UNFCCC COP27 side event: Accelerating Effective Local Climate Adaptation in Energy and Food Systems

  • Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt
  • 11-11-2022
  • 15:00 to 16:30

REEEP and partners will discuss climate adaptation and how to strengthen resilience in energy and food systems in an official UNFCCC COP27 side event, ‘Accelerating Effective Local Climate Adaptation in Energy and Food Systems’.

On 11 November, ”Decarbonisation Day at COP27”, REEEP is hosting an official side event on accelerating climate adaptation in energy and food systems. Join us in person or online for the session on ‘Accelerating effective local climate adaptation in energy and food systems’.

Co-organised with partners SNV and WWF, the side event will bring together policymakers, donors, investors and NGOs to share learnings and best practices from Africa’s cross-sectoral, scalable and localised approaches.


Event schedule:

Date: Friday, 11 November 2022 (COP27 Decarbonisation Day)

Time: 15:00 – 16:30 EET

Location: Thebes Conference Room (Blue Zone)



During the panel discussion, speakers will explore why climate adaptation investment often falls short of need and does not always produce effective adaptation on the ground. The session will examine how localised energy and food nexus approaches can increase the effectiveness of investments and improve food security, closing the gap between NDCs, pledges and impact.
