Futureproofing Cities to Avoid Atlantis – Evolving Finance for Adaptation Solutions

Wednesday, 20 April 2022, 9:30AM – 11:30AM
Co-Organiser: China Water Risk
Access: All delegates and trade visitors

Existential threats from sea level rise demand a grand redesign of our cities, and careful planning needs to start now. Billions of dollars will have to be raised to adapt and futureproof our cities, yet most of climate financing is skewed towards decarbonisation not adaptation. Also, rising seas could trigger systemic shocks in global financial systems if concentrated chronic risks from coastal threats across Asia are not managed. How can cities and banks survive? Will water risks hamper future investments? Why is it still so hard to raise funds for ambitious adaptation projects? What steps do we need to take to adapt and thrive?
