COP26 Catalyst for Climate Action: Action recommendations for capacity building

COP26 Catalyst for Climate Action is a framework initiated by the UK COP26 Presidency and convened by Wilton Park, which brings together key stakeholders on capacity building in support of the Paris Agreement to discuss challenges and to catalyse action in four key thematic areas.

In addition to regular meetings of Action Groups comprising technical experts and partner countries, we have hosted a series of regional and global conversations to better understand the capacity-building challenges faced by developing countries as they prepare to implement the Paris Agreement. 

These conversations brought together key stakeholders on capacity building for access to finance, participation in carbon markets, action on adaptation, and transparency and reporting.  The Action Recommendations provided for download on the right margin communicate the key priorities for action in each of these areas, as identified by the Action Group members as well as by hundreds of stakeholders consulted during 2021. At the time of launch, they have been endorsed by organisations and countries involved in developing them – we invite further countries and organisations to endorse them, and will update them before the end of COP26 with additional endorsements.
