Finance in Common Summit 2020: Accelerating investment for climate adaptation and resilience

Monday 9 November 2020 – 9:00am to Thursday 12 November 1:00pm

About this event

The event will bring together financial institutions with a public mandate, governments, the private sector, the Global Centre for Adaptation (GCA) and other key organisations, to identify ways for accelerating private sector finance for adaptation and resilience.

The event provides the launch pad for greater public private collaboration within the context of the international COVID-19 response to stimulate private sector investments and catalyse domestic markets for the business solutions needed to address local adaptation and resilience needs, including supporting those that are most vulnerable to climate impacts.
