OECD COP28 Virtual Pavilion

Climate adaptation: Why local governments cannot do it alone

Dec 8, 2023 | 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM


As climate impacts are first and foremost local, many call for climate adaptation to be a locally-led responsibility. However, local climate change adaptation is often lagging behind, suggesting difficulties for subnational governments to handle the necessary adaptation actions. In this session, national as well as subnational government officials will discuss alongside OECD and World Bank adaptation experts how we can effectively foster local adaptation. The OECD will be releasing its new report "Climate adaptation: Why local governments cannot do it alone" and participants will have the opportunity to reflect on some of the key findings.
