Global Adaptation Week Kicks Off In Chile Next Week

Professionals and leaders attending next week’s Global Adaptation Week in Chile will concentrate on speeding up measures to adjust to the progressively extreme impacts of climate change and managing misplacement and destruction.

More than 400 people from around the globe are envisioned to attend the week’s events, which is made up of the NAP Expo (27-30 March), the second UN4NAPs Forum (27-30 March), and the provincial assessment seminar on loss and damage under the Santiago network for the Latin America and Caribbean region (3-4 April).

“With world temperature upsurge already at 1.1°C above pre-factory levels, we are encountering more regular and more harsh weather events around the world,” said Ovais Sarmad, UN Climate Change Deputy Executive Secretary.

“No region is spared. The need to step up funding and capabilities for transformation is clear, as well as to standardize temperature-tough growth. The national transformation projects have a paramount function to play in all of these, at a time when the opportunity costs of impaired action are higher than ever and climbing.”

Concertedly arranged by the Government of Chile and UN Climate Change, the week is one of the main transformation events on the global climate change calendar, putting a limelight on the significance of adaptation at a time when global standard temperatures continue to rise.

“The fact that Chile is hosting NAP Expo this year shows the dedication that our country has to offer in the fight against climate change, fostering transnational association to acquire better and more useful ideas, work timetables, and other instances that allow us to have factual criteria in an unfavourable global system”, said Gloria de la Fuente, Undersecretary of Foreign Affairs of Chile. “Our government has the care of the environment in his primacy and this event is a wonderful chance to examine issues such as food security, sustainable management of natural resources, and stability to natural catastrophes, among other matters that need collaborative steps to foster large-scale answers.”

Chile’s Global Adaptation Week is looking forward to receive professionals and delegates from national and sub-national government, budget agencies, including the Green Climate Fund, the Global Environment Facility, and the Adaptation Fund, United Nations organizations and other international associations, bilateral and multilateral agencies, officials of civil societies, regional headquarters and networks, private sector and educational communities.

The theme for this year’s NAP Expo is ‘Scaling up Adaptation’. Attendees will analyze how to increase the coverage and depth and adaption action through the NAP approach, including how to increase the number of adaptation projects being assisted through the different climate funds.
