Adaptation and Resilience
There is an urgent need to spur greater investment into climate adaptation and resilience. However, current investments in adaptation constitute only a fraction of what is needed to avoid costly and catastrophic future impacts.
CPI tracks the current state of global finance for climate adaptation, and has published work that proposes solutions to increase investment and recommendations to fill data gaps in adaptation tracking.
This update to the Global Landscape of Climate Finance 2019 report offers a preliminary estimate for finance in 2019, drawing on data published in 2020.
Now, more than ever, development finance has a role to play in addressing both short and long-term needs, setting market signals, and taking risks the private sector can’t bear – all roles crucial for setting the trajectory toward a more sustainable future.
