The session was moderated by Mr. Krishna Vatsa, a Member of, the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), India. The panel advocated the need to measure and promote resilience dividends amongst all stakeholders.

The panellists highlighted the need for integrating resilience into investments, policies, planning, and governance to safeguard infrastructure, investments, and the community. They further stressed challenges including lack of data, coordination, financing gaps, and conceptual and implementation capacity at the local level in integrating adaptation.

They also shared efforts towards resilience integration including Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs), community initiatives with nature, and locally-led adaptation and resilience projects. These included climate-resilient projects from the Indo-Pacific region. The panel commended the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI), supported by all Quad partners, as an example of effective partnership amongst global stakeholders to advocate for resilience and provide support to countries for accelerating economic growth and helping achieve Sustainable Development Goals.
