|Wednesday 11 May, 15.45 – 17.30, Penn Room I|
How can small and medium-sized enterprises in developing countries and emerging economies adapt to climate change while dealing with ‘typical SME’ challenges, e.g. short-term planning, resource constraints and limited technical expertise. This session will demonstrate a range of tools to build adaptation capacity in the private sector, including on awareness raising and on developing individual adaptation strategies. These tools have been developed and tested in the GIZ programme Strengthening Private Sector capacity to Adapt to Climate Change. The aim of the session is to engage with practitioners and researchers on private sector adaptation and to provide an overview on how small and medium enterprises can be supported in adapting to the impacts of climate change.
