COP26 Charter of Actions: Virtual Stakeholder Roundtable on Adaptation and Resilience
Accelerating economic growth along with equitable recovery is fundamental to sustainable development and climate action. Under the presidency of United Kingdom in partnership with Italy, the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), to be held from 1–12 November 2021 in Glasgow will aim at mobilising action on climate change mitigation, adaptation, and resilience, and aligning them with sustainable development goals.
On 25 August 2021 | 15.00 hrs - 16.30 hrs
Keeping in view the importance of COP 26, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) is preparing the COP26 Charter of Actions that will be a document presenting the questions and solutions in respect of key sectors in India. This roundtable is being organized under the banner of TERI's flagship Track II initiative the ‘World Sustainable Development Summit'. The Charter will recommend action in areas where there is a scope for raising ambition and offer sector specific solutions. It will also propose a framework for a global agenda on climate ambition and action. Five themes have been identified as key areas for raising ambition. These include energy, clean transport, nature-based solutions, adaptation & resilience, and green finance. The Charter activities are supported by the British High Commission, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation and TATA Cleantech Capital.
We invite you to attend the virtual stakeholder roundtable event ‘Adaptation and Resilience in India’ on August 25th (Wednesday) from 15.00 to 16.30 IST.
In the evolving climate policy narrative of the Global South, there is a pressing requirement for embracing climate resilient development pathways that are adept at decision making under increasingly uncertain and interrelated climate and social challenges arising across scales. Much of the world’s vulnerable population reside in the country with limited access to resources that can enable resilience to climate risks and its impacts. It is imperative that policies, plans and vision at the all levels in India should recognise the economic, social, environmental risks arising from climatic events.
With the above background, a stakeholder roundtable will be organized with the following objectives.
(1) Engage with stakeholders and experts on adaptation and resilience e to solicit feedback for the COP26 Charter of Actions.
(2) Solicit inputs from stakeholders and experts on aspects related to implications for the international community, equity, actions by 2030, and actions by 2050.
