Extreme weather events such as heat waves, floods, and wildfires have become a daily reality of our lives

World leaders, governments and state parties to the convention reiterated their commitment at COP26 for enhanced global action on adaptation at COP26.

The global goal on adaptation was one of the important outcomes of COP26. We must ensure that COP27 makes the necessary progress and urge all parties to demonstrate the necessary political will if we are to capture and assess our progress towards building resilience and assisting the most vulnerable communities.

Beyond the global goal on adaptation, COP27 should witness a strengthened global action agenda for adaptation, confirming what we agreed to in Paris and deepened in the Glasgow Compact with regard to placing adaptation at the forefront of global action.
