About the event

Hosted by the Ministry of the Environment of Japan (MoEJ), Government of Japan, together with the APAN Secretariat at UNEP, the 7th Asia-Pacific Climate Change Adaptation Forum will be held virtually on 8-12 March 2021 under the theme: Enabling Resilience for All: The Critical Decade to Scale-up Action, sharing learnings from actions towards climate-resilient development. Resilience is the unifying theme of the Forum, which is structured around four thematic “streams” focusing on (i) inclusive resilience; (ii) nature-based resilience (iii) economic sector resilience; and (iv) communities and local resilience.

Resilience embodies the desired end-point of adaptation, applicable to natural, human, economic, and engineered systems. Adequate enabling conditions through which resilience may be built on, maintained, and strengthened are identified as a) climate governance; b) planning and processes; c) science and assessment; d) technologies and practices; e) finance and investments.
