COP26 Resilience Hub Synthesis Report published

Following from the first ever COP Resilience Hub at COP26 in Glasgow, this report synthesises the key overarching messages from the activities at the Hub and aims to help set the direction for future actions towards COP27. The report also includes findings and insights from the ten themes explored during the Hub.

The main findings from the sessions centred around local action, climate finance, knowledge exchange, nature-based solution and inclusivity. Specifically:

  1. Locally Led Adaptation is essential for transformative and equitable adaptation and is ripe for scaling, subject to finance access.
  2. There is an urgent need to increase the overall availability of quality finance for adaptation and resilience, as well as diversify financial instruments through emphasising grant-based rather than loan-based models.
  3. Transformative adaptation and resilience require bridging the gaps between knowledge and implementation through knowledge brokering and advancing measurement and learning.
  4. Nature based Solutions are key to transforming risk into resilience through integrated urban, coastal, and rural climate actions.
  5. Pragmatic and equitable adaptation and resilience action requires women, youth, disabled, displaced, and Indigenous peoples to be at the heart of design, decision-making, and implementation.

Besides summarising the key overarching messages, the synthesis report also presents findings and insights from the three pillars of Race to Resilience: rural, urban, and coastal. The pillars shaped the programming of the Resilience Hub activities.

The COP Resilience Hub was managed by the Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center at the Atlantic Council, the
Global Resilience Partnership and The Resilience Shift.
