REGISTRATION OPEN! COP27 Africa Regional Resilience Hub Virtual Events
Registration for the Africa Regional Resilience Hub is now opened. The virtual event from 19-22 September aims to illuminate African priorities and solutions to be shared at COP27. CDKN and SSN will be delivering the virtual hub and you can register here.
The agenda is packed with a diverse range of regional priority topics, including private sector solutions and community-led and bottom-up adaptation financing, climate-resilient farming and food systems, locally-led adaptation and extreme heat in African cities, cultural and heritage as a driver of climate resilience, the role of tech start-ups in building resilience amongst vulnerable households and businesses.
The Africa LEDS Partnership’s Soil Organic Carbon Community of Practice is pleased to be hosting a panel discussion on Achieving Food Security through Healthy and Productive Soils during the event. The session will explore practices on the ground which can support improvements in soil health and carbon content (and subsequently food production) as well as policies, plans and strategies needed to support action on the ground. This will lead into a discussion regarding the tools and mechanisms which can support a collaboration which can share lessons on best practice from the ground to inform policy and planning at the government level.
This session is scheduled to take place on 21 September 2022 at 11:30 SAST/CET. We invite all interested parties to join us for this event.
The Africa Regional Resilience Hub is one of four regional hubs of the COP27 Resilience Hub, which intends to provide a dynamic and diverse space both at and between UNFCCC COPs to advance inclusive and ambitious action on adaptation and resilience. It serves as the home to the Race to Resilience campaign at COP, representing over 1,500 non-state actors taking action on resilience around the world.
The Regional Resilience Hubs aim to ensure the voices and perspectives of traditionally under-represented communities are heard and amplified to a global audience. They illuminate and communicate regional priorities, actions, solutions and challenges.
