Developing countries are highly vulnerable to climate change impacts. Significant adaptation actions are needed to promote climate-resilient development at the national and subnational levels. On November 18, the CEADIR Series welcomes a panel of international experts shaping multilateral and bilateral support for planning and financing climate change adaptation in developing countries.
Jonathan Cook (USAID Global Climate Change Office) will discuss the scale of global support needed to help vulnerable countries adapt to climate impacts and mechanisms for adaptation financing. John Furlow (U.S. Department of State) will describe the National Adaptation Plan Global Network and U.S. Government assistance for adaptation planning. Laura Würtenberger (GIZ Climate Finance Readiness Programme) will discuss support for strengthening the readiness of countries to access and effectively implement adaptation funds and finance. Dr. James Bond (Senior Advisor to the Green Climate Fund) will explain how the GCF plans to scale up adaptation funding. Mikell O’Mealy (CEADIR project) will facilitate an open forum.
The event will be held from 9:00-10:30 AM (EST) at Crown Agents, 1129 20th Street NW, Washington, DC, and will also be available through a live streaming webinar. Please RSVP to join in-person or by webinar. You will have the opportunity to ask questions of the speakers.
