The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in September 2021 was a major opportunity to progress adaptation finance issues, particularly ahead of the UN climate summit (COP26).

Also taking place during Climate Week NYC, this UNGA high-level side event was an opportunity for progressive providers of climate finance to stand with climate-vulnerable countries and respond to their priorities.

Countries signalled strong political commitment on adaptation finance to spark momentum. Participants heard from ministers and senior officials on their ambitious adaptation finance plans, and how they seek to improve the quantity, quality and access to adaptation finance.

These issues had already featured across many major meetings this year, including at the Climate Adaptation Summit, the Climate and Development Ministerial, and the G7 Summit.

This event was the next in the milestone moments for accelerating adaptation finance on the road to COP26.
