Partnerships - Resilience Frontiers

Resilience Frontiers


Resilience Frontiers originates as an action pledge under the Nairobi Work Programme (NWP) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The pledge itself is also responsive to the “foresight focus” launched by the United Nations Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB) under the Secretary General of the United Nations.

Partners of the Resilience Frontiers action pledge also include the Bangladesh Centre for Advanced Studies; Climate-KIC; Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO); Global Water Partnership (GWP); Green Climate Fund (GCF); International Centre for Climate Change and Development; International Development Research Centre; International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies; Ramsar Convention Secretariat; Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD; Sri Lankan Youth Climate Action Network Trust (SLYCAN); United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD); United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA).

In addition to these partnerships, Resilience Frontiers has benefited significantly from expert insight and input at events and labs from a multifaceted range of thought leaders and organizations, ranging from the late Mario Molina, co-recipient of the 1995 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, and Professor Rattan Lal, winner of the World Food Prize, to Olympic medalists José Luis Abajo Gómez and Elizabeth Pinedo Sáenz. These contributors and friends of Resilience Frontiers are also aligned with the vision and approach of the initiative and provide valuable input in this shared journey:
