SEI’s Deputy Director, Åsa Persson, and Research Fellow Matthew Osborne will present in two of seven interactive sessions to reinforce the focus on resilience and commitments expected to be made at the Climate Action Summit.
Åsa Persson will present the new Adaptation Without Borders initiative in the session ‘Building resilient food and agriculture systems’. This initiative explores global implications of transboundary climate risks and aims to strengthen cooperation among partners to meet the global challenge of adaptation to climate change.
Matthew Osborne will participate in the session ‘Financing a resilient future’ where he will speak about how to effectively meet local community needs for resilience finance, and how to effectively disperse development funding to ensure it reaches the right projects, people and places.
Starting at 14:00 EDT on Sunday 22 September, this event will be available to watch online.
Please see concept note for further details on the interactive parallel sessions.
This event is organized by Global Resilience Partnership and sponsored by UK’s Department for International Development with additional support from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.
