The countries of the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) regions are some of the most vulnerable to climate change. However, financial flows for private sector projects in climate adaptation remain limited. Overcoming this challenge and stimulating the expertise and innovation capacity of the private sector is critical for the future of these regions. This online event examines how ACP countries can overcome the barriers to mobilising finance to catalyse the private sector to provide goods and services which delivers climate resilient economic growth. This will include discussion on the role of various international sources of finance, such as multilateral development banks or impact investors, in catalysing other sources of investment.
This online event will share experiences and provide guidance to public and private sector stakeholders in ACP countries seeking to mobilise finance to stimulate private sector engagement in climate adaptation projects. It will highlight the need for ACP countries to better translate their National Adaptation Plans into clear investments priorities for the private sector and the pivotal role of Developmental Financial Institutions to provide tailored financial solutions which meets the needs of the private sector in these countries.
