The target is to achieve the UN Global Goals – the ‘blueprint for a better world’ – by 2030. But what happens next? The Resilience Frontiers initiative is taking a holistic approach to identifying innovative solutions that will answer that question.

Launched last week in Songdo, during the Korea Global Adaptation Week, it brought together a diverse group of futurists, policymakers, NGOs, business leaders and academics, united in their desire to go beyond the conventional limits in thinking what’s possible, to brainstorm the types of transformational changes that will be needed to sustain humanity in the face of climate change after 2030.

Youssef Nassef, Director, Adaptation Programme, UNFCCC, spoke to us about the importance of the launch event in South Korea – watch what he had to say.

Resilience Frontiers is an interagency effort undertaken by the UNFCCC secretariat in collaboration with Canada’s International Development Research Centre, EIT Climate-KIC, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the Global Water Partnership, the Green Climate Fund, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the United Nations Environment Programme, and the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs.
