Live Online Chat: What Are Your Adaptation Priorities?

Determining a country’s adaptation priorities and actions is a key component of good project preparation. Because financing is scarce, the highest priority projects should be funded first.

Join adaptation project preparation and finance experts Peter King and Lee Baker from the USAID Adapt Asia-Pacific project for a live online chat session – Wednesday 19 August 2015, 10:30am-11:30am (UTC+07:00) Bangkok time

Emerging solutions to drive private investment in climate resilience

Emerging solutions to drive private investment in climate resilience

Climate change is expected to increase risks to businesses, infrastructure, assets and economies. Understanding how to involve the private sector in responding to these risks – or encouraging them to take advantage of the new business opportunities that may arise from changing climate conditions – is crucial to catalyze greater investment in activities that increase countries, businesses, and communities’ resilience.

This working paper provides emerging insights from the experience of seven Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) in driving private sector investment in climate resilience, and from a workshop on strategies and business models that could help to scale up current efforts.

The Role of the 2015 Agreement in Enhancing Adaptation to Climate Change

The Role of the 2015 Agreement in Enhancing Adaptation to Climate Change

Ce document (en anglais) montre comment l’accord de 2015 peut contribuer à améliorer les politiques et à coordonner les activités de planification pour renforcer la résilience et les capacités d’adaptation au niveau national. Il passe en revue les avantages et inconvénients techniques de différents concepts proposés durant les négociations autour de l’adaptation : établissement d’objectifs mondiaux ou nationaux ; développement ou amélioration des institutions ou de la planification de l’adaptation ; meilleure disponibilité de l’information ; et facilitation ou amélioration du financement de l’adaptation. Bon nombre de ces propositions pourraient permettre d’améliorer la planification infranationale, nationale et internationale des réponses en matière d’adaptation climatique. L’impact réel de ces propositions pourrait cependant être très différent selon la façon dont elles seront mises en œuvre sur le terrain.
