Financing climate resilience in developing countries
Ben Broche, Climate Policy Initiative
From 2003 to 2013, natural disasters caused $1.5 trillion in economic damages worldwide, with $550 billion in developing countries. As climate change worsens, so will these challenges, with sectors like agriculture and infrastructure particularly vulnerable. There are emerging solutions for scaling private finance for climate resilience. For example, the Lab has supported the launch of 26 instruments and companies, which have together mobilized over $1 billion, including for climate resilience projects. This panel organized by Climate Policy Initiative will bring together experts to share emerging solutions to drive private finance for climate resilience in developing countries.
