From Risk to Reward: Business Imperatives to Finance Climate Adaptation and Resilience

Session hosted at the COP Resilience Hub

The event will explore private finance opportunities for climate adaptation and resilience, focusing on emerging markets and developing economies. The discussion builds on BCG’s work this year to establish the business case for such financing, as part of BCG’s contribution to the PREPARE Call to Action.

The event will bring together global business leaders, financiers, and governments. The panel will discuss:

  • What is the business case for the private sector investing in adaptation and resilience?
  • How has your organization helped drive resilience for communities, economies, and ecosystems?
  • What enablers and vehicles can successfully mobilize private capital?
