The poorest countries emit significantly less than rich countries but are more exposed to extreme weather. How to assess countries’ responsibility for climate change and is this a fair method for defining their contribution to the global climate effort? And how to quantify the costs of extreme weather events? Leading specialists will present different perspectives and scientific methods for assessing climate responsibility, and how to apply this in policy and practice.

​Private-sector finance for adaptation in LDCs? Spelling out the options

Organised by the Stockholm Environment Institute.
By invitation only.


Least Developed Countries (LDCs) are among the most vulnerable to climate change impacts, so finance for adaptation is crucial for them. Within the UNFCCC, there is a strong expectation that a substantial share of the funds will come from private sources. Yet is this realistic? This event, organized by SEI’s Initiative on Climate Finance, will present analysis about the prospects for private-sector adaptation finance in LDCs. Policy-makers and adaptation and finance experts will then discuss the options, focusing on how to scale up adaptation finance in LDCs and how to ensure that finance is available to support national adaptation priorities.

Climate services can serve as powerful tools for managing climate variability and for climate change adaptation. The Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) aims at integrating science-based climate information and prediction into planning, policy and practice. The panel will discuss what types of climate services are under development and/or are needed in order to meet local adaptation needs. We will draw on experience from communities in Ethiopia, Malawi, Tanzania and GFCS pilot interventions in the Sahel, in order to discuss what is needed in terms of funding, governance and knowledge.
