Climate Resilience and Adaptation Investment: The Post-Covid Opportunity

Co-convened by the Lightsmith Group and the Global Adaptation and Resilience Investment (GARI) working group, this session will be a follow-up discussion to the investor and policy panels held during the three-day 2nd Annual FASTR panel sessions held in July 2020 during London Climate Action Week. The panel discussion will be a temperature check on awareness and interest in physical climate risk, as well as in investment opportunities in climate resilience and adaptation – how are investors and other stakeholders viewing risk? Where are the opportunities? And how have both of these changed (or could change) in the midst of Covid-19?
