Lost in Adaptation: Uncomplicating Resilience Finance and Measurement

Kate Montgomery Acumen

There is, apparently, much more willingness to spend on mitigating emissions than on mitigating the impacts of climate change on people. Organizations have called for 50% of climate finance to fund adaptation and resilience initiatives for climate change. Yet they are only attracting 5 cents on the dollar.
At the root of this discrepancy lies 2 causes: funders do not know what adaptation is or how to measure it.
This session will resolve that enigma by bringing together all the actors in the adaptation value chain: entrepreneurs that are helping farmers adapt, resilience-focused investors that are financing their work, and funders that are capitalizing a global transition.
In a panel discussion that starts on the ground and builds up to global capital markets, these remarkable speakers will describe how impact is being created, how it is being funded and supported, who is funding it, and, most importantly, what it means to the people who are the most exposed to climate change yet the least at fault for it.
