This session will be the first in a series of events exploring and promoting innovative approaches to scale up adaptation technologies to build resilience in ocean and coastal settings.
This virtual event is co-organized by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the Friends of Ecosystem-based Adaptation (FEBA ) network, and UNFCCC Technology Executive Committee (TEC ), in collaboration with the NWP Expert Group on Oceans.
It aims to present and discuss state-of-the-art learning and examples from integrating joint approaches of both technology and ecosystem-based adaptation in various policies and programmes in order to build the resilience of oceans and coastal ecosystems and communities, in particular to:
- Identify emerging technologies and hybrid approaches that have high potential to meaningfully build resilience in the ocean and coastal settings;
- Showcase and discuss various innovative approaches for integrating technological and nature-based solutions, including examples in both policy and practice;
- Explore how indigenous and local knowledge has been integrated into developing or promoting hybrid solutions for adaptation;
- Highlight the importance of safeguards for climate technology, including gender responsiveness and consideration of youth, indigenous, and other historically marginalized perspectives.
