Second webinar of work programme on long-term finance
Second webinar, Friday, 21 September 2012

As developing countries gain an improved understanding of their adaptation investment requirements, and build a stronger basis for articulating their financing priorities and attracting climate finance, an assessment of available and potential sources and options for adaptation finance becomes ever more important.

The first UNFCCC Workshop on Long-term finance and the 1st Webinar covered a range of important issues in relation to costing of adaptation to climate change impacts. Building on the topics covered during the first Workshop and first Webinar this second Webinar covers a range of key issues related to adaptation finance in developing countries.

In particular, this webinar reviews the following issues, namely:
  • The potential of existing and new sources of public finance in addressing adaption finance needs of developing countries
  • Insight emerging from the experience of bilateral and multilateral adaption financing mechanisms in scaling up financial resources in the short, medium and long term
  • The role of the financial mechanism of the Convention in mobilizing scaled up financial resources to address climate adaptation related financing need of developing countries
  • Assessment of replicability and scalability of types of adaptation funding models based on the experience of the Adaptation Fund, other bilateral and multilateral funds, and national funds.
  • The potential of private sector engagement in adaptation activities: What is the potential for scalability and reliability of sustainable microfinance and microinsurance schemes?
