Presentation and Videos for the Source to Sea Event can be found here (Google Drive) OR here (MS Teams).
The event showcases resilience interventions being delivered from ‘Source to Sea’ in South Asia with an emphasis on scaling up practical solutions and bringing in civil society and community voices to show that local adaptation works and can be scaled. It will be anchored in the Resilience Hub at COP26 and will be a virtual event ‘stopping in’ at various points from the high mountains to the plains and sea – and highlighting how climate finance is being used to build resilience and support community adaptation.
The event aims to call for COP26 to agree to increased investment in local level solutions and ensure support reaches the most vulnerable.
