On October 15th the Risk-informed Early Action Partnership (REAP) participated in a briefing session "Momentum on Climate Adaptation" organized by the Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) for the US Congress in the lead-up to the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
This briefing focused on the initiatives launched or scaled up in recent years that underpin the momentum on adaptation and resilience and that will inform conversations at COP26. Speakers discussed national adaptation plans, country dialogues on adaptation, early-warning systems, and locally-led adaptation. The briefing explored how these efforts advance work towards the global goal on adaptation ‘to enhance adaptive capacity and reduce vulnerability.'
