Climate-Resilient Infrastructure Financing - a Webinar

Infrastructure financing is a perennial problem: the public sector tends to focus on immediate needs, rather than longer-term investment. But infrastructure investments can both mitigate climate risks and improve adaptive capacity. Climate infrastructure finance is thus the first webinar topic in the DE-US series. We shall examine the general infrastructure finance problem, existing tools for raising funds and the special conditions and opportunities that the logic and process of the Paris Accord provides. In particular, we will review major emissions trading schemes and their prospects for raising climate infrastructure funds while reducing emissions and raising awareness of the costs of burning carbon.
