Join us at COP25 to envision a future world in which adaptation to climate change is meeting the challenges of an interconnected world.
The effects of climate change on vulnerable people around the world become clearer every day. As countries continue to accelerate action to respond to the climate crisis, the context of that action is rapidly shifting. Unpredictable political movements, unprecedented globalisation, and technological innovation mean that the global community is transforming as it tries to respond to these challenges.
So let’s take a leap forward: It is 2030 – COP36. The Sustainable Development Goals have been met. The Paris Agreement implemented. The world is successfully adapting to the climate crisis.
But how does the adaptation of tomorrow differ to the adaptation of today? How do countries cooperate in this world? How are the risks of common concern addressed? How are the benefits and opportunities shared? And what needs to happen to deveop this new era of global cooperation?
