Unlocking climate-resilient economic development in drylands: pathways to a resilient world

Alongside the global temperature goals of limiting global average warming to well below 2°C, and to make concerted efforts to limit warming to below 1.5°C, the Paris Agreement aims to collectively enhance adaptation, build resilience to climate change, promote low carbon development and ensure that finance flows are provided to support these efforts. A global goal on adaptation to enhance adaptive capacity, strengthen resilience and reduce vulnerability to climate change was also established.
