) finds that global and national systems are not changing fast enough in response to the needs of local communities racing to adapt to climate change to secure their survival.
GCA and CDKN will host a press briefing to unpack the findings from the report, which are based on over 200 stories submitted by champions of locally led adaptation and tell of progress and gaps in adaptation at the local level.
Local adaptation leaders who have contributed to the report will share first-hand testimonies of how they are struggling to find the necessary support and resources to enable them to scale and extend their work to other communities. The leaders will also share how they are working to transform lives and livelihoods in the face of the changing climate, but find their gains are precarious where they lack the enabling environment (legislative, fiduciary, institutional, technical, and capacity-related) to lock in such transformations.
