[Background of this event]

Regarding climate adaptation, demands for technology transfer and funding support are increasing, and there are more requests for the support from developing countries, by way of NAPA, National Adaptation Programmes of Action, and others.

On the other hand, public funds developed countries can contribute are not everlasting, and acute shortage in funding has been pointed out. In addition to the continuous efforts by the public sector to raise the funds, it is said that expanding know-how and funding in the private sector is crucial.

Based on this background, METI is nurturing the adaptation industry and offering supports for building the framework that can solve issues of adaptation through business.

In this event, METI will introduce the efforts it has made, as well as discuss the future course of adaptation business.

Attendance of policy makers, business entities and persons concerned are most welcome.
