Unlocking transformative adaptation and long-term resilience through cross-border collaboration
This session builds on discussions around Africa’s vision for transformative adaptation and long-term resilience and what it would take to achieve that vision. It examines the challenges and opportunities for cross-border collaboration in pursuit of transformative adaptation and long-term resilience.
Specifically, discussions in this session will examine lessons and best practices from some of Africa’s flagship mechanisms promoting collaborative management of ecosystems and resources, such as the Great Green Wall and Blue Wall. Further, the session will elaborate on how cross-border partnerships can address the compounding effects of climate change toward fragility, displacement, and conflict.
