As COP26 brings together national and international negotiators to progress their countries’ commitments on climate action, the non-state-actor community is stepping up to take action on resilience and adaptation. ICSI is proud to be participating in the event programme at the COP26 Resilience Hub which is now open for registration.
The COP Resilience Hub managing partners – the Global Resilience Partnership, the Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center at the Atlantic Council, and The Resilience Shift – have shared that over 100 organisations are involved in supporting the 24/7 virtual programme with significant participation from around the globe.
In a statement of recognition for the importance of resilience and adaptation for their organisations and for our societies, it is sponsored by FCDO, JPMorgan Chase, UNFCCC, Deloitte, Google, IBM, PWC, Arup, AXA-XL, Jupiter Intelligence, Mott MacDonald, SPARC, Willis Towers Watson, WSP, Anglian Water and the Climate Justice Resilience Fund.
