Financing the Resilient City (2011)

Description

This report presents a strategy for scaling adaptation to climate change impacts within urban areas. It approaches the adaptation challenge within the overall context of other pressing risks and development challenges confronting the world’s urban regions. The strategy specifically focuses on the requirements for mobilizing large amounts of capital for urban risk reduction, above and beyond the amounts that will likely be mobilized through new international adaptation funds. It argues that adequate and effective mobilization of resources will only occur in response to localized demand for broad-based urban investment.
