Scaling Private Investment in Climate Adaptation and Biodiversity

Why has it been so much more difficult to unlock private financing for climate change adaption and biodiversity investments than for climate mitigation? And how is this picture changing? This session brings together practitioners in the fields of climate and nature investing Рprivate companies investing in climate adaption and biodiversity activities, financiers in capital markets, regulators and development banks Рto highlight a range of practical approaches to scaling private investments in these areas. The discussion will focus on concrete opportunities and additional actions needed from the private sector, governments and the international community to further drive scaling in these areas. The webinar was hosted by Scaling Community of Practice and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
