Stimson – COP27: Closing the Climate Adaptation Investment Gap in Small Island States and Coastal Communities
Join us for a discussion with US leadership, the World Bank, and the Egyptian government on the pathways forward and the solutions to build climate resilience in island states and coastal communities in the lead up to COP27.
Next month, Egypt will host COP27 whose major goal is to turn past climate pledges into action. Yet during COP26, island states and least developed countries across the Global South called for greater focus and more resources devoted to climate adaptation and resilience. Recent extreme weather events in places like Pakistan and the Philippines underscore this urgency. With the UN estimating that $300 billion is needed annually to fill the adaptation gap in developing countries, tensions run high as world leaders grapple with ways to reduce carbon while also building resilience where it is needed most. Please join us for a robust discussion with US leadership, the World Bank, and the COP 27 Presidency’s Egyptian government on the pathway forward and the tools such as CORVI needed to achieve success.
