CAS 2021 Action Theme – Finance & Investment

One of the Action Themes at the Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS) 2021 is Finance & Investment.

Why is Finance & Investment an Action Theme at CAS 2021?

Finance is critical to accelerating climate adaptation efforts and to building global resilience to worsening climate impacts. Even though the imperative for action is clear, money is not flowing at the pace or scale needed.

Other Summit Action Themes show great demand for increased finance to strengthen the resilience of our economies and societies. While there are clear economic benefits to investing in adaptation, there is much work to do to overcome several challenges, including the need for coordination, large upfront payments, and insufficient incentives for private sector investments in adaptation.

How is CAS 2021 going to make a difference for financing climate adaptation?

At the CAS 2021 Anchoring Event on Finance & Investment, partners and stakeholders will launch approaches and share experiences on the following topics to accelerate the systematic shift of finance and investment as drivers of climate adaptation and resilience.
