Regional dialogue series: scaling up locally-led adaptation

September 7, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am UTC+6

At the COP26 Presidency’s Climate and Development Ministerial, the world’s most vulnerable countries stated loud and clear the need for radical improvements in their access to climate finance, and the need to increase support for locally led adaptation. Similar calls have also come through the Climate Vulnerable Forum and G7 meetings.

In partnership with the UN COP26 Presidency, Race to Resilience and the Adaptation Action Coalition, eight partners are collaborating to build on this momentum to support the scale-up in locally-led adaptation globally.

Six peer-to-peer regional dialogues will be held across Asia-Pacific, Africa, and the Caribbean and Latin America.

The COP26 Presidency is pressing donors to improve and scale up their adaptation commitments, including support to locally-led adaptation and access to finance. Locally-led adaptation is a central focus for the incoming Presidency, and in the lead up to COP, donors will convene to discuss how to improve adaptation financing at the local level.

The dialogues will offer a chance for countries and non-state actors to learn from each other and showcase the real potential for locally-led adaptation via direct and enhanced direct access models.
