The necessary systemic and systematic transformations needed to build inclusive and transformative resilience will require an integrated and cross-sectoral approach that acknowledges the role of stakeholders and actions at multiple levels of decision-making, governance and finance. GRP works with partners and stakeholders across sectors to understand the action that is required, raise ambition and commitments, and build the bridge that is required to realise inclusive and transformative resilience.

GRP aims to bridge the gap between action taken on the ground by local communities and the ambition expressed in regional and international spaces, ensuring that international resilience action is not only inclusive, but that it speaks to the reality, knowledge and expertise of those on the frontlines. Whether it is raising global ambition through engagement on campaigns such as the Race to Resilience under the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action, or advancing global climate finance architecture to ensure resources are channeled to on-the-ground action through the Frontline Funds Accelerator, GRP is committed to radical collaboration for resilience action.

GRP is involved in several partnerships and initiatives that aim to accelerate global ambition and action on inclusive and transformative resilience:

  1. Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action
  2. High-Level Champions and the Race to Resilience
  3. Frontline Funds Accelerator
  4. Ocean Risk and Resilience Action Alliance
  5. Risk-informed Early Action Partnership
