Join leading resilience experts to brainstorm about the drivers of success, key enabling conditions, and solutions to these challenges, which include longer time horizons, greater uncertainly, and reluctance to acknowledge the implications of the looming severity of climate impacts in some regions. We will dive into strategies and pathways, as well as concrete stories of building long-term, sustainable climate resilience through systemic and inclusive change.
Climate change is happening now, and we are all united by the vital need to adapt to its impacts. It forces us to rethink our concepts and models of cooperation, to ensure global food security and good nutrition, avoid maladaptation and reduce escalating risks of conflict and crisis.
In many parts of the world, transformative approaches are necessary where climate impacts are currently happening or are projected to be so severe that they may undermine the viability of current agricultural and food systems. We must build a dialogue around what transformative adaptation means, and the implications and importance of including multiple stakeholder perspectives in planning for such significant social and economic changes.
