The COP27 Resilience Hub report provides a run down of the key resilience and adaptation outcomes from COP27 and the main messages and policy takeaways from the Resilience Hub. It has been developed from inputs from more than 70 Resilience Hub sessions, the four Regional Resilience Hubs that took place in the lead up to COP27, as well as over 15,000 people across the world who participated in-person and online.

Resilience Hub

For the past two years, the Resilience Hub has created a focal point to advance action on adaptation and resilience at COPs and beyond. An inclusively built virtual and physical space, the Resilience Hub mobilises greater levels of ambition and action on building resilience to climate change, helping provide a strong collective voice on resilience for all those globally who are working to build a more resilient world. The Hub serves as the home to the Race to Resilience campaign at COP, representing over 1,500 non-state actors taking action on resilience around the world. As a managing partner and Africa Regional Hub lead, CDKN worked alongside a diverse set of partners to ensure that diverse perspectives and best practices on resilience were amplified, helping drive the agenda at COP. 

Resilience Hub report

The Resilience Hub report provides an overview of the key adaptation and resilience decisions and announcements that took place during COP27. Additionally, the report presents the key messages resulting from the events of the Resilience Hub and offers concluding remarks on next steps towards COP28 and beyond. 

The report highlights five cross-cutting messages that emerged from the activities of the Resilience Hub:

  1. Scaling action on adaptation and resilience is inextricably linked to, and a prerequisite for, containing the magnitude of Loss and Damage.

  2. While significant finance gaps remain, a wider diversity of financial actors are taking action to embed resilience as part of strategies, operations, and reporting.

  3. The spectrum of mitigation, adaptation and resilience, and Loss and Damage requires a concerted approach to the governance of implementation.

  4. Arts, heritage, and culture must be at the heart of adaptation and resilience action – protecting them is key to thriving livelihoods and human development.

  5. Locally-led adaptation (LLA) and resilience implementation requires radical collaboration across actors and scales.

Besides summarising the key overarching messages, the synthesis report presents findings and insights from four Regional Hubs and from the nine themes explored in the Resilience Hub during COP27.

Africa Regional Hub

The Regional Resilience Hubs aim to ensure the voices and perspectives of communities and constituencies most impacted by climate change are amplified to increasingly drive the global resilience agenda. 

As the Africa Regional Hub lead, CDKN delivered a programme of in-person and virtual engagements on regional priority topics in the lead up to COP27. A number of key messages emerged from the Africa Hub’s virtual programme, that reflect the urgent priorities for building resilience across the continent. CDKN commissioned a series of graphic harvests to capture the key findings, discussions and challenge areas that emerged from the virtual programme.

All COP27 Resilience Hub sessions are available to re-watch on the Resilience Hub YouTube channel.
