A day before Climate Week NYC 2019 officially kicks off, the Global Resilience Partnership, alongside other partners, is convening an event called Building a Resilient Future.

Dedicated to reinforcing the focus on resilience and the commitments expected to be made at the UN Climate Action Summit, this event will feature innovative, interactive and participatory sessions for participants to share their actions and commitments for a transformative and resilient future. Participants will learn from each others experiences and discover how to embed resilience into actions and achieve the SDGs.

Anne Hammill, Director of the IISD's Resilience program, will be on the panel “Parallel Session 3. Empowering Resilience Programming in Action: Leveraging Capacities, Knowledge and Tools” from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm at the Starr Hall.
