Adaptation and Resilience

Photo by Daniela Chiriac

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.

To help investors and policymakers better understand needs and opportunities, and close the adaptation investment gap, CPI tracks the current state of global finance for climate adaptation, guides recommendations on how best to fill data gaps in adaptation tracking, and conducts analysis and proposes solutions aimed to mobilize private finance for adaptation and resilience.
