About this Event

Join us at this event to celebrate the three year anniversary of the Race to Resilience Campaign and its home at UNFCCC COPs – the Resilience Hub – and reflect forward on the critical gaps that we must close on the road to COP29, COP30, and beyond. As part of London Climate Action Week and in line with its ambition, this event will specifically hone in on mobilising whole-of-society climate action to ensure that the solutions we discuss and create today are fit for everyone without creating blind spots and propagating inequities. We will explore the multifaceted challenges of a rapidly changing climate via the lens of infrastructure and community engagement.

In an ever-changing world, resilient infrastructure emerges as the cornerstone of sustainable development, responding not only to physical needs but also to the evolving demands of communities worldwide. It transcends mere structural integrity to encompass service quality, lifecycle costs, and the mitigation of loss and damage, ushering in a future-ready, just energy transition grounded in resilience, sustainability, and social equity. Collaboration with communities and investment in nature-based solutions (NbS) are pivotal in fortifying infrastructure against the escalating impacts of climate
