About the event
Local communities are at the frontline of facing climate impacts and driving adaptation solutions. Evidence shows that at the community level, women are often leading resilience strategies to deal with disaster- and climate-related shocks and stresses. However, there remains a large gap in providing local communities, especially poor and vulnerable communities, with the enabling environment needed to scale up adaptation solutions. It is in this context that the Asian Development Bank (ADB) has established the Community Resilience Partnership Program (CRPP) to scale up local investments in climate adaptation that address the nexus of climate, poverty and gender.
IIED's Ritu Bharadwaj will join the high level panel discussion at this session that will identify approaches and measures for scaling up climate adaptation investments at the local level and discuss how CRPP can help address key barriers and promote innovative solutions.
