An event hosted by the Netherlands.

The Online International Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS) 2021
25 - 26 January 2021

The Climate Adaptaption Summit (CAS), will build on the advances of the UN Climate Action Summit by showcasing pioneering solutions to the climate emergency, and sustaining momentum through to UNFCCC’s COP26 in Glasgow in 2021. As the world recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, the CAS will deliver action and inspire change to help societies build back better. It will aim to help realize the transitions required for a climate-resilient world.

The summit will have a significant focus on securing new investments to ensure that millions of smallholder farmers can adapt to the stresses of climate on food production. The summit organizers have called for major new funding for agricultural research, expanded access to farmer advisory services, as well as expanded access to risk management and financial services.

Following the UN Climate Action Summit on 23 September 2019, convened by UN Secretary-General António Guterres to meet the climate challenge, the GCA will begin its Year of Action. The GCA Year of Action will:

  • advance recommendations from the Commission’s Flagship Report titled, ‘Adapt Now: A Global Call for Leadership on Climate Resilience,’ released in September 2019, and the Climate Action Summit’s action tracks, including food security, infrastructure, finance, urban resilience and nature-based solutions, with tangible and actionable targets;
  • help accelerate adaptation around the world;
  • improve human well-being and result in more sustainable economic development and security; and
  • present its findings at the Climate Adaption Summit.
