Think Globally, Fund Locally - Adaptive finance to strengthen locally-led climate change adaptation

27 September, 2022

This webinar reflects on the need to strengthen and scale up access to finance for locally-led climate change adaptation. The discussion includes a review of the principles for locally-led adaptation and recent research by the international instate for environment and development, and a discussion with climate adaptation experts from Save the Children and the Thailand Environment Institute on their experiences to support community-led adaptation. Drawing on research, previous and ongoing projects in Asia and the Pacific as well as in Africa the discussion sheds light on examples, challenges, and good practices to bridge access to finance via capacity building, flexible financing, and collaboration for co-finance and co-benefits. The webinar is hosted by the Regional Resource Centre for Asia and the Pacific, at the Asian Institute of Technology.
