COP27 is just around the corner, running from November 6th-18th in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. We are excited for this year’s edition of the most important climate conference and have a few recommendations for you, with a keen eye on the Resilience Hub. In fact, below we highlight two sessions which Scale for Resilience, our Initiative which YAPU Solutions initiated with CIAT/CGIAR and Spanish impact investor GAWA Capital will be facilitating. We will be posting regular updates from COP on LinkedIn, so be sure you are following Scale for Resilience.
Implementation Lab: Radical collaboration to address the urgent need to mobilize private capital for adaptation and resilience’
On November 9th, 14:30-16:00, we together with Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) have organized a session with six 5-minute TED style presentations followed by a roundtable with 30 participants. The guiding question for this roundtable is: How do we scale up local solutions in the south and use these as examples to inform global efforts to integrate physical risks into investment decisions, and innovate instruments that mobilize A+R financing to where it is needed most?.” Christoph Jungfleisch and Luca Torre are among two of the presenters. Join in person at COP27 or find the webcast link here.
The Resilience Hub is a virtual and physical space at COP27 focusing on placing resilience on the global climate agenda. This year, the steering committee selected nine core themes for the Resilience Hub, with ‘Food & Agriculture’ being the theme that we were invited to participate in. Keep reading to see our session descriptions. After registering for the Resilience Hub HERE, you are able to participate in the conference virtually, getting access to all event live-streams, networking opportunities, and exhibits.
How to finance resilience for smallholder farmers at scale? The role of regulation, risk disclosure and locally led adaptation.
On November 10th, 15:00-16:30 pm EET Christoph Jungfleisch will moderate a panel focused on financing resilience for smallholder farmers at scale. As representatives from BNP Paribas, ResponsAbility, GAWA Capital, Climate Policy Initiative, and The GEF, the session will unite the full financial value chain and identify key barriers to finance resilience of smallholder farmers and respective food systems at scale. Beyond just identifying barriers, the session will focus on finding solutions for the near and mid-term.
How to improve productive realities at scale? The need for digital decision support for smallholder farms and beyond.
On November 12th, 11:45-13:00 pm EET Sabrina Nagel will moderate a panel focused on the many aspects of scaling digital solutions and how they can improve resilience for food systems. Digital tools and data insights have proven to have great potential to create more inclusive food systems. However, how can solutions be scaled to diverse cultural contexts and incorporate existing knowledge? Experts from Startups for Sustainable Development (Google), Global Shea Alliance, Mercy Corps, FIRA, YAPU Solutions, and CIAT/CGIAR will share and discuss this landscape of improving resiliency in food systems with digital solutions.
