Race to Resilience Action Dialogues: Meet the initiatives mobilizing action

By Climate Champions | March 26, 2021

After launching in January 2021 at the Climate Adaptation Summit, the Race to Resilience is excited to invite you to meet the first round of initiatives who have officially joined the race!

Click here to register your place for the first Race to Resilience Action Dialogues taking place March 30, 10.30-12.00 (BST) and hear directly from the resilience initiatives and civil society representatives from around the world who are taking part.

Hosted by the High-Level Champions, speakers at the Action Dialogues will be laying out how they are raising their ambitions as part of the Race to Resilience and placing climate resilience at the centre of the COP 26 agenda. The Dialogues will identify how non-state action is putting people and nature first and empowering local action on resilience and adaptation, creating an ambition loop to raise the level of ambition of state actors too.

The event serves as a bridge into the Climate and Development Ministerial taking place on March 31, with the messages from the Action Dialogues being taken directly into the CDM by Sheela Patel, Founder of Slum Dwellers International who will deliver the closing remarks at the Ministerial.

Participants at the Action Dialogues include:

About the Race to Resilience 

The Race to Resilience is a global campaign – the sibling to Race to Zero – catalysing a step-change in global ambition and action for climate resilience, putting people and nature first in pursuit of a resilient world where we don’t just survive climate shocks and stresses but thrive in spite of them.
