Certified Expert in Climate Adaptation Finance
Climate change will have a profound impact on countries and economies. Businesses, small and large, are affected; investors face increased risks, something also observed by the insurance industry.
Governments are required to respond too, and do so in different ways: they provide adaptation planning and some (often public) infrastructure, but they also play a key role in providing a policy environment that facilitates the response measures by all stakeholders in the economy. Essential for this course is that most of these response measures – adaptation measures - require investment. There is a tremendous spectrum from small enterprises to corporates up to larger private or public infrastructure projects seeking climate adaptation finance.
This course will help you to understand the many facets of, and perspectives on, climate adaptation finance – which is not and shall not be limited to grant funding. An overview of how financing typically takes place in different adaptation related projects will form the basis for discussions about why finance is flowing towards adaptation projects in some cases whereas in other situations commercial adaptation investment is inhibited. The different perspectives of businesses, investors and policy makers on adaptation will be given. This will support the participants to reflect on appropriate policy interventions to facilitate adaptation and to identify funds from various sources available to implement required measures globally.
