Scaling-up Adaptation Finance-Is it Really a Mission Impossible?

Organizer: EIB

Date: Thu / Dec. 3 - 18:00

Time: 18:00

Area: Blue Zone

While there is no doubt that adaptation finance needs to be significantly scaled-up to deal with climate change, it remains only a small fraction of global climate finance and the poor cousin of mitigation finance. This side event will explore some new ways to increase adaptation finance. The panel comprises of adaptation specialists and investment professional from the private and public sector. Discussion will focus on financial mechanisms for countries most vulnerable to climate change and include concrete project examples and ideas how adaptation can be better integrated in infrastructure project finance and as standalone activity.
