Vulnerable communities in rural and urban contexts need to have the resources to apply practices that make them more resilient to climate change. However to boost community resilience more efforts, resources, and integrated approaches are needed. How can we scale-up and bolster finance for integrated approaches to enhance community resilience? Key expected outcomes of the session:

  • Insights on how more integrated approaches can bring policy coherence, mobilise investments and channel it to the most vulnerable and ramp up proven proved resilience-building practices to go to scale
  • Bring together best practices, innovative business models, and success factors for upscaling
  • Have a clear understanding of the role and responsibilities of the various stakeholders: municipalities, policy developers, investors, city developers, NGO’s, communities, science. Participation of the involved communities, and multi-stakeholder approaches are important factors.
