The 2022 UN Climate Change Conference, COP27, was held in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt from 7-18 November. An aim of the conference was to build more support than ever before for climate adaptation, resilience, and loss and damage.

The Resilience Hub returned for a second year, and GRP was one of the managing partners of the Hub. 2022’s hub featured daily events, an interactive programme, art exhibits and much more. The Hub also featured a fully virtual platform for participants to attend and participate remotely. GRP is also participated in sessions in the Climate Action Zone, the Locally-led Adaptation Pavilion, and at the US Center at COP27, including launching the PREPARE Call to Action for the Private Sector with USAID and with input from the Office of the U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate.
