COP27 Asia Pacific Resilience Hub

The Asia Pacific Resilience Hub was led by the Global EverGreening Alliance, delivering a series of closed-door round table talks to foster open and honest dialogue within the region.

The Regional Resilience Hubs played a crucial role of ensuring the voices and perspectives of traditionally under-represented communities are amplified and heard. They played a central role in illuminating and communicating regional priorities, actions, solutions and challenges on the global stage at COP27.

Key Messages

Key Messages that have come out of this year’s Asia Pacific highlight the strong need to go beyond talk and create action. Key messaging focused on Water Rights, Land Tenure and Climate Finance and Investment. Key messages shared by all roundtables addressed scalability, financial and investment requirements, adaptation action gaps, the need and acknowledgement for local and indigenous knowledge, and the provision of resources to small-holder farmers. Bringing actions to the region’s development agenda, all participants unanimously agreed that now is the moment to act if we are to strengthen our ability to bounce forward in creating climate resilience in the region.

The Aim

Asia Pacific Regional Resilience Hub supported the main Resilience Hub in the run-up to COP27, to ensure that the programming reflected perspectives and priorities from the region, including actions, solutions, and challenges. The Global EverGreening Alliance was in charge of the COP27 Asia Pacific Regional Resilience Hub. The hub gathered knowledge and evidence from government, academia, the private sector, and civil society in order to scale up action toward the common objective of making communities and ecosystems safer, healthier, and more just. The regional hub provided key messages, trends, and inventive solutions to enhance resilience, particularly from the frontline climate warriors, by elevating local voices to the global stage during COP27 in November 2022.

Order of Events

In October, the virtual programme featured four focused roundtable discussions. The targeted dialogues at the virtual roundtables with the key regional organisations centred on three significant thematic areas to understand the primary problems, priority areas, and local initiatives. Priority main themes included climate finance and investment, water rights, and land tenure, intending to capture additional cross-cutting themes such as gender inclusion, promoting local and indigenous knowledge, and amplifying on-the-ground efforts.

The in-person reflective session was held in Resilience Hub at Bluezone in Sharm el-Sheikh on November 12. The Asia Pacific Regional Resilience Hub brought many organisations to openly discuss the challenges confronted and the needed solutions for the region.
