The Resilience Hub will connect action and discourse on adaptation and resilience, led by non-state actors from businesses, investors, civil society, academia and cities. The Resilience Hub serves as a dynamic space to bring together a diverse range of voices and stakeholders, and is the home to the Race to Resilience campaign. The Regional Hubs (RegHubs) play a crucial role in ensuring that regional priorities, solutions and actions on the ground, are amplified to a global audience. In particular, the RegHubs aim to engage lesser heard and underrepresented constituencies with a focus on grassroots- and community-level voices.
The South Asia Resilience Hub will be hosted by the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) Bangladesh. The Regional Resilience Hub will continue to build a regional momentum that stays committed to the agenda of frontline communities and their networks.
The Regional Hub will organize a series of virtual events in the month of September leading up to COP27 in Nov2022 to bring local experiences and knowledge of building resilience to the impacts of climate change.
- To identify local groups and organizations to share best practices and build collaboration, momentum and new opportunities on adaptation and resilience.
- To amplify messages on resilience and adaptation at COP27 and beyond.
- To help set the direction for future action on adaptation and resilience.
The Regional Hub will focus on identifying and engaging local champions and constituencies working to build the resilience of climate vulnerable communities across 10 themes:
- Food and agriculture
- Cities, Regions & Built Environment
- Water resilience
- Energy access and resilience
- Finance and Investment
- Resilient Infrastructure
- Locally led adaptation
- Health & Well-Being (including heat stress)
- Early action and disaster risk reduction
- Arts, Culture, and Heritage
Next Steps for Contributing:
- Organisations and Networks of frontline communities in the South Asia Region are invited to submit brief applications to host and run a virtual online session in September.
- The session duration can be 60 minutes, 90 minutes and 120 Minutes (maximum).
- The session should relate to one of the 10 themes that have been identified for the COP27 Resilience Hub.
- A short output with three main messages from the session discussion will be taken to COP27 and will be sent to the ‘Blue Zone’ which will be the window and connector for the Resileince Hub into COP27 for two weeks in November at Egypt.
