The purpose of the Day is to reinforce the focus on resilience and the commitments expected to be made at the Climate Action Summit. It will feature innovative, interactive and participatory sessions for participants to share the actions and commitments they are making to achieve a transformative and resilient future. This will enable participants to learn from each other on what they are doing and how to embed resilience into actions to address climate change and achieve the SDGs. The Day has four objectives:
To provide the opportunity for all stakeholders to commit to actions and initiatives to build a resilient future, and to explore how by breaking out of institutional and sector silos these can be greater than the sum of their parts.
To highlight actions that grassroots organisations are taking, and how these organisations, and in particular women, can be part of decision making to take these actions to scale especially in the Least Developed Countries.
To set out how the latest knowledge and understanding on resilience can be used to build and invest in adaptive, resilient and transformative communities and economies.
To provide a highly interactive space to explore and identify new strategies, collaborations, and partnerships to advance and track the implementation of the actions and initiatives announced on the day.
