At what cost? Overcoming chronic gaps in equitable and fair climate change adaptation finance in a COVID World

This is a recording from a webinar session, building directly on an Alliance paper “At what Cost - How chronic gaps in adaptation finance expose the world's poorest people to climate chaos” and further work by the Overseas Development Institute looking into post-COVID-19 financing pathways for CCA and DRR, explored how to ensure commitments are met and how the onset of new global events such as the COVID-19 pandemic also present an opportunity for a climate-smart and risk-informed pandemic and economic recovery. We aimed for a solution-focused discussion around closing gaps in climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) finance, which currently does not reach countries and communities that are the most vulnerable to climate change risk and are in dire need of investments. The session was moderated by Francis Bouchard, Head of Public Affairs and Sustainability, Zurich Insurance Group, speakers and panelists included Ms. Mami Mizutori, UN Special Representative for the Secretary General for Disaster Risk Reduction, Mr. Gonzalo Muñoz, UNFCCC Climate Champion, Ms. Sue Szabo, Director General, Innovative and Climate Finance Bureau, Dr. Amara Tall, Senior Adaptation and Resilience Specialist, Climate Change Group, Ms. Tilly Alcayna, Author, At What Costs?, and Ms. Adriana Quevedo, Senior Research Officer, Overseas Development Institute
