PR 10.7 Bankable investment in climate adaptation

Wednesday 11 May, 13.30 – 15.15, Mees Auditorium

The Paris Agreement and the new Sustainable Development Goals placed climate resilience at the centre of economic development and poverty alleviation.

There are new tools and approaches that help governments, businesses and individuals to take account of the risks of climate impacts, and opportunities to respond to these.
