12/09/2019 - New publication. Adapt now: a global call for leadership on climate resilience

A new flagship report, published by the Global Commission on Adaptation, includes recommendations for urgent action to the country and business to accelerate adaptation by focusing on concrete solutions.

The report focuses on making the case for climate adaptation, providing specific insights and recommendations in key sectors: food security, the natural environment, water, cities and urban areas, infrastructure, disaster risk management, and finance. It is designed to inspire action among decision-makers, including heads of state and government officials, mayors, business executives, investors, and community leaders.

The full report can be downloaded here.

PfR’s alliance member Wetlands International actively contributed to the report: the report highlights the Building with Nature initiative in Indonesia (Case study 4: Participatory Planning in Indonesia, page 33) as an example of participatory planning to reduce coastal erosion along its degraded mangrove coasts.
