Climate change poses an unprecedented threat to humanity in the 21st century and communities in the developing world are most at risk to be affected.
Funding that helps vulnerable populations and ecosystems adapt to climate change is urgently needed. Investing $1.8 trillion in climate adaptation over the next decade is estimated to save $7.1 trillion by 2030.
This interactive session aims to inspire the creation of partnerships that mobilize investments for climate adaptation, using the Dutch Fund for Climate and Development (DFCD) as a case study for public-private sector collaboration.
Speakers will discuss key challenges to making climate adaptation bankable and will encourage different development actors to collaboratevly overcome these challenges using an integrated landscape approach.
