Investment Session 2B 

Mobilising Finance for Adaptation

- Harnessing Untapped Potential  

11.30-12.30

According to UNEP, adaptation costs in developing countries are five to ten times greater than current public adaptation finance flows. Blended finance offers one great solution for investments in adaptation measures such as resilient infrastructure or nature-based solutions. This session explored which finance mechanisms and innovation opportunities are best suited to address the adaptation finance gap.
