Building a Resilient Future Outcome Document
The Global Resilience Partnership convened over 50 organisations to come together at the Building a Resilient Future Day. The Day was sponsored by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) and hosted by The New School in New York on 22 September. It was attended by over 500 practitioners from governments, businesses, grassroots groups, civil society
organisations, media outlets and academic institutions with many others joining online and sharing their commitments to building a resilient future.
The purpose of this document is twofold: first to provide a record of the rich discussion that took place during Building a Resilient Future Day; and second, to increase the momentum behind actions that help build resilience to the impacts that climate change is having on people, communities, economies and ecosystems
