Adequately addressing climate change poses one of the greatest financial challenges for the foreseeable future. While international financial resources are being channeled into both mitigation and adaptation projects, resources for adaptation ($22 billion in 2016) are nowhere near the projected costs of adapting to climate change impacts ($140-$300 billion annually by 2030).
And it’s not just the amount of finance but also its quality, who it reaches, and for what purposes. It is critical to include communities and civil society organizations (CSO) in developing climate finance tracking systems and determining which projects are the most necessary for communities. CSOs can help ensure that public decisions and financial resources address climate-related priorities, challenges and those in greatest need of assistance.
Join us for a lively discussion with civil society actors from the U.S., Uganda and the Philippines to learn how they are advancing effective, equitable adaptation finance systems to build resilience in a changing climate.
