Developing countries are suffering from the intersecting crises of debt, climate change and biodiversity loss. Debt for climate and nature swaps can under the right circumstances provide fiscal space and address climate financing gaps across developing countries (IMF, 2022).

Through diminished debt service obligations, swaps will finance nature and climate Key Performance Indicators including policy commitments from Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plans (NBSAPs). This would expand investment in renewable energy, marine and terrestrial conservation and land restoration.

These swaps must be large scale and programmatic, more than piecemeal projects of the past, with swap funds managed through debtor government budgets as with IMF macro programmes or World Bank Development Policy loans (Steele and Patel, 2020).

Comprehensive risk management (CRM) has emerged as a practical approach and practice that offers a shared understanding of risk as the common denominator for climate change adaptation and disaster risk management planning across all timescales, in order to help avert, minimize and address losses and damages associated with the effects of climate change. This approach paves the way for coherent sectoral implementation, alongside public financing and international development assistance.

Deliberations under the CRM topic will share replicable, scalable ,collaborative and integrated actions that contribute to long-term climate resilience. This will build on existing best practices from countries and communities on CRM, in line with the Sendai Framework, Bali Agenda for Resilience, and Target 1 from the Risk-informed Early Action Partnership (REAP).

Over the past several years it has become even clearer that loss and damage work is not the same as adaptation and requires its own funding stream. Communities will need access to reliable streams of finance to not only make up for the increasing losses and damages they face, but to also build resilience to the most dire effects of climate change, and – if necessary – relocate. As climate impacts get more severe, the issue of loss and damage financing has an increasingly raised profile. The need for a loss and damage finance facility is becoming ever more apparent. This session aims to complement discussions in this year’s negotiations and will consider a set of issues around meeting L&D needs through effective investments and financial instruments.

Declining public health and climate change are interrelated global threats. There are powerful solutions that sit at the nexus between the two, and a healthier society will by nature be more resilient to adverse changes to our climate.

Led by the champion of trail-blazing policy (The Wellbeing of Future Generations [Wales] Act) that has brought nature-based, place-based and social outcomes-based solutions to the fore, this fireside chat will explore with leaders from other nations how to introduce policy that encourages societal health and wellbeing outcomes while also contributing to climate resilience.

The private sector in rich nations has benefitted from the resilience-building benefits of insurance and risk management for centuries while those who need it most – vulnerable communities hardest hit by climate change – have little or no access to insurance and risk expertise.

In this session, we will explore how risk management capability and financial solutions used by the private sector can further humanitarian, development and climate finance goals. The panellists will explore ways of scaling and improving existing models and launching new ones.

Business Agenda for Climate Change Adaptation4:15 PM4:45 PMWhile the global community must continue making progress on reducing emissions, the world has now warmed 1.1 degree above pre-industrial levels and the impacts of climate change are being felt acutely. Climate adaptation is now a necessity, yet it remains largely a governmental domain and the delivery of financing lags commitments. Business action on adaptation could help unlock progress, but what actions should businesses take? The session will launch a new World Economic Forum briefing paper.

Carbon markets are increasing in size and scope, with billions pouring into the voluntary carbon market, and carbon projects expanding to new geographies. This new market creates both challenges and opportunities. This panel will discuss models from Colombia and Kenya focused on USAID’s contributions to the implementation of carbon and other payment for environmental services projects to bring AD/Resilience benefits to local communities. Northern Rangelands Trust (NRT) will speak on carbon, grasslands, climate justice, localization, benefit sharing and ecosystems-based adaptation. From Colombia, Afro-descendant communities will highlight strategies to achieve forest protection, ethnic and local communities’ empowerment and climate resilience enabled by REDD+ projects. Complex problems like climate change are rooted in a web of underlying conditions that are often intertwined with many other challenges. Addressing them requires teams, organizations, networks, and partnerships to act and learn together, and work collaboratively across sectors, to achieve systemic transformation of global systems—like agriculture, sustainable landscapes, governance, infrastructure and health.

As adaptation goals and implementation are considered more and more important by globally by state and non-state actors, resilience measurement is gaining ground as a cross-cutting issue. This session will unpack some of the issues that brought to the fore in a consultation report and aims to shift the needle on how we articulate the need for measurement (and who has this need).

The session asks:
• What are the entry points to resilience measurement in complex systems?
• What is the role of resilience measurement when tracking progress? Can it be a marker of future trajectories?
• Who is measurement meant for? How do the key audiences approach measurement in case of conflicting priorities?

In 2015, IOM estimated that around 3 million people move to cities every week. As our cities continue to grow, there is an opportunity to co-design better response measures to enhance their ability to serve as a place of refuge for many, not only during climate disasters but also during climate-induced conflicts.

Conflict is an inevitable aspect of development and change in urban settings. Coupled with climate impacts, the future extent of crisis and conflict in cities is uncertain. Hence, there is a need to develop more constructive and equitable ways to design our cities.

To make our cities more resilient, it has become apparent that our discourse must look at the broader lens of urban governance, technologies to protect critical infrastructure, research to fill knowledge gaps and other viable solutions.

The objective of the session is to discuss integrated actions that can effectively contribute to full-case resilience.

Managing and reducing disaster and climate risk is essential to the resilience of infrastructure systems and the essential services they provide. Accessible and comparable probabilistic multi-hazard, climate conditioned financial risk metrics are fundamental to closing the resilience gap. These metrics can be used to make the case for the integration of disaster and climate risk management into national infrastructure policies and plans, and to inform the development of design standards and norms. They are necessary to make the economic case for resilience and to enable the economic valuation of approaches such as Nature-based Solutions. Financial risk metrics are also critical to calculate the contingent liabilities and the risk adjusted returns on investments in infrastructure projects and to calibrate risk financing schemes and mechanisms. This session will present the preliminary results of a pioneering Global Infrastructure Risk Model and Resilience Index (GIRI) – the first ever probabilistic risk and resilience assessment covering global infrastructure sectors.

Scaling up adaptation finance at the local level will require transformational shifts in terms of the platforms used, reforms to finance architecture and sources of finance. Enhancing feedback on what is working and what is not will ensure these transformations can happen faster and more effectively. This will support finance recipients and the people impacted by projects to shape developmental outcomes. This session brings together a range of stakeholders involved in climate finance to explore novel approaches to accountability. It will provide an opportunity for finance providers and intermediaries to work towards more inclusive and transparent finance provision and promote locally led adaptation.

How does building resilience for 4 billion people by 2030 look like? This is the goal and the question the Race to
Resilience (R2R) campaign is trying to achieve and answer. We believe there is a reason why people use storytelling
as a resource to talk about climate change and climate resilience, not only to share real work but also to increase
conscience, and that’s what we will try to explore in this event. In this session three RTR partners will showcase
solution stories they are leading to build and scale resilience on the ground, aiming not only to inspire others into
action but to dive into the how. Telling the stories behind their work. This will be an interactive session where the
public will have the opportunity to engage with our partners and gain insights into how they are delivering concrete
actions, creating real positive impacts on communities’ lives and livelihoods built upon measurable resilience
outcomes.

Digital tools and data insights have great potential to transform agricultural productive realities. Nevertheless, there are many challenges to creating inclusive solutions that increase resilience for food systems. Solutions that may work for commercial contexts won’t for smallholder farmers. Furthermore, how can scalable solutions be transferred to diverse cultural contexts and take traditional agricultural production into account? While mobile coverage is expanding in most parts of the Global South, knowledge is oftentimes transferred via traditional communication channels. This session will take a comprehensive look at the many aspects of scaling digital solutions and how they can improve resilience for food systems.

Climate change, the Covid-19 pandemic and rising conflict are among the main drivers of the sharp increase in global food insecurity seen in the past five years, fuelling what threatens to become one of the largest food crises in the world’s recent history. Although increasing evidence acknowledges the links between climate, conflict and food insecurity, current actions are still too siloed. The siloed nature of institutions, limited understanding of systemic risks and their implications, and the existence of inherent tensions and trade-offs between different perspectives and solutions all contribute to the lack of sufficient action. This session provides a safe space to explore a diversity of perspectives on the types of action needed to avoid the most dire scenarios of the current food crisis and the food-climate-conflict nexus. The panel will convene a discussion among five panelists representing key actors and sectors in this space, including representatives from both formal institutions and informal change makers.

On current estimates, reaching economic gender parity will take 135 years, meaning yet another generation of women will not experience equality in their lifetime. In addition, women suffer disproportionate impacts of climate change – women, for example, are fourteen times more likely to die during environmental disasters than men. Women also play a central (but often invisible) role in global supply chains as producers, distributors and entrepreneurs, making up 43% of the world’s agricultural labour force.

So, how can we transition to a net zero economy at the same time as economically empowering more women? Join us for this session to find out what donors, investors and institutions can do to ensure a just transition that takes gender equity into account.

For example, by shifting to non-motorized modes of personal and public transport, we can improve efficiency and deliver more resilient mobility services. This session asks: How can entrepreneurship be supported and encouraged in these spaces? Which entrepreneurial initiatives are leading the way?

This session will consider opportunities and barriers in business models, financing, technology, policy, and engaging legacy institutions such as public utilities which will play an important part in the future of net zero transportation. It will consider similarities and differences across markets, facilitating knowledge-sharing as one way to generate new ideas.

In March 2022, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres made a call to ensure that every person on Earth is protected by early warning systems within five years. The response to the call should consider the end-to-end, people-centered early warning value chain. Early warning systems must also consider community participation in the planning and design of EWEA, building on shock-responsive social protection mechanisms and innovative insurance solutions. This session will discuss what success should look like for this ambitious new initiative.

In the lead up to COP27, Indigenous peoples and local communities demanded that governments and financial institutions take urgent climate action, collectively upholding and working to advance just and resilient community-led solutions.

Past and ongoing injustices experienced by Indigenous peoples and local communities continue to accumulate globally due to the fact that they have not been afforded their rights, roles, responsibilities and expectations in the pursuit of conservation goals. Women in particular are the most adversely impacted by climate change and socio-ecological degradation, and yet continue to be indispensable actors and leaders with traditional knowledge and effective solutions. Within this struggle, Indigenous peoples and local communities must stand at the forefront of policy-making and action to create long-term systemic change. This session will focus on culture and showcase resilience efforts led by Indigenous peoples in ecosystem restoration.

Blue, aquatic foods and the benefits they provide to billions of people around the world are threatened by climate change, especially in countries where significant sustainable development challenges persist. Current efforts to adapt to climate change often focus on preserving the status quo, but for vulnerable aquatic food communities such an approach is not only insufficient but also decouples responses to climate change from sustainable development aspirations. In this session, experts will discuss the need to raise ambition from adaptation to a “shared blue prosperity” and call on leaders to effect justice-informed financing, innovation, and collaboration to enact this vision.

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), agrobiodiversity includes the variability of animals, plants and microorganisms, at the genetic, species and ecosystem levels, which together play a fundamental role in food security and nutrition. Likewise, it is essential because it regulates ecological functions, allowing species to continue evolving and adapting; in addition to providing the population and livelihoods, social, cultural and recreational values.

This session creates a space for exchange for national and subnational actors on experiences in the conservation of agrobiodiversity as a measure for the resilience of native communities to climate change and for strengthening food security.

This session will showcase real world examples of planning, delivery and management of NbS, with a focus on building the business case, implementing hybrid solutions and their long-term operation and maintenance. The session addresses the integration of infrastructure and nature, exploring how to work with nature to build systemic resilience and identify nature-positive solutions for mitigation and adaptation.

In this session, colleagues will share their loss and damage cultural journeys towards more holistic, culture rich, and community activated solutions. The connections between loss and damage, and culture and heritage, are transversal, complex – and too often missing for the loss and damage conversation. Culture and heritage along with Indigenous and local knowledge systems are increasingly vulnerable to loss from both slow and rapid onset hazards (and also sometimes maladaptation and mal-mitigation). This session asks: How does one grieve from the loss of the irreplaceable? What is the price of cultural extinction? Does loss mean the same thing in every culture?

This session will take a deep dive into the tools that governments, cities, development partners and agencies use to plan, measure and finance adaptation and resilience interventions, with a focus on city-scale interventions that can act as trailblazers for resilience and climate adaptation building measures on other scales.

This technical and reflective discussion will aim to capture the importance of such efforts to the unlocking of climate finance on the city scale but also to understand the ways in which local voices can be integrated into, or lead such processes. The session will include perspectives from organizations that design and implement these tools on behalf of cities and governments as well as perspectives from government and community level partners.

To realize a resilient, just future, effective climate interventions must include organized urban poor communities – particularly women and youth – as lead designers, planners, and implementers of climate solutions. Evidence shows that these communities have the skills, capacities and systems to drive and deliver locally-led adaptation and channel climate finance directly to communities who need it most. This session will illustrate the power of urban poor communities to produce governance and finance models that advance climate justice from the ground up, highlighting the transformative power of these strategies.

Communities in fragile and conflict-affected situations (FCS) receive less climate finance than their more stable counterparts, limiting their ability to build resilience against overlapping crises. There is an urgent need to ensure finance reaches FCS communities and coordinate approaches to managing climate and conflict risks.

This session will explore:
• What the conflict blind spot looks like “on the ground” – including how shortfalls in finance undermine local adaptive capacities; and
• Donor and investor perspectives on the key challenges to investing in climate resilience in crisis contexts, how they are overcoming these barriers, and the opportunities to catalyze further investments.

This session will begin with an introduction from Tasneem Essop and will be followed by a screening of BBC Arabic’s incendiary on-the-ground investigation into modern sacrifice zones in southern Iraq. After the screening there will be a panel discussion featuring Ali, a 19-year-old leukaemia survivor who helped reveal the truth about the poisonous air his community has to breathe in Rumaila oil field, where BP is the lead contractor. The film’s director, Jess Kelly will talk about the risks and difficulties of making the film in Iraq and how the world’s biggest oil companies – BP, Shell and Exxon Mobil have responded to the allegations. We discuss the concept of ‘sacrifice zones’ where company profits are prioritised over human health, human rights and the environment and talk about solutions. How can we ensure that the next generation of Iraqis do not suffer the way Ali did?
