PR 10.6 Adaptation finance for private sector

Wednesday 11 May, 13.30 – 15.15, Diamond Room II

The role of private finance in adaptation at the project level is not yet understood fully. The aim of the session is to provide an overview of the role and opportunities for private sector actors financing adaptation in developing countries and emerging markets. It will also describe which private finance instruments are well suited for financing different adaptation activities, building on real case studies from countries such as Morocco and Bangladesh from the Private Sector Adaptation Climate Change Programme (PSACC). The presentations will aid participant’s discussions on opportunities for public sector intervention to support private finance for adaptation.
