The Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS) 2021, 25-26 January, is an online global conference to accelerate, innovate and scale up the world’s efforts in adapting to the inevitable effects of climate change.
Bringing together a range of key actors from institutions, governments, cities and communities, the private sector, and civil society, including youth movements, from all over the world, CAS 2021 responds to United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres’s call for “more concrete plans, more ambition from more countries and more businesses” to make the world more climate-resilient.
CAS 2021 will build on the advances of the United Nations Climate Action Summit 2019 and sustain momentum till COP26 in Glasgow in 2021. The conference culminates a Year of Action, launched by Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in 2019.
CAS 2021 represents a unique moment in time to connect initiatives, solutions and challenges to build back better and accelerate adaptation action. Building on the work of the Global Commission on Adaptation, led by Ban Ki‑moon, Bill Gates, and Kristalina Georgieva, the Netherlands Government aims to use this moment to deliver an Adaptation Action Agenda for a transformational decade towards 2030.
The World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO), as leader of the Farmers’ Constituency, has been invited to give voice and visibility to the farmers. More information will follow soon.
The closing session will be held in conjunction with the Davos World Economic Forum.
