As part of our role to promote diversity and build bridges from knowledge to climate action, we are producing a ‘Windows on resilience’ story series, to be published in the lead-up to and during COP26. The stories aim to showcase innovative and local solutions on adaptation and resilience from diverse people, communities, businesses and governments across sectors and countries.
