As we look toward a post-COVID-19 era, investing in sustainable infrastructure is crucial for reigniting global growth, attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and reducing climate risk. However, it is generally recognised that additional investments in the billions of dollars per year are needed to make infrastructure resilient to disasters and climate change.
To better understand these issues, the Investor Group on Climate Change (IGCC), the Asia Investor Group on Climate Change (AIGCC) and the Global Infrastructure Facility (GIF) are pleased to invite you to a joint webinar that considers mechanisms crucial for enabling public and private participation and investment in adaptation and resilience practices across infrastructure sectors.
The webinar aims to explore adaptation and resilience approaches mutually beneficial for government, private climate action and infrastructure finance representatives and stakeholders as well as provide insights on how to implement climate-resilient approaches that enable and attract infrastructure finance.
This is a unique opportunity for open dialogue among IGCC, AIGCC, and GIF members, as well as invited developed country, emerging markets and developing economy government participants, along with multilateral development banks active in the Asia-Pacific region. The webinar will explore emerging practices, good examples of government action and how private investment in adaptation and resilience can be better supported and accelerated.
Key areas of focus:
- Multi-level integrated planning
- Systems-based approaches
- Climate data collection and accessibility
- The business case for private participation
- Valuing resilience
