Aligning finance with climate-resilient development

Achieving climate-resilient economies and societies will not only require increasing the billions of financial flows for adaptation, but also to drive the trillions of public and private financial flows and investment away from potentially mal-adapted activities towards those that contribute to climate-resilient economies and societies. There is a need to align finance with adaptation and resilience goals. This event brings together leading experts to discuss what would be needed to accelerate progress towards Article 2.1c’s goal of making finance flows consistent with climate-resilient development.

Opening presentation by Michael Mullan (OECD) and Nicola Ranger (CGFI)
