Navigating opportunities and risks in the face of climate uncertainty

Join us for a breakfast roundtable at New York Climate Week.

Together with Pegasus Capital Advisors, we are pleased to invite you to join leaders from the private sector and government for a dynamic roundtable and breakfast event focused on adaptation and resilience strategies.

The private sector can leverage its resources, expertise, and innovation to support the development and implementation of effective adaptation solutions, such as climate-smart infrastructure, regenerative agriculture and resilient food systems, water and health solutions, insurance products, and renewable energy projects. However, it is crucial that private sector investments in adaptation and resilience are guided by locally led considerations of inclusivity and equity, ensuring that vulnerable communities, particularly women and marginalized groups, are not left behind. This can include engagement with local communities, prioritizing investments in vulnerable areas, and ensuring that adaptation projects are inclusive, accessible, equitable, and also protect biodiversity.

We are honored to be joined by Gina McCarthy, the first-ever White House National Climate Advisor and former U.S. EPA Administrator, as well as Dina Esposito, Assistant to the Administrator for the Bureau for Resilience and Food Security at USAID.

Panelists:

Craig Cogut, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Pegasus Capital Advisors
Michael Okoroafor, Chief Sustainability Officer, McCormick & Company
Simballa Sylla, President, Sustainable African Foods
Moderated by Nathanial Matthews, CEO of the Global Resilience Partnership

The panelists will discuss the importance of private sector investment to build resilience and adapt to the impacts of climate change, particularly in developing countries where public financing is limited.

This event is current at capacity.
