Thematic Event: Collaboration models to accelerate climate action in humanitarian settings
2 November @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Climate change affects every aspect of people’s lives, both creating and exacerbating humanitarian crises around the world. Warming of the atmosphere, ocean and land – driven by human activity – is causing climate variations and extremes all over the world, with over three billion people living in places that are highly vulnerable to climate change. Action taken to date by the international community has been insufficient to prevent or reverse these trends.
No one can address these challenges alone. New solutions and inspiring partnerships are needed now to prevent further suffering, the need for new collaboration models to bolster climate action and strengthen the resilience of vulnerable communities has never been more urgent.
We are pleased to partner with the International Committee of the Red Cross and Swiss Re Foundation to showcase the potential impact of philanthropic giving and the power of cross-sectoral partnerships to strengthen climate action.
