Climate adaptation

Climate adaptation is essential, doable and plannable

Climate change forces us to adapt our environments, cultures and systems.

The Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS) 2021 will show how to adapt, provide guidance, and scale up solutions.

Building on the Global Commission on Adaptation and the Call for action of the Adaptation and Resilience Coalition pledged at UNCAS 2019, CAS 2021 will further accelerate adaptation action and drive systematic change.

CAS 2021 is set to deliver an Adaptation Action Agenda as a roadmap for a decade of transformation towards a climate-resilient future by 2030.
