The virtual Adaptation Forum serves as the entrance to the Africa Adaptation Forum. You may promote your project/approach by showcasing your own efforts, accomplishments, and activities in the forum. We welcome reports, essays, short films, posters, PowerPoint presentations, photographic exhibitions, and other formats.
Loss of biodiversity, changing climate, and an increase in severe events all threaten to harm human health, economy, and communities — it is past time to get on track to realize the Adaptation & Resilience goals of developing countries. Setting the stage for the activities that will follow, the forum will bring together Adaptation leaders to debate the issues at hand. Why do we need to act, and what do we hope to accomplish? The forum seeks to build narratives and emphasize practical results by focusing on transition points and the transformation required to accomplish this goal.
Discuss how synergies may be developed at different levels of (sub)national and local government to identify, implement and scale Adaptation Mechanisms.
Discuss what coordinated efforts are required to stop battle climate change, biodiversity loss, reverse ecological degradation, and ensure human well-being. This space also provides a chance to expand on nature-based solutions that might play an important part in Adaptation.
Discuss alternative approaches to rethinking the economic paradigm that acknowledges Adaptation as the cornerstone of (economic) sustainability, human well-being, and prosperity. Explain in further detail how the economic worth of Adaptation may be expressed and what new financial mechanisms are available to conserve biodiversity while maintaining human well-being.
Discuss how we might shift the narrative and envisage a world where Adaptation Benefits Mechanisms are prioritized, and the well-being of future generations is assured.
