The global team is resourced to support the major campaigns Race to Zero, Race to Resilience, as well as sector-focused systems transformation using the Climate Action Pathways, 2030 Breakthroughs and the Sharm El Sheikh Adaptation Agenda (SAA) launched at COP 27 by the COP Presidency in collaboration of the HLCs.
